Ingredients

Streusel Topping

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar (or coconut sugar)
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

Pancake Batter

  • 4 tablespoons melted butter, divided
  • 2 medium apples, peeled and diced into 1/2-in cubes
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar (or coconut sugar)
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups buttermilk

Spiced Maple Syrup

  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Instructions

Streusel Topping

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a small bowl, combine all streusel ingredients until crumbly. Spread in a single layer on prepared baking sheet. Bake at 350F 8-10 minutes until a light golden brown. Set aside to cool.

Pancake Batter

  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat 1 tablespoon butter until pan is hot then add apples. Saute apples, stirring occasionally until apples are softened and tender. Remove from heat and cool.
  • In a large bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and sugar. In a separate bowl, whisk egg, remaining 3 tablespoons melted butter, and buttermilk until smooth. Fold flour mixture into liquid until batter is just combined. Fold in 1 cup sauteed apple mixture (reserve the rest of the apples for topping the pancakes)
  • Working in batches, drop pancake batter by 1/3 cupfuls onto a greased hot skillet. Sprinkle streusel over first uncooked side of each pancake and let pancakes cook 2-3 minutes per side, flipping once. Keep pancakes warm.

Spiced Maple Syrup

  • Combine all syrup ingredients in a small saucepan and heat over medium-high heat until just simmering.
  • Serve pancakes warm with reserved apple mixture, any remaining streusel, and warm spiced maple syrup on top. Enjoy!
