This is my husband's wonderful recipe for pancakes. We often add chocolate chips or blueberries or a berry mix. Our kids love pancakes and like none more then the ones their dad makes!
- 4 egg whites
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 1⁄2 cups skim milk
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons applesauce
- 1 tablespoon safflower oil (or canola oil)
- 6 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- Beat the eggs until fluffy.
- Beat in remaining ingredients.
- Heat griddle or skillet to 375 degrees (medium heat).
- Pour 1/4 cup batter onto hot griddle.
- Cook both sides until golden brown.
great!!! i made two versions- one for me and one for Boyfriend. in my ultra healthy version i used all WW flour, no oil, extra applesauce...and they were prefect! topped with yogurt and applesauce- no syrup needed. my BF's version (he loved them and wanted more) i used all white flour, eggs w/ yolk- they were fluffy and just fantastic. and EASY! yay for this recipe.
We had these tonight for dinner with some eggs and bacon...fluffy and tasty with some light syrup. I think you can definitely tell that they are low fat/light pancakes, but there's not enough of a difference to make me not make them again. I'm going to freeze the rest and use them for super-fast breakfasts...thanks for posting!
We have made these pancakes several times now, with and without blueberries, and have enjoyed them very much every time. These are a great healthy alternative for people who enjoy a nice breakfast but are watching fat and calories, and they would be great even for those not watching what they eat. I used whole wheat pastry flour for the whole wheat flour, but I am sure regular whole wheat would be fine, too. For my husband and I cutting this in half makes the perfect amount! Thanks for sharing a great recipe that has allowed us to enjoy Sunday morning breakfast again!
