Taffy Apple Pancakes

I love making these for the kids (I also love the Finding Nemo plate this is served upon!) - and since apples are typically so plentiful and relatively inexpensive these are something I can make at any time of the year.  Taffy Apple Pancakes add apples and fun to breakfast while adding some fruit fiber and healthy fat/protein to the typical pancake. Depending on how much caramel versus how much syrup you use you may be saving on sugar and calories.  Regardless, you're uping the fun a great deal by calling these Taffy Apple Pancakes!

2 cups complete pancake mix
1 cup apple juice
1 regular sized apple, diced into small pieces


2 cups regular pancake mix
1 egg
1 cup apple juice
1 tbsp oil
1 regular sized apple, diced into small pieces

caramel ice cream topping
chopped peanuts

mix (but don't overmix) pancake flour thru diced apple.  Let sit for about 3 minutes before pouring onto hot griddle over med-low heat.  flip once after all of the bubbles pop.
remove from pan, wait 30 seconds or more, top with 1 tablespoon or so of caramel then 1 tablespoon or so of peanuts.  Serve immediately!  Enjoy!
