Healthy Applesauce Oatmeal Pancakes

Something about the weekend makes me crave a big, hearty breakfast! This morning I woke up and had pancakes on my mind. Nothing beats a warm, comforting, buttery stack of pancakes topped with maple syrup. I decided to combine my craving for pancakes with the healthier breakfast option... oatmeal!

These hearty, "lightened up" Applesauce Oatmeal pancakes are heart-healthy and much better for you than a normal batch of pancakes. And they will fill you right up!!!



Healthy Applesauce Oatmeal Pancakes
based on a recipe from tasteofhome.com

Ingredients:
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup fat-free milk
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
4 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions:
In a bowl, combine the oats, flours, baking powder, and cinnamon. In another bowl, combine milk, applesauce, egg whites, and vanilla; add to dry ingredients and mix well.

 

Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a heated griddle coated with cooking spray. Cook until bubbles appear on the top; turn and cook until lightly browned. Yield: 5 servings (2 pancakes each).

 

These pancakes are DELICIOUS!!!! Great way to start the day... :) Next time I might chop up an apple and add it to the batter. 


Enjoy!
