In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg; stir in quinoa.
In another bowl or large measuring cup, whisk together eggs, oil, milk, and syrup. Add egg mixture to flour mixture and stir to combine. Fold in chopped apples.
Heat nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Pour batter by approximately 1/4 cup portions onto hot skillet. Cook for 4 minutes (or until bubbles form and stay), flip, and cook for 3-4 more minutes or until golden brown.
Serve with cinnamon apple compote, butter, applesauce, cinnamon sugar, or maple syrup.
I used a combination of apples: Honeycrisp and Gala. Other varieties that would work well are Jonagold, Jonathan, Braeburn, Granny Smith, or Cortland.
For this recipe, you want an apple that stays firm when cooked.
