Whole Grain Brown Sugar-Cinnamon Pancakes

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by SarahBeth

From eatbetteramerica.com! These are very filling! Posting as written but sometimes I use 1cup whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup regular flour. We also usually serve with the light syrup instead of the applesauce just as a personal preference!

What more can I say but FABULOUS! I made these for the family this morning for breakfast and these pancakes were a huge hit!! We are not a huge syrup loving family so loved the sugar cinnamon and the applesauce on top (I usually use apple butter which I think would be great with this too!). They turned out absolutely perfect. Made for the Went to the Market Tag game

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, cereal, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and half of the cinnamon.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine eggs, buttermilk, and oil. Add to flour mixture. Stir just until combined but still slightly lumpy.
  3. Heat a lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet over medium heat until a few drops of water dance across the surface. For each pancake, pour a scant ¼ cup batter onto the hot griddle.
  4. Cook over medium heat until pancakes are golden brown, turning when pancake surfaces are bubbly and edges are slightly dry (about 1 to 2 minutes per side).
  5. Serve immediately, or keep warm in a loosely covered ovenproof dish in a 200°F oven for up to 30 minutes. Serve topped with applesauce and remaining ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon.
