Hearty Apple and Oat Campfire Pancakes

Updated: Aug 11, 2023

Anyone who knows me knows that I prefer savory to sweet. Give me a cheese board over a slice of cake for dessert any day.

Every once in a while, however, I get a hankering for a good sweet weekend breakfast. This is particularly true when I am camping. I mean, come on, it's impossible not to crave a stack of warm, fluffy pancakes while you're sipping on some campfire coffee on a chilly morning in the mountains, like our recent trip to the Sequoia National Forest.

Apple and Oat Campfire Pancakes

(Makes 4 servings)


  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour

  • 1/2 cup All Purpose flour

  • 3/4 cup rolled oats

  • 1/4 cup almond flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1 large egg

  • 2 cups buttermilk

  • 1 medium apple

  • Maple syrup, for serving

  • Butter, for serving

  • Coconut oil for skillet


  • At home: Mix together dry ingredients and store in a plastic bag.

  • At camp: Cut apple into slices about 1/4-inch thick. Preheat your griddle, either over the campfire or on your camp stove. In a medium bowl, lightly beat your egg and buttermilk. Add dry ingredients and mix until just incorporated. Melt some coconut oil on the griddle and arrange apple slices on griddle in small-ish groups of 3-4 slices. Spoon batter over the apple slices, spreading the batter to cover the apples if necessary. Cook pancakes until the bottom is golden brown and bubbles form on the surface. Flip and cook until cooked through and golden brown on the other side. Serve pancakes with butter and maple syrup... and some campfire coffee, of course.

Now who's ready for breakfast?
