APPLE PIE PANCAKES

When I make apple pie, the boyfriend has a tendency to try to sneak some for breakfast. And usually, he is successful. So instead of him sneaking dessert for breakfast, I came up with this rendition of his favorite dessert that really does taste like apple pie. The tart granny smith apples mix with the cinnamon and brown sugar for a great pie flavor.
