Coconut Apple Walnut Pancakes
Photo by recipe author

Tender and fluffy from the all the eggs and yogurt, lightly nutty from the whole wheat flour and oh so flavorful from the cinnamon, apples and coconut, a most comforting and delicious fall "treat" - breakfast, brunch, breakfast for dinner...YUM!

Servings: 4 (12 4-inch pancakes)
Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Apple topping:

  • 4 medium sized Fuji apples, diced small, but not fine
  • 1-2 tablespoons whole sugar, as desired
  • 1/8-1/4 teaspoons cinnamon, to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon grass-fed butter


In a small saucepan, combine apples, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. Set aside 1/4 cup of the raw apple mixture to use in the pancakes. Add water and butter to the rest and simmer on low heat while you make the pancakes, stirring occasionally. The apples should be soft and permeated with flavor, but still firm. Do not boil.


Sift together first five ingredients and set aside.

Beat eggs, then blend in yogurt and milk until smooth. Add dry ingredients, stirring only until moistened. The batter will be lumpy, which is fine. Do not over-stir or pancakes will not rise to light and fluffy. Add the 1/4 cup apple topping, walnuts and coconut and gently stir only to combine.

Preheat a cast-iron skillet or griddle on med-low, grease lightly with coconut oil and ladle batter to the desired pancake size, spreading batter gently and evenly to about 1/3" thick. When tops start to bubble, flip to cook the other side. Flip only once and do not press or otherwise disturb while cooking. Re-grease pan with more coconut oil as needed.

Enjoy warm, topped with grass-fed butter, organic maple syrup and apple topping, garnished with a bit more shredded coconut and a pinch of cinnamon if desired.

I actually used and intended to specify *coconut flakes* instead of shredded coconut in this recipe, but I'm sure both would work!
