It’s pancake day!

I don’t usually eat pancakes this often I swear, but I’m kind of playing a little game with myself to see how many different seasonal iterations I can come up with.

Here are all the pancake Sunday creations:

This time around I did apples and spice.

Sweet potato and butternut squash did enter my mind but in the end I was craving something a bit sweeter and fruit forward.

Try these sweet potato chocolate chip pancakes if the sound of that interests you though!

Simple spiced Apple pancakes make a delicious fall breakfast.

It’s almost like a lazy man’s apple crisp.

With softened apples, brown sugar and cinnamon in and on top of the pancakes, the two are eerily similar in taste.

The pancakes themselves aren’t super sweet, more spice-like, because the topping takes care of that.

I also knew I’d be drizzling maple syrup on top so I kept things in check with the sweetness of these pancakes. If you want all out decadence for pancakes try peanut butter chocolate chip pancakes – those things are like dessert!

These apple spiced pancakes epitomize fall, a delicious and easy seasonal breakfast.

The house smelled like cider donuts when these were cooking and that was through my congested head cold nose.

If that’s not impetus enough to make them, I don’t really know what else to say.

They’re also a simple pancake with simple ingredients.

I love these apple carrot cake pancakes too but they’re a bit more work. If you’re looking for quick and easy but full of apple flavor, give these apple spice pancakes a try.

Cinnamon Apple Pancakes are the perfect way to start a fall day.

And don’t forget to try my perfect protein pancakes. You can’t beat the 30g of protein in that stack!

Enjoy your Sunday!
