Apple Pie

Today we have another case of “we found a new recipe, so let’s make one in every flavour combination possible”.  You might remember us explaining this in another post not too long ago.  Today, though, we are not talking about french toast.  Today we are talking about one of our all-time favourite breakfasts that we make at least once a week, and yet for some reason have failed to share it with you all! (Shame on us…:P)

The recipe we are referring to is a pancake in a jar!  After the original peanut butter and banana version, we were pretty much hooked.  We’ve been making every variation of this recipe that you can possibly think of, including, of course, our eggnog rendition.  But that is only the tip of the iceberg!  So in an effort to bring you up-to-date with our slight obsession, we bring one of our favourite versions:

Apple Pie!  Consisting of soft, sweet cooked apples, plump and juicy raisins, crunchy walnuts, and of course a fluffy “pancake” laced with ribbons of apple butter, this is an apple-pie lovers dream come true!

Of course, this also has plenty of cinnamon, too, but that goes without saying, doesn’t it?

So here’s the thing, if you love (or even just like) apple pie, love pancakes, and love breakfasts that can be done in the microwave in under 5 minutes, then you should probably go make this.  It will change the way you look at mason jars, and probably have you dreaming up a million other flavours you could make.  But if you’re short on ideas, don’t fear, because we’ve got a whole bunch more combos comin’ your way! 🙂

Apple Pie Pancake in a Jar

DSCN5071

Prep Time: 5 min
Cook Time: 5 min
Serves: 2

Ingredients

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
pinch of salt
1 tbsp almond butter
2/3 c. milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 c. apple butter
1 large apple, diced
1/4 c. raisins

Directions:

In a medium-sized bowl, combine all the dry ingredients.  Add the almond butter, milk, and vanilla extract to the bowl and stir until everything is just combined.  Add the apple butter to the batter, and gently stir, just to swirl the apple butter in, but not to stir it in completely- you want ribbons of apple butter!

Dice up the apple into small pieces.  Mix the apples and the raisins together and divide evenly into the bottom of two medium-sized mason jars.  Divide the batter in half and spoon into the jars on top of the apple and raisin mixture.  Place in the microwave and cook on high for 4-5 minutes, or until the dough is firm to the touch.  Top with additional almond butter, yogurt, cinnamon, raisins, walnuts, ect. and enjoy!

  3. I have had a very busy week but am finally able to read some blogs again. What a treat it is to come back to see three lovely new recipes. I’ve never had bread pudding in my life, but that along with this recipe definitely appeals to me!

  4. Wow this idea is amazing plus love the flavour you went with. I love apple pie. How about a carrot cake flavour with carrot, walnuts and somehow cream cheese?
