These are amazingly light for being whole wheat. The applesauce and buttermilk are good fat-replacements. And I love the addition of the flax seeds. I used dry buttermilk low-fat buttermilk powder and water. Made for Spring 2009 PAC.
I love this recipe! I've been on the hunt for recipes that are tasty and diabetic friendly. I'm not a diabetic but I've been cooking for my sister who is. I made a few changes that make these pancakes float off your plate. First, I separated the eggs and beat the whites until stiff. While the whites are beating, I pulse the dry ingredients in the food processor. Then I mix the applesauce, egg yolks, and milk. I don't like artificial sweetners so I mix agave nectar into the milk mixture along with a little vanilla extract. I mix the wet and dry ingredients then fold in the egg whites I also heat my cast iron skillet while I do everything else. Finally, I make the silver dollar size pancakes. Soooo good.
