This recipe has a bit of a convoluted history! It was originally posted by a poster who left, and then was put up for "adoption." Since I'd made it before and loved it, I took it on as my own! I did change a few things when I made it; I had some apples to use up, so I cored nd sliced them and when I poured the batter on the griddle, I arranged the apple slices decoratively on top. That way, when I flipped the pancake, the slices got cooked into the pancake. It was yummy and added even more fiber and vitamins! Anyway, here's the original poster's description: Healthy pancakes to get you going in the morning. They aren't very sweet, so add some sugar or honey if you like your pancakes sweet. I like to eat these topped with plain yogurt and a bit of syrup. Freezes well.
- 1⁄2 cup buckwheat flour
- 1⁄2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1⁄2 tablespoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon (I prefer without) (optional)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 egg white, beaten
- 1⁄4 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1 cup water
- Mix together dry ingredients.
- Add liquids and combine, mixing as little as possible.
- Do not overmix.
- Fry in hot nonstick frying pan, turning once.
"Hooray" for a recipe without that darn white flour! I've been looking for recipes using more healthful whole wheat. This is the perfect recipe for my husband, who is on a diet, but just loves his carbs! He wolfed these down!! Very easy to throw together in the morning and I have some in the freezer for an easy breakfast another day! I did not add cinnamon but did add maybe 1/4 cup instant nonfat dry milk powder to the mix and a bit more water. They turned out perfectly. Thanks, Cornelia, for a breakfast we will be having often.
Yum! I added some Splenda to the batter, and topped with sugar-free blueberry syrup.
These were very nice pancakes - nice thickness and texture. I doubled the recipe. The only change I made was add about 1/8 cup milk powder to the water. Next time I would like to try them as is, with just the water, and the apples and oats on top which looks delicious. Thanks!!
