Apple Spice Pancakes with Apple Compote

This past January, Kel and I spent a week in a beautiful beach house in Port Aransas, TX. Our road trip included an overnight in Waco, TX, and I extracted a promise from Kel that either on the way down south or the way back up north that we would visit Chip and Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia Market at the Silos. While I’m not a huge fan of the country-shabby-chic look on which Joanna made her name, I am an admirer of their work ethic, their loyalty to their hometown and the jobs and opportunities they’ve created for their community, and most especially the obvious love and affection they have for each other and their kids. My primary reason for wanting to make a pitstop at the Silos, however, was to indulge in a cupcake from the bakery. Imagine my disappointment when we were told that there were gluten-free options but nothing plant-based. Sure, it saved me some calories, but my tastebuds were crushed!

Once back home I picked up a copy of their magazine, Magnolia, and immediately gravitated to a pancake recipe inside. I tweaked it to make it plant-based and Kel and I love the pancakes so much, we eat them once a week. They cook up thick and fluffy and have a lovely light sour flavor that is the perfect complement to the sweet apples and homey cinnamon. I’ve created a simple, healthy apple compote to go along with the pancakes, but of course, real maple syrup would be fantastic, too. Another topping idea is my sugar-free Apple Butter made in the pressure cooker.
