These are like having a slice of apple pie for breakfast except healthier. These are great spread with apple butter or topped with glazed apples.

- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 3⁄4 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 2 egg whites
- 1 cup skim milk
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- In a large bowl, combine the oatmeal, flour, baking powder and spices, mixing well.
- In a separate bowl, combine the remaining ingredients.
- Beat with a wire whisk until blended.
- Add to dry mixture, mixing until all ingredients are moistened.
- Let stand 5 minutes, then mix again.
- Spray griddle with non-stick cooking spray and preheat over medium heat.
- Using 2 tablespoonfuls for each pancake, drop batter onto griddle.

- Note: If the batter becomes too thick while standing, add a tablespoon or more of skim milk.
- Serve with favorite toppings.
These came out great! Healthy, tasty and easy. I used my own apple puree which was pretty thick so I needed to use more milk, but other than that followed the recipe exactly. Thanks for posting.
Both of my kids (and I) love these pancakes. I make them the smaller size as recommended by the recipe. They are good with unsweetened apple sauce on top followed by real maple syrup.
Loved these healthy, tasty pancakes! These pancakes prove that healthy foods don't have to be tasteless. The spices were spot on and the texture was perfect. I used whole eggs instead of egg whites, mainly because I was too lazy to separate them. Also, I used about 1/4 cup batter for each pancake and I got 12 pancakes. I served these pancakes topped with sauteed cinnamon apples...yum!! Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe...it is definitely a keeper! **Made for Culinary Quest - Suitcase Gourmets**
