Homemade apple pancakes are the perfect way to celebrate FALL!. I love this recipe on a crisp fall morning after we have gone apple picking. There is nothing better than the flavor combination of pumpkin pie spice with the apples. The homemade syrup is amazing or feel free to use traditional maple syrup.
In addition I like to garnish with walnuts (or nut of your choice) and some powered sugar. Trust me that this is the perfect breakfast or brunch recipe on a fall day. I hope you enjoy these homemade apple pancakes as much as we do. Best of all they can easily be made gluten free when you use gluten free bisquick. Enjoy!
