My favorite pancakes

Dice up honeycrisp apples to really small chunks. Get pancake mix, put in 1/4 TSP sugar, 1/4 TSP ground cinnamon, a pinch of nutmeg, and a splash of vanilla extract. Use coconut oil cooking spray on the pan. Pour 1/4 cup batter into the pan (medium-low heat) and sprinkle six to eight pieces of diced apple into it. Use a knife to push the apple under the surface. Wait until the bubbles stop popping and flip it. Cook only one at a time, so it has the pan to itself and your full attention. Drizel with maple syrup and no-sugar-added applesauce (homemade lumpy with skins is best).

It helps of you have a sweet tooth, since Apple's and maple syrup are both loaded with sugar. If I'm hungry and think I want to hear more than two, I don't add the sugar to the mix, and I use even less maple syrup.

You have to play with the apple chunk size, too. I dice the pieces to less than 1/4", and it's a balancing act what kind of texture and how much apple flavor you want.
