Directions

  1. SYRUP:.

  3. Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking, and cook until thickened, 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Set aside.

  6. Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and the remaining 1 tablespoon brown sugar in a small bowl. Whisk egg, egg white and buttermilk in a large bowl.
  7. Stir in the dry ingredients, apples and bacon until just combined. (The batter will be thick.).
  8. Brush a large nonstick skillet with 1/2 teaspoon oil and place over medium heat until hot.
