Cardamom Sprouted Wheat Pancakes with Sauted Maple Apples

Bomb, healthy, weekend breakfast, enough said.

Cardamom Sprouted Wheat Pancakes

Sauted  Maple Apples

2 cups thinly sliced apples
1 tablespoon vegan butter
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

A sprinkling of nuts is optional, I used pecans (yum:)

1.  To begin get all ingredients for the apples ready so when your pancakes are cooking you can just throw everything on and everything will be ready at once.  Once you are prepped, start the pancakes by mixing all of the dry ingredients.  Then add the oil and water to the dry mixture and mix just until blended, don't over mix!  Cook the pancakes on a non-stick griddle on medium-high heat.  Pour about 1/4 cup of mixture on the pan per pancake, cook on one side until bubbles start to form on the top and then flip.

2.  While the pancakes are cooking start the apples.  Begin by heating a medium sauce pan.  Add butter and apples and saute for 3-5 minutes just until apples begin to soften.  Add the remaing ingredients to the apples and cook another 5 minutes just until apples are softened.

3.  Finish cooking all pancakes.  You can pile pancakes in an oven at 225 degrees to keep warm while other pancakes are cooking if you would like.  When all pancakes are done place 2-3 on a plate and top with the apple mixture and nuts.  In my opinion this recipe does not need any added butter or syrup since it is in the apples but it is up to you.  Yum yum!
