Hearty Grains Pancakes

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Barb G.

These are healthy pancakes, applesauce takes the place of oil. Whole wheat flour, cream of wheat, golden raisins and walnuts adds lots of fiber. The recipe comes from Cooking Light.

These pancakes are delicious! I wanted to use some farina I had on hand, and this recipe is perfect for that. I used pecans instead of walnuts and added 1 tsp. vanilla and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon to the batter. I used a mixture of butter/oil instead of applesauce. Thanks for this wonderful recipe.
