Upside Down Apple Skillet Pancake

Switch up your classic pancakes with this simple Upside Down Skillet Pancake made with fresh apples. Top with a drizzle of syrup, yogurt, and fresh fruit for a breakfast the whole family will love.

You can never go wrong with whipping up some quick pancakes. However, it’s time to switch up your classic pancakes with this simple recipe. When the holiday season rolls around, this is definitely the kind of breakfast you want to sit down with your family for.

Nutrition Tip: Apples are an especially filling fruit, ranking high on something called the “Satiety Index”. They’re even more filling than foods like bananas and yogurt!

When it comes to selecting your apples, it’s all preference. Go for green if you want to eliminate some of the sweetness. We also recommend using whole grain pancake mix for extra nutrients.

Pairing this treat with a side of eggs and turkey sausage for a fulfilling breakfast. Don’t forget some freshly squeezed orange juice for that morning rush of vitamin C.
