Puffy Dutch Pancake w Caramelized Apples

If you haven't tried Dutch Pancakes you are totally in for a treat! These EASY, hands-free, oven baked pancakes cook up light and puffy right in a skillet - no flipping required. My version features yummy, gooey, caramelized cinnamon apples that cook right in the same pan (so you can even skip the syrup if you're watching sugars).
Just WW 8 on Green & 6 on Blue or Purple plans.
