Wonderful, healthier pancake for me!!! I made this but scaled back for 1/2 of the amounts. I agree with another reviewer, they do burn easier, I think because of the added sugar. They rose so nicely and I couldn't believe it was with no added fat!!! Next time, and there will be many, I will omit the sugar completely, as I serve mine with fresh sliced strawberries or maple syrup, so that sweetens them plenty. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for Holiday Tag Game.

Great pancakes! So light and fluffy and I liked the addition of the brown sugar. I made half of the recipe and used some of the applesauce, warmed and mixed with just a little syrup, as a topping for the pancakes. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
