- Mix flour, spice, and sugar in bowl.
- Add 2 drops of lemon juice to milk and let sit for 1–2 mins. This makes buttermilk and you will get extra fluffy pancakes.

- Combine egg mixture with flour mixture and stir until smooth. Add grated apple, and stir well again.
- Heat a non-stick frypan over medium heat, drop a spoonful of the mixture into the pan. Cook until bubbles begin to appear on top, then flip. Cook until golden brown. Repeat until all the mixture is finished.
- Serve with fresh sliced banana, or canned pie apple, and a dollop of low fat natural yoghurt.
Tip: If you have run short on eggs then substitute ¼ cup of soda water for 1 large egg.
Dietitian Notes / Recipe Tips
Wholewheat flours contain the whole grain, which means they are richer in fibre, which keeps you feeling fuller for longer. Apples have a long shelf-life in the fridge. Granny Smith apples don’t go brown when grated, but you can use any apple variety.
