With a fork, blend together eggs, water, vanilla and honey.
Mix in almond flour, pinch of salt and baking soda until well combined
Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat.
Use a spoon to scoop heaping tablespoons of batter into the skillet to make pancakes.
When pancakes show little bubbles all around, flip pancakes over and cook other side and remove when browned on both sides.
Repeat process with remaining batter.
Mix apples and ingredients thoroughly in large pot.
Cook on medium high heat, covered, until soft.
Stir regularly. You may add a pat of butter if needed.
Serve over warm pancakes.
