Apple Pie Pancakes !

In my daily reading of blogs (I know, I need to get a life!), I ran across a nice site entitled Melissa's Journey. Now Melissa is not a WLS patient. She is just someone trying to lose a few pounds as well as keep them off.

While reading, I found a nice, easy dessert to make...Apple Pie Enchilada. So I made the apples last night, but fell asleep before we could get them made. So that recipe will be coming soon!

We awoke early this morning and decided to make some breakfast. I asked Beth if she would like some cottage cheese pancakes. While making the pancakes, I had an idea (yes that was smoke a pouring out my ears!). What if I used the apples for a topping for the pancakes?

So, wha-la...Apple Pie Pancakes!

Apple Topping
1 Apple~cored, peeled and chopped
A dash of Cinnamon
Splenda~Sweeten to taste
A Splash of DaVinci Sugar Free Caramel Syrup

1)Put peeled, cored, and chopped apple in a bowl and toss with Cinnamon and Splenda (if desired).
2)Microwave for 3 minutes, or until soft.
3) Too easy!

Cottage Cheese Pancakes
¼ cup cottage cheese
2 Tablespoons oatmeal
1 egg
1 packet of Splenda
Splash of Cinn-a-bliss (pinch of cinnamon may be substituted)

1) Grind oatmeal in blender/magic bullet
2) Add cottage cheese, egg, and Splenda, and Cinn-a-Bliss
3) Mix thoroughly in blender/magic bullet
4) Let sit for several minutes for air bubbles to escape

Makes 4 silver dollar pancakes or 1 large pancake.

I too stumbled acrossed your pancake recipe and thought I had all the ingredients so had to think on my feet so I used apple sauce instead. I am sure the other way was tastier! By the way where do you get the caramel syrup?
