Healthy Weekend: Apple Fritter Pancakes

In most restaurants, apple pancakes are just plain pancakes covered in gooey sugary apple.  Not these!  Built-in apple is the way to go. And with the chia seeds, and high quality grains, these will make you feel GOOD.  As all food should. And the syrup?  Makes the whole thing tastes like a candy apple!  Except that it’s not overly sweet, and won’t get stuck in your teeth! Also, the flax oil will give you an awesome dose of omega 3’s, as do the chia seeds. Try not to fall in love too hard!
