Whole Wheat Pancakes with Walnuts and Apples

1 tsp butter
pinch sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 granny smith apples, sliced (skinned too, if you prefer)

1 cup whole wheat flour
2/3 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup wheat germ
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1/2 cup walnuts, finely chopped
6 Tbsp butter
2 1/2 cup buttermilk
2 eggs, beaten
You can also add a scoop or two of unflavored protein powder if you would like

Melt 1 Tbsp of butter in a sauce pan and add sliced apples, sprinkle with a pinch of sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg, and sautee, stirring frequently, until softened.

Mix the dry ingredients for the pancakes in one bowl.

Melt 6 Tbsp butter and mix with buttermilk and beaten eggs. Pour into the dry ingredients stirring constantly until the mixture is consistent. Stir in the walnuts.

Heat and grease a griddle with some butter or cooking spray and pour 1/2 cup amounts of batter onto the griddle. Cooking until bubbles form all over the pancake, flip and cook a minute longer.

Serve with apples and warm syrup.
