In a small bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Add in the eggs, buttermilk, and maple syrup and stir with a spatula until just combined. Add the apples, sausage crumbles, and walnuts.
Heat a pancake griddle over medium heat and grease with a small amount of butter.
