Upside-Down Apple Pancakes: A Nutritious Twist on Breakfast!

Upside Down Apple pancakes

Can pancakes really be part of a balanced breakfast? Absolutely!

In less than 30 minutes, whip up a delicious morning treat for the whole family. These upside-down apple pancakes add a delightful and filling twist to your breakfast routine.

Why Choose Apples?

Not only do apples add a touch of sweetness to your pancakes, but they also pack a nutritional punch. Apples are known for their filling nature and rank high on the "Satiety Index," making them more satisfying than other foods like bananas and yogurt.

Beyond their satiating power, apples offer numerous health benefits. They can help regulate blood sugar, support heart health, and boost brain function. Plus, for those focusing on weight management, apples are low in calories, high in water content, and rich in fibre, promoting a sense of fullness and aiding appetite control.

Hot tip: This recipe makes two large pancakes, so we suggest you double the mixture for a family of four. You can also make mini-pancakes for bite-sized delights; use one or two apple slices per pancake!


  • 1/2 apple, sliced

  • 1 egg

  • 60g quick oats

  • 30g brown rice flour

  • 30 ml soy milk

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • Cinnamon (to taste)


  1. Mix eggs, oats, and brown rice flour in a bowl with a fork. 

  2. Gradually add soy milk until the mixture is moist. 

  3. Stir in baking powder.

  4. In a non-stick frying pan, sauté the apple slices with cinnamon until they soften.

  5. Pour the oat mixture over the apples in the pan.

  6. Cook on medium to high heat until golden brown. Cover the pan with a lid to ensure even cooking.

  7. Carefully flip the pancake/s over and cook for another minute or two.
