Quick and Easy Apple Mini Pancakes

These apple mini pancakes are a delightful treat that combines the sweetness of apples with the tanginess of yogurt, creating a deliciously sweet snack or breakfast option in just 5 minutes. Perfect for when you’re craving something sweet but simple to make. The addition of lemon zest and cinnamon brings a fresh and warming flavor that’s hard to resist. Here’s how to whip them up quickly.


  • 150 g of white yogurt: The base of your pancake batter, adding moisture and a slight tanginess.
  • 140 grams of flour: Provides structure to the pancakes, making them fluffy and soft.
  • 15g stevia sweetener (or alternatively 30g normal sugar): Sweetens the pancakes. Use stevia for a lower-calorie option or sugar for a classic taste.
  • 1 apple: Peeled and grated, adds sweetness, moisture, and a lovely texture to the pancakes.
  • 1 egg: Binds the ingredients together, ensuring your pancakes don’t fall apart.
  • 1 grated lemon zest: Adds a bright, citrusy note that complements the sweetness of the apple and sugar.
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder: Helps the pancakes rise and become fluffy.
  • Enough cinnamon: To taste, for a warm, spicy flavor that pairs wonderfully with apple.
  • A drizzle of oil for frying: Ensures your pancakes cook evenly and turn golden brown.
  • Enough icing sugar (optional): For dusting on top of the pancakes before serving for extra sweetness.

  1. Prepare the Pancake Batter:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the white yogurt, flour, stevia sweetener (or sugar), grated apple, egg, grated lemon zest, baking powder, and a generous pinch of cinnamon. Mix until you have a smooth, consistent batter.
  2. Cook the Pancakes:
    • Heat a drizzle of oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat.
    • Once the oil is hot, spoon small amounts of the batter into the pan to form mini pancakes. Cook in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan.
    • Fry for about 1-2 minutes on each side or until golden brown and cooked through. The pancakes should be easy to flip and firm up nicely.
  3. Serve:
    • Transfer the cooked mini pancakes to a serving plate. If desired, dust with icing sugar and an extra sprinkle of cinnamon for added sweetness and flavor.


  • Apple Variety: Choose a sweet apple variety like Gala or Fuji for the best flavor.
  • Serving Suggestions: These mini pancakes are delicious on their own or served with a dollop of extra yogurt, a drizzle of honey, or your favorite pancake toppings.
  • Keep Them Warm: If you’re making a large batch, keep the cooked pancakes warm in a low oven until you’re ready to serve.

Enjoy these quick and easy apple mini pancakes as a delightful start to your day or as a sweet treat anytime you need a quick dessert fix. They’re sure to satisfy your sweet tooth!
