Apple and Nutmeg Pancakes

Recipe created by @whatchewlookingat

This autumnal pancake recipe is perfect for cosy weekend brunches or as a weekday pick me up. Refined-sugar free and packed with fruit, it’s a delicious way to get a nutritious boost during the chillier months.

A generous drizzle of the ultra-low glycaemic YaconViva! Yacon Syrup will keep your blood sugar steady and ensure you are satisfied until lunch.

Ingredients to serve one

 For the pancakes:
  • 2 cups of oats
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 cups oat milk
  • Half a finely chopped/grated apple
 For the compote
  • 1 peeled and chopped apple
  • 1 tsp YaconViva Yacon Syrup
  • 2 tbsp water
 For the toppings
  • 6-8 fresh blackberries
  • A handful of your favourite granola


  1. Firstly, blitz the oats with a hand whisk / food processor to make oat flour.
  2. Blend the flour with the egg, baking powder and oat milk until smooth, adding more oat milk if needed.
  3. Add the finely chopped apple to the mixture, and set-aside for now.
  4. To make the compote, chop and peel the apple. Add it to a pan with the YaconViva Yacon Syrup and 2 tablespoons of water and cook on a low heat until the apple is softened (around 10 - 15 minutes). Add a drizzle of water every time the water has evaporated until the apple is soft.
  5. Cook the pancakes in a large frying pan at a medium heat and stack on top of each other.
  6. Serve piled high, with the apple compote on top, fresh blackberries, nutmeg, granola, and a generous drizzle of YaconViva Yacon Syrup. Enjoy!
