Easy Apple Skillet Pancake {Grain Free, Dairy Free}


Is your breakfast boring?

Before I learned how important it was to eat a breakfast that had a great combination of protein, fat, and carbs my children would want to eat peanut butter toast every morning for breakfast.  For a long time I gave into this ritual because it seemed so easy.  But, I don’t believe that it was the most nutritious thing for them to eat every morning.   Since then, I have worked hard to provide my family with easy, nutritious, breakfasts with balanced macro-nutrient combinations, like this Easy Apple Skillet Pancake creation.  If you are eating macro-nutrient combinations are adequate for your genetic make-up, then you are setting yourself up for some great blood sugar balance for the day.

This morning I whipped up this Easy Apple Skillet Pancake.  It was almost too easy to put together and my children were begging for more. Yum!  This skillet creation can easily be made dairy free and grain free and can be simply whipped up, thrown into a cast iron skillet and popped in the oven.  I’m all about easy breakfasts, lunches, and err… dinners.  Did I mention that I’m a work-at-home mom of three little ones?  If it is easy peasy, and nutritious then I can be all about it.

Try my Easy Apple Skillet Pancake and see if your kids are begging for more.

1 cup of milk (I used raw milk, but you can use almond or coconut milk for a dairy free version)

  3. Is there something you recommend if we don’t have a cast iron skillet? Would putting it in a regular baking pan or casserole dish be fine? Do we need to heat it up before hand like you did the cast iron or just pop it in like a cake? thank you. it looks delicious!

  4. Hi, we made this tonight and I’m wondering what I might have done wrong? I followed the recipe to a tee and came out with basically apple tasting eggs. It looked nothing like the ‘bready’ appearance in the pic. But like..bubbly, brown eggs.

      Oh no, Melissa! I reviewed the recipe and I don’t see anything wrong with it. Did you use the coconut flour?

  5. I was surprised by the texture and flavor, more akin to a sweet omelet. Tastes great with some creme fraiche!

    I wonder how this would come out using peaches fresh or canned?

  7. Looks delicious! I can’t wait to try it!
