Healthy Applesauce Pancakes With No Sugar Added

"These pancakes freeze very well! Make them small for toddlers to hold or larger for the rest of the family. I like to use flavored (blueberry, strawberry, etc) applesauce without any added sugar. If you use a flavored applesauce, you may omit the vanilla flavoring. The flavors are great so that there is no need for syrup! This recipe is adapted from"

    These are excellent! I make them frequently now for my 2 year old wife and me. Yes they are a different consistency from pancakes, but who cares. They cook nicely, are thin, hold a blueberry or piece of strawberry or banana we’ll, and have zero added sugar. Great recipe thank you muchly!

    Please take this recipie down. They were a complete fail. I too followed the recipie perfectly, twice. Both times, the middle of the pancakes are soupy.

    I'm not the biggest fan of applesauce, so I used a good sized banana instead. Otherwise, these are the best pancakes I've ever had AND they have no added sugar.

    I also followed the recipe exactly and had the same problem as others. They looked perfect and golden on the outside, but were gooey and undercooked in the middle. I let some of them cook for a while, until they were quite dark on the outside, but still, mushy inside. They tasted alright so we ate them anyway so they wouldn't go to waste. Also, if a recipe says it makes 25 pancakes, it should specify what size those pancakes are. I made mine silver dollar size and I'd be lucky if I got 15 pancakes. Additionally, the recipe also says "serves 6". My toddler and I ate the entire batch and I was still hungry afterwards, so I am not sure how they are figuring this serves 6 people.

    Hello, just wondering what kind of sauce/syrup is in the photos. I am wanting to make some recipes with no refined sugar but I am thinking there's no much point in not adding sugar if maple syrup or honey is required as a topping. TIA
