Baked Apple Streusel Pancake Bars

Baked Apple Streusel Pancake Bars
Serves 20

Pancake ingredients:
  • 2 3/4 cups soy milk, plain or vanilla
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons refined sugar
  • 1/2 cup soy yogurt, plain or vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons vegan butter substitute, melted
  • 1 Gala apple, diced
  • 2 cups vegan granola, any flavor (I used maple cinnamon)

Streusel ingredients:
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons vegan butter substitute, melted
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  2. Grease a 9x13" pan. You can also line the pan with parchment paper.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together the soy milk and distilled white vinegar. 
  4. Set aside so it can transform itself into "buttermilk" while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
  5. In a large bowl, whisk together the all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, sea salt and refined sugar.
  6. In a separate bowl, stir together the yogurt and melted vegan butter.
  7. Add the yogurt and butter mixture and the "buttermilk" to the dry ingredients and stir. 
  8. Stir in the apples and granola. 
  9. Pour the pancake batter into the pan. 
  10. Stir all of the streusel ingredients together
  11. Drizzle the streusel over top of the pancake batter. I drizzled mine in kind of a clumpy formation, and then used a fork to lightly spread the streusel around. 
  12. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until the top of the pancake springs back when you press it. 
  13. Allow the pancake to cool on a wire rack. 
  14. Slice the pancake into bars.

You can also dig into it immediately either as is or with maple syrup, apple butter, etc. Or you can store them to devour throughout the week.  
The Kitchn also recommends freezing the bars individually for a quick breakfast or snack in the future.
