Earl Grey Apple Spice Pancakes Recipe

These easy-to-make pancakes require just 9 ingredients, including the sautéed apple topping!  Each bite has bergamot notes with earl grey tea blended right into the batter! 

Earl grey tea is perfect for cozy fall days. It has a deep flavor with aromatic bergamot in every sip. The earl grey tea crystals in this recipe require no steeping and are blended into the batter along with the other ingredients. This variety is made from black tea leaves; ideal for supporting a healthy gut microbiome. 

Because earl grey contains caffeine, these pancakes are perfect for morning breakfast to start the day alert and energized, but not jittery. 

During autumn, apples are in peak season with a wide variety to choose from. Tangy green Granny Smith, honey crisp, Fuji, or pink lady apples are all wonderful options that will add baked apple flavor to your pancakes. 

Almond flour, eggs, almond milk, and baking powder create a fluffy pancake that holds up to being flipped and topping with maple syrup. Almond flour is an excellent substitute for processed flour and adds satiating fats and protein to the pancakes. Tiger nut flour can be used instead of almond flour for anyone with nut sensitivities. Tiger nut is actually a root and not a nut at all. Instead of using multiple mixing bowls, the ingredients are added to a blender and mixed until smooth. 

Once your pancakes are piled high, apples are sautéed with butter, maple syrup, and cinnamon until tender and saucy. Spoon apples onto pancakes and enjoy right away for the best flavor. Vegan butter or ghee can be used in place of traditional butter.
