Apple Pie Pancake Muffins

Let’s add some of the fall mania to our love for pancakes.

These are soft, squishy little bites that are reminiscent of the fluffiest pancakes. Filled with fresh chopped apples, brown sugar, apple pie spice, and just a hint of lemon juice for that tiny bit of tartness, Apple Pie Pancake Muffins taste exactly like a big stack of … apple pie pancakes?

Apple Pie Pancake Muffins mix up just like pancake batter, but have delicious apple pie filling folded right in. Drizzled with glaze or syrup, these sweet little treats are sure to be a hit.

You can NEVER go wrong with pastries and coffee…Right?

Well, here’s the thing: making your own pastries from scratch is no big deal. It seems complicated but it’s really not. So don’t be freaked out by the length of time it will take. There’s really not much active time involved, just plenty of rising and waiting. It’s perfect for one of those lazy mornings when you just want to hang out reading the paper in your PJs and fluffy slippers. And the best part is these will last, stored in an airtight container, for 4-6 days. So go ahead, pour a cup of coffee. Enjoy.

Granola Baked Apples

Baked apples are incredible for breakfast. There, alongside a stack of pancakes, their cozy, wrinkly exterior and elemental sweetness taste right at home.

During Rosh Hashanah, when apples are at their seasonal and symbolic peaks, they are even better. Most importantly for hurried weekday mornings, or leisurely holiday ones, baked apples’ flavor intensifies overnight in the fridge and they are delicious cold or at room temperature, which makes them the perfect make-ahead breakfast or brunch dish.

You can serve baked apples with yogurt, because that’s what you are supposed to do at breakfast time. Or, serve them with ice cream because you’re an adult, and you can à la mode any time you want. Either way, it will get your morning, and the Jewish New Year, off to a very sweet start.

Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

I know. I know. Chocolate AND zucchini…TOGETHER?? Well, Yes. You are just gonna have to trust us. This recipe is delicious. But if I was serving them to the kiddies I wouldn’t mention the “z” word.

And an added bonus – The only fat in these muffins are from yogurt and eggs, so enjoy with abandon for breakfast or a snack!

Blueberry Alpine Pancakes

So rustic, so delicious—we’re huge fans of the entire Dutch Baby movement, or “Puff Pancakes,” as we sometimes like to call them. Here, fresh blueberries stand out against stark white batter, just begging to be scooped up and plopped on a skillet— but not before a final squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
