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.

This was one of the nicest pancake recipes I've made. I used some oil instead of the applesauce and butter in the pan for my hubby. I skipped the raisins and used pecan pieces. Thanks!

We loved these! My husband is not a fan of whole wheat pancakes but he gave these a big thumbs up. :-)These were just sweet enough and I loved the texure from the farina. I left out the raisins and I used pecans instead of walnuts and Splenda for the sugar. So yummy and healthy!
