This recipe is adapted from a basic, whole wheat buttermilk pancake recipe from Cooking Light which is one of my all-time favorites. For this recipe, I added cinnamon, vanilla, and applesauce, and cut some of the oil and sugar, to kick it up for my kids and make them even healthier!

Cinnamon Applesauce Pancakes 

  • 3/4 c all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 c whole wheat flour
  • 2 T sugar
  • 1 1/2 t baking powder
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 1/2 t kosher salt
  • 1/4 t cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 c low-fat buttermilk
  • 3 T applesauce
  • 1/2 t vanilla
  • 1/2 T oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg white
  • cooking spray
  • maple syrup

Combine flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl, stirring with a whisk. Separately, whisk together the buttermilk, applesauce, egg, and egg white, stirring with a whisk; add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist.

Heat a nonstick griddle or skillet sprayed with cooking spray over medium heat (I use an electric skillet). Spoon ~1/4 c batter per pancake onto griddle. Turn pancakes when you start to see bubbles around the edges. Serve with syrup.
