These "pancakes" are most certainly Pinterest inspired and they turned out simply delicious.  They are basically a sweet red apple slice battered in yummy pancake batter.  

This is what you'll need:
Favorite Buttermilk Pancake mix (you could make your own)
Water or Milk for pancake mix
1 tsp Ground cinnamon
2-3 Medium sweet red apples (I used Sonya)
Makes: 18-20 pancakes

Start by slicing the apples thin enough to batter but thick enough to stand up to cooking, about 1/4 inch thick.  Depending on how large your apples are you may need more or less than 2, but you can always slice more as the batter gets used.  You can core the slices if you choose, but at the very least make sure you pop out the seeds.
Next, you will want to place the stack of apples on a microwave safe dish and microwave for a minute and a half.  This step ensures that the apple will not be completely raw in the middle of the batter.  While the apples are microwaving start to mix your batter.  I am usually not a fan of the prepackaged mix, but this one is really tasty and I needed to use up the last of the box.  Be sure to spike the pancake batter with cinnamon while mixing.  I also like to slightly thin the batter with additional almond milk so that the apples do not get too gooey but have a thin layer of batter instead.
Once you have mixed your batter and microwaved your apples, dip an apple slice in the batter then place on a griddle or skillet.  I chose to add the tiniest bit of butter to my skillet, but you could of course use cooking spray.  Make sure your pan is on medium to medium low heat.  You will know when the skillet is the right temperature because the batter will start to bubble up around the edge and puff like the picture above.
Cook each side until golden brown and then ENJOY.  These little cuties are so sweet you won't even need syrup.
