    3-Ingredient Apple Cinnamon Pancakes


    • 3 eggs (1 egg + 2 egg whites)
    • 1 medium apple
    • 1/4 tsp cinnamon


    1. Cut apple into small pieces and then add to a food processor along with the egg, egg whites, and cinnamon; blend until smooth.
    2. Preheat a skillet (medium-low heat), spray with non-stick spray, and pour in half of the batter while shaping it into a pancake with a spoon.
    3. Heat pancake until partially cooked and flip. (Be sure to use medium-low heat; pancake is pretty fragile, so you don’t want it to burn and stick to the pan.)
    4. Once the pancake is cooked through, remove from heat and add your favorite toppings.

    Serves 1

    I topped my pancakes with peanut butter and slices of fresh strawberries. Mmm!

    I also drank a glass of iced coffee with almond milk.

    Call for Guest Posts

    Thanks to everyone who submitted a guest post proposal for the week I am away on vacation. I received well over 200 proposal ideas, so it’s definitely going to be a tough decision. There were a TON of awesome ideas, so I’m planning to select about a dozen to feature on CNC while I’m on the cruise, but I’ll hang onto the rest for future guest posts.

    For the proposals I pick for when I’m on vacation, I’ll be in touch early this week, so you’ll have about two weeks to write your post and get it to me. Again, thank you to everyone who sent in a proposal idea. I’m really excited about them!

    Love this recipe! I bet it would be super yummy with bananas instead of apples too!

    I tried this for dinner tonight…. DELICIOUS! I used dark chocolate peanut butter instead 🙂 Mine just did not look nearly as pretty as yours did. How did you get it to stick together?

    Wow, that looks like a great recipe! I must experiment! Been in love with protein pancakes of late and these look like a good low cal option. I can figure out the calories myself, but did you do any sort of breakdown on nutritionals?

    I made this and it didn’t come out half as nice as yours! I think this recipe is more of an apple omelett! Or I need to work on it. Maybe I’ll add some flour next time because there was no “cake”!

    I made these last weekend–yum!! 🙂 Mine didn’t turn into a pancake though (I’m glad to see Lisa said the same thing so I didn’t mess it up!), but the apple scramble was good!

    Im planning on making these for my kids, they recently tried the 3 ingredient banana pancakes and loved them! But one thing, WE ARE RUNNING OUT OF BANANAS! All we have left are apples and my kids are begging for them once again… So this is a recipe we MUST try! Thanks
