Whole Wheat Cinnamon Apple Pancakes

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by A Messy Cook

Cinnamon is good. Apple is good. And whole wheat is good. So put them together, and you have a scrumptiously healthy breakfast! These all-natural pancakes would be lovely with warm maple syrup, or fresh fruit and a little cream. Recipe is from Light and Tasty’s April/May 2005 issue.

These are DELICIOUS! I actually found these on another website, and as per the reviews, I changed the recipe a little. I was sure to grease the griddle very well (as you should with any low fat baking) and I reduced the temp to a little below 350 so they cooked all the way through. I cut up 2 small apples to use. I used canola oil instead of olive oil. I subbed in a 1/2 cup AP flour so they were a bit more tender. finally, I had to use about 2/3 c skim milk, and 1 1/3 c 1% because I ran out of skim. I know this sounds like alot of changes, but they were so amazing! These actually make 15 perfect pancakes for me. I would probably use brown sugar next time instead of honey because the honey didn't blend very well. I will for sure make again, and I will likely keep my substitutions.
