Healthy Applesauce Pancakes With No Sugar Added

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


  1. Sift flour, salt and baking powder into a medium mixing bowl.
  2. Combine butter, milk and egg.
  3. Stir into dry ingredients.
  4. Add vanilla (unless using flavored applesauce) and applesauce; beat well.
  5. Spoon batter into a hot, well greased griddle.

I created an account just to write this review. Don't waste your time. I wasted mine and my hungry baby's plus the ingredients. I cooked and cooked and cooked these and they stayed gooey in the middle. I even cut them into bite sized pieces and they still wouldn't cook!

These would not cook through - I even tried silver dollar size at a lower temp (which took forever) but still gooey and undercooked. All went in the trash. Very disappointing.

The center never cooked through. I tried the recipe as is and also added more milk to thin it out. Both efforts turned out goopy in the center.
