    Just made this and my toddlers gobbled it up. One said “mommy it taste like apple pie” ;-). I made a few changes. In the interest of time i used a store bought pancake mix to which i added cinnamon,nutmeg,pumpkin pie spice and vanilla. Instead of water i used almond milk. I also added cinnamon to the apples while it was cooking for extra flavor & used unsalted butter. I omitted the nuts. It pairs well with bacon and scrambled eggs.Will def make again. Yummy!
