These pancakes freeze very well! Make them small for toddlers to hold or larger for the rest of the family. I like to use flavored (blueberry, strawberry, etc) applesauce without any added sugar. If you use a flavored applesauce, you may omit the vanilla flavoring. The flavors are great so that there is no need for syrup! This recipe is adapted from

These were perfect! Simple, delicious, fluffy, sweet, and a little bit crunchy if you cook them in a bit of coconut oil. Exactly the sugar-free option I was looking for with my 15-month old toddler, and I have been trying recipes for months! I've made this three times now and they are moist, but I have never had them be gooey in the middle as others complained. I only make half batches at a time though, and still use a full egg. Maybe using two eggs in the full recipe would prevent that problem?
