I made these for breakfast when we had company at Thanksgiving. I got the idea for them from Green Lite Bites, a blog I found about when James directed me to read an article about the lady who writes the blog that was on CNN’s website a little while back. Of course, I couldn’t make purely whole wheat pancakes if I wanted James to enjoy them. As it was, he thought they were just okay. I thought they were pretty good, even as leftovers a couple days later.
- 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup skim milk
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
In medium bowl, whisk together applesauce, egg and milk. In smaller bowl, add the flour, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon. Sift into apple mixture; mix until just blended.
Heat a skillet over medium heat. Spray with non-stick cooking spray. Using about 1/4 cup of batter, form pancakes. Cook about 1-2 minutes per side (small bubbles will form but not as many as traditional pancakes).
Yield: approximately 6 (16-18 3-inch pancakes)
Of course, my flipping skills need work.
