Recipe: Apple Oatmeal Pancakes | Jess & Josh Cook

If you didn’t already know, it’s Breakfast Week this week, so why don’t you give these pancakes a go?

What you’ll need – Makes 4 pancakes

  • 1 apple
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 4 tbsp butter + more for frying
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 100 ml almond milk
  • A pinch of salt


  1. Core and half apple.
  2. Cut one half into small chunks and throw in a sauce pan with the caster sugar and half the butter (2 tbsp). This makes your apple sauce.
  3. Cook on low heat until apple becomes really soft, 5-10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile combine the flour, oatmeal, cinnamon, butter, maple syrup, baking powder, vanilla extract, salt, egg and the rest of the butter in mixing bowl.
  5. Grate the other half of your apple into bowl along with your finished apple sauce and stir until fully combined, then add your milk.
  6. Heat some butter in a frying pan on medium/high heat.
  7. With a large wooden spoon scoop out some pancake mix into frying pan making a small thick pancake so you can get 2 in a pan at once (Otherwise the pancake will be too large and you’ll have trouble flipping it).
  8. Cook pancakes for 2-3 minutes on each side until nice and brown adding more butter if necessary.
  9. Serve with maple syrup!
