Quick Apple Cider Pancakes

Here is a pancake recipe that is quick and easy to make! You can easily substitute the gluten-free flour with whole wheat flour if you like, and unsweetened apple juice works great in place of cider if you don’t have any on hand.

I was quite surprised by how well these pancakes turned out! Most of the gluten-free, whole grain pancakes I make usually end up doughy or wet inside, so I know that some of my ratios are off. Although these are a bit dense because they are whole grain, these cook through in the middle. They are not overly sweet, but they have plenty of delicious apple cinnamon flavor!  You can top these with warm apple butter, chopped nuts, maple syrup, apple pie filling, or anything you wish!
