Whole Wheat Applesauce Pancakes

I'm loving this fall weather and fall produce! After a trip to Apple Hill I ended up with a ton of apples and quite a few pumpkins and squash.

As soon as I got home I bought a nifty apple peeler. It made making applesauce a quick and easy! I also picked up some amazing Apple Butter which inspired this morning breakfast. Whole Wheat Applesauce Pancakes with Apple Butter

Makes 4-5 pancakes

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats, blended in a food processor until fine powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbs brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup applesauce (click here for recipe)
Place the vanilla extract, almond milk and applesauce into a small bowl and whisk. In a large bowl place the wheat flour, oat flour, baking powder & sugar and mix well. Combine the the wet and dry ingredients and mix until all ingredients are moistened. Heat a non-stick skillet to a medium heat. Use a measuring cup and pour 1/3 cups poritons into the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side.

Apple Butter!! I've never been a fan of apple butter until I tasted the real thing! Holy moly this stuff is great on apple pancakes!
Maple Syrup - the real stuff! It's a little pricey for the real stuff but a little bit goes a long way!
Chopped Almonds - add these for a little extra crunch
Whipped Cream - Have a big sweet tooth? Go for it!!
