Pancakes are a breakfast staple. Nothing reminds me of my childhood more than a huge stack of pancakes with whipped cream and loads of maple syrup. Unfortunately, my metabolism isn't that of a 10-year-old anymore and a stack of sugary, buttery pancakes every morning will pack on the pounds faster than you can say “Bisquick.” The good news is that there is a ton of ways to make healthier versions of pancakes! In fact, these clean pancakes are so delish, I actually like them better than the real thing. Try making these apple cinnamon pancakes for all of the flavor and none of the guilt.

Apple Shopping Tip

When buying apples, they should be firm, free of bruises, and heavy for their size.

Apple Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
