Cinnamon-Oatmeal Pancakes with Apple-Maple Syrup


2 cups – prepared pancake mix (regular or whole-grain)

1/2 cup – old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats (not instant)

2 tablespoons – brown sugar

1 teaspoon – ground cinnamon

1 1/4 cups – fat free or lowfat milk

2 – eggs

2 tablespoons – butter

2 cups – Granny Smith apple, chopped

1 cup – maple syrup

1 teaspoon – vanilla extract


Heat a griddle to 350°F. In a bowl, stir the pancake mix, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, milk and eggs together until blended (a few lumps are okay). Lightly coat griddle with nonstick spray, then pour 1/3 cup batter per pancake onto griddle. When the pancakes appear dry on the edges and bubbles appear on the surface, turn over with a spatula and continue to cook until done. Serve warm with Apple-Maple Syrup and a glass of milk.

Apple-Maple Syrup:

In a large skillet melt the butter over medium heat. Add the apple and sauté, stirring often, until apples are soft but not mushy, about 3 minutes. Add the maple syrup, bring to a simmer, and remove from heat.
