Apple season is just around the corner! Next time I'm making a big breakfast, I'm going to try this recipe:

Grain-Free Apple Pancake Rings

2 medium apples, sliced thin and cored
3 eggs from pastured hens
3 Tbs. coconut oil or melted butter from grass-fed cows, plus extra for cooking the pancake
3 Tbs milk or coconut milk
1 tsp. raw honey
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
3 Tbs. coconut flour

In a mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, coconut oil, milk, honey, cinnamon, and salt. Once evenly mixed, whisk in coconut flour. Stir until evenly mixed, then let sit for 5 minutes.

Heat a griddle or cast iron skillet to medium heat. Melt a dab of coconut oil on your cooking surface. While that’s heating and your batter is resting (an essential step when working with coconut flour), this is a good time to peel, slice, and core your apples if you haven’t already.

Using a toothpick, pick up an apple ring and dunk it in the pancake batter. Then, put it on the griddle. Repeat for as many apple pancake rings as you’ve got room to cook. Once the batter has cooked firm around the edges and turned golden brown, flip once to cook the other side to golden brown.

When finished, serve apple pancake rings warm. We love serving it up with slices of cheese or with sorghum syrup.

So are the apples still crunchy after frying them like this?
