  • 100 g Apple peeled and diced (I used Fuji)
  • 2 Tbsp (30g) Walden Farms Pancake Syrup or sugar free pancake syrup
  • 1 Tbsp (14g) Light Butter I used Land O' Lakes
  • 1 Tbsp (5g) Quick Oats
  • 1 Tbsp (8g) Graham Cracker Crumbs
  • 1/4 tsp Apple Pie Spice or cinnamon on its own


  1. Peel and dice a small to medium apple before adding to a mug with the pancake syrup. Stir well. (You can leave the peel on the apple if you'd like.)

Recipe Notes

  • If you don't have access to graham cracker crumbs, you can omit, use flour, crushed cereal or sweet crackers, or try swapping chopped nuts like in my apple crisp pie recipe.
