  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 2 small apples grated or one large apple

  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 large egg at room temperature

    Dry ingrdenients for the pancakes
  • In a jug, lightly mix the egg, yogurt, and milk.
    Wet ingredients mixed in a jug
  • Melt the butter and add to the egg milk mix.
    Grated apple added to the dry ingredients
  • Set the skillet on the stove, oil lightly with coconut, or sunflower oil, and leave to heat on medium.
  • Grate the apples.
  • Add the grated apple to the dry ingredients, and pour in the wet ingredients from the jug and stir together.
  • The mix should drop off a spoon but not run off. If it’s too stiff add a little more milk or a little water.
  • Drop a tablespoonful onto the skillet and wait for bubbles to form on the top before flipping over. If your skillet is large enough you should be able to do four at a time.
    On the skillet
  • When done the pancakes should be about half an inch thick and golden in color. Remove to a warmed plate while you finish cooking the batch.
  • Serve with butter and maple syrup, slices of cheddar cheese, or strawberries and whipped cream.
