Oatmeal Pancakes with Apple Maple Sauce


Nice, hearty pancakes that will fill you up on less sugar than regular pancakes. The smaller you cut up the apples the faster they will cook. You can substitute 2 instant oatmeal packets for the quick oats, if desired.

Apple-Maple Sauce:

  • 3 apples, cored and diced

  • ½ cup water

  • 1 orange, juiced

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon, or more to taste

  • ½ cup maple syrup


  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup quick-cooking oats

  • ½ cup milk

  • 1 egg

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 1 packet sucralose sugar substitute (such as Splenda®)

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt


  1. Combine apples, water, and orange juice in a small pot; bring to a boil and reduce heat to medium-low. Stir 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and cinnamon into apple mixture. Simmer, stirring frequently, until apples are light golden and most of the liquid is absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes. Stir maple syrup into apples and reduce heat to low.

  2. Beat flour, oats, milk, egg, coconut oil, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, sucralose, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl until batter is just-combined.

  3. Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium-low heat. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 5 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 3 to 4 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve finished pancakes with hot apple-maple sauce.
