apple cinnamon pancakes

This past week I was lucky enough to try NECTRESSE™Sweetener. To be honest I had never heard of Nectresse before. To me it kind of sounds like a hair product but that is so far from what it actually is. Nectresse is the only 100% natural no calorie sweetener that is made from real fruit. It is made from monk fruit extract. Yeah, I don’t know what monk fruit is either but I’m all for no calories and sweet. Apparently it is a type of melon. Who knew.

I taste tested straight Nectresse vs. sugar. To me Nectresse is less grainy and melts faster in the mouth than regular sugar. It is sweeter (150 times sweeter to be exact) than regular sugar, but has a slight after taste that I can’t describe. My husband called the taste sweet and low-ish while my son said he didn’t like the Nextresse side. Ah, what does he know. He likes Splenda just fine and I’m sure he wouldn’t notice the difference in a recipe.


To test that theory I used Nectresse instead of sugar in my apple cinnamon pancakes. And guess what!? He gobbled them up! I bet Nectresse would be great in my Apple Granola Streusel Muffins too.


  • 6 Nectresse sweetener packets
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 cup chopped apples


First I blended all of the dry ingredients in a bowl and made sure they were thoroughly blended. Then in a separate bowl I beat-ed together the eggs, melted butter, milk, and vanilla. Once that was whisked well I slowly added the dry ingredients. Make sure to blend toward the bottom of the bowl well because the dry ingredients can hide down there, sticking to the bowl. Don’t worry if all of the lumps aren’t going away. It gives the pancakes character. Now fold in the apples. I really chopped (practically pureeing them) up my apples using a chopper. My kids hate chunks in things, but you can chop the apples to the coarseness you like. Now continue like you would with any other pancake recipe. Yum!


I feel better with my kids eatting these pancakes because they get vitamins from the apples (I hear pears are great in this recipe too) and of course the no calories from Nectresse. Have you tried Nectresse before? If you haven’t tried Nectresse before you can get a FREE sample of NECTRESSE™Sweetener on their website.

  1. I like the sound of this recipe I am diabetic and it really sounds like something I would like I do like my pancakes……

    • My kids of course like regular pancakes better than these but I like the fact that they get fruit with these too. They still eat them of course. They can’t resist syrup.

  2. I have never heard of Nectresse either. It sounds interesting and may be worth a try. I am a Stevia fan so this may be as good. 🙂
