While basic pancakes are already amazing morning treat, we thought of a way to make them even better— infusing them with tea! For this recipe we chose to go with our oolong blend, Apple Strudel. The rich flavor of baked apple, nutty hazelnut, and dark oolong with nice hints of chocolate and cinnamon mixes perfectly with the warm comforting taste of a pancake. This heavenly, fluffy flapjack pairs perfectly with sweet syrup and creamy butter and is the ultimate breakfast treat. Seriously, what's not to love?! This Apple Strudel Pancake Recipe may sound challenging, but I promise it is super easy. While we use Apple Strudel in this recipe feel free to experiment with other Tea Sip blends and let us know how it goes! 

We made this pancake recipe gluten free, vegetarian, and dairy free.
