Preparation

In a small saucepan, over medium heat bring apples, maple syrup and cinnamon to a simmer. Reduce heat and cook until apples are tender, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve warm compote warm over pancakes or waffles, or serve chilled over granola with yogurt.

In a large bowl combine whole wheat flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, egg, maple syrup, melted butter and lemon juice; pour over dry ingredients. Stir gently just until combined. (A few lumps are OK).

In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, melt a thin layer of butter. Scoop about 1/4 cup (60 ml) batter per pancake into skillet. Cook until surface of pancake dulls and bottom is golden brown, about 3 minutes. Flip pancakes and cook for 1 to 2 minutes longer or until golden and puffed; remove to a plate. Keep pancakes covered and warm in 200 °F (100 °C) oven. Repeat with remaining batter, adjusting heat as necessary to prevent burning.

Serve pancakes with warm apple compote and a dollop of plain yogurt.
