1/2 cup light coconut milk
3 eggs
3 tablespoons avocado oil

oil or ghee for pancake griddle


heat a pancake griddle to 325.

make the apple cinnamon maple syrup first.  in a small saucepan, melt the ghee over low heat.  add in maple syrup, coconut sugar & cinnamon & whisk until smooth.  add apples to the syrup & stir.  

turn the heat up slightly until the syrup begins to have a slow boil.  adjusting heat as necessary keep the mixture at a very low boil for 5 minutes, stirring often.  check apples to see if they are tender with still a bit of a bite to them.  if so, they are done.  if not, continue cooking at 1 minute increments, checking as you go.  

once the apples reach your desired softness, turn off heat & allow to sit while you make the pancakes.

to make the pancakes, add all the dry ingredients into a medium mixing bowl.  in a separate bowl, whisk together wet ingredients.  combine the two & whisk until smooth.

place a small amount of oil or ghee onto griddle & pour 1/8 cup of pancake batter on to griddle.  when it begins to bubble & look firm on the edges, flip the pancake & cook until both sides are evenly browned.
