Nice recipe. I recommend leaving out the honey or warming it in a hot water bath. Never heat honey in the microwave. It changes the digestability and pH.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Stir flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt together in a medium mixing bowl.
  2. Put juice, oil and honey into 2-cup non-metal measuring cup or small bowl; heat briefly in the microwave (about 30 seconds) to soften the honey. This step is not necessary if honey is omitted.
  3. Add grated apple and egg to liquid mixture.
  4. Pour the liquid ingredients into the flour mixture ande mix well, using a whisk.
  5. If the batter is too stiff, add a little more liquid (if egg is omitted, about 2 tablespoons more liquid will be needed).
  6. Pour by spoonfuls onto medium hot griddle, making small 4-inch pancakes. Serve with maple syrup or applesauce.
  7. WAFFLES: Increase oil to 2 tablespoons. Waffles work well, even if honey and egg are omitted.
