This is the breakfast I’ve been making recently for the girls every time we go up to the Tiny House. I love that it has become a new ritual (that they love and ask for!). The last time we were there my girls had friends with them (another set of sisters the same age!), and all four of them GOBBLED up these Whole-wheat Buttermilk Pancakes with Cinnamon Apples.
I didn’t really know much about the friends’ food preferences, and I was so glad I hit the nail on the head with the cinnamon apples. They all asked me to make more apples, and my older daughter kept saying, “These pancakes are extra good for some reason” (even though I made them the same as I always do … she must’ve just been really hungry!). :)
Do I Have to Use Buttermilk?
You can definitely sub regular milk when making pancakes, but the buttermilk helps achieve a fluffier panacake—which I personally like better!
Other Topping Suggestions
We definitely hit a home run with the cinnamon apples on top of our buttermilk pancakes, but feel free to mix it up with blueberries, strawberries, or even homemade sugar-free jam.
Nothing like ensuring a bunch of teens have satisfied and full tummies before going out on a hike for the day. Oh, how I love our time in the NC mountains! :)
