Gluten Free Apple Pie Pancakes

 
  My Sister was visiting last week; she is currently gluten free, dairy free and sugar free. I wanted to make her something yummy for breakfast so I modified these pancakes to fit her diet.  They turned out great and don't even need butter or syrup.  (Although a bit of butter and real maple syrup dose make them extra good).  I have made these a few times before and have found they can be packed in a lunch and are Ok cold too.    
  My Grandma was the queen of pie making, and apple was her specialty.  As a girl I remember watching her peel apples for pie, so impressed by her ability to peel an apple in one continuous strip.   Maybe it is easy to impress a seven year old but to this day I often think of her when I peel apples.
