As much as I love having a morning routine, sometimes breakfast can just feel blah and I can get bored of making the same thing every day. Don’t get me wrong, if it’s a busy morning, my go to’s are simple and easy to know exactly what I’m eating but if I ever have a little more time and want to shake it up a little bit, this is my new favorite.

These apple protein pancakes are such a fun twist on incorporating fruit into breakfast and using pancake batter in a new way. Cutting your apple length wise and taking out the core makes them the perfect dippable slice into your favorite pancake batter leaving you with a sweet apple stuffed pancake once you fry them. I love using Kodiak Cakes Protein Pancake Mix to get a little extra protein in this dish but feel free to use what ever pancake batter you want!

Let me know if you try it and like it!

Apple Protein Pancakes


  • 1 honey crisp apple
  • Cinnamon
  • 1 serving of pancake batter (I used @kodiakcakes for extra protein)
  • Almond or peanut butter


  1. Slice apple horizontally across the core in 1/2 inch slices.
  2. Using a small circle cookie cutter or a straw, punch out the cores, so you have thick apple donut slices.
  3. Sprinkle each apple slice with cinnamon.
  4. Make the pancake batter according to package and dip each apple slice into the batter coating both sides.
  5. Fry in a medium high skillet and flip when golden brown.
  6. Drizzle with almond or peanut butter and enjoy!
