Sundays are for Big Breakfast

IDK about you but something about Sundays gets me wanting a yummy LARGE breakfast. The kind of stuff I wouldn't normally eat throughout the week because I just have time. I started scouring the internet and found these delicious Apple Cinnamon pancakes on the Team Beachbody blog. It's like apple pie for breakfast! And even though I actually don't like apple pie (because of the consistency)... I like apple pie LIKE things... if that makes sense.

Here it is reprinted for you. OMG SO GOOD!! Healthy and Gluten-free. No need for lots of syrup either. They are moist and when you top them with the apple slices, way sweeter as well.
