Oatmeal Pancakes with Apples and Peanut Butter Maple Cream


Oatmeal Pancakes with Apples


We love pancakes and as the temps get cooler in the fall and winter months we are always looking for a warm filling breakfast. We like apple pancakes and oatmeal so I thought I would combine the two and make oatmeal pancakes topped with apples. As I was in the kitchen reaching for the vanilla I saw a jar of Mighty Maple Peanut Butter and grabbed it. We like our peanut butter too, well the girls and I. We must have a dozen different nut butters open at any given time, what can I say we like options. Visions in my head danced around, I wasn’t going to smear nut butter on pancakes again, I wanted something pretty to go with the apples, lighter and maybe fluffier… finally I had it! I would mix the Mighty Maple PB with my favorite coconut milk greek yogurt! I savored every bite of these pancakes and if I wasn’t so full I would wanted more! If you are more of a maple syrup fan you can also top these with the apples and maple syrup.
