Pancakes with Cinnamon Apple Topping

I love pancakes. Unfortunately, making them from scratch takes time. Since I stick to a pretty strict morning routine to get some things done before work, I don’t usually have time to make pancakes for breakfast. Oatmeal or peanut butter toast are more my style.

So I usually make them for dinner. This is way more fun anyway. It feels like breaking all the adult rules for what you “have to” have for dinner. It feels like being a kid again.

Often when I whip up a batch of dinner pancakes, I opt for buckwheat pancakes (using this recipe). They’re super tasty, and buckwheat is seriously good for you, which dissipates some of the guilt of eating a sugary dinner.

Right now I have no buckwheat flour but tons of oatmeal, so I’ve been making these magical oatmeal pancakes.

Today I topped these pancakes with apples and cinnamon sauce (it’s somewhat caramel-y, but cinnamon flavored). With this topping, these pancakes don’t just taste like a fun dinner, they also taste like autumn.
