Delicious Low-fat Whole Wheat Pancakes
1 cup + 2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons apple sauce
1 cup minus 2 tablespoons water or fat free nondairy milk (I use soy)
1/2 cup walnuts or blueberries, optional
1. Combine all dry ingredients, and mix together. Add apple sauce, water/nondairy milk, and mix until batter drips from spoon, but is not runny. If desired, mix in nuts or berries.
2. Heat griddle/frying pan and spray with cooking spray. Dip your finger in some water and flick it onto the surface of the pan. If it sizzles, it's time to fry up some yummy pancakes.
3. Ladle about 1/4 cup batter into the pan and let it cook until small bubbles form in the center and/or edges are cooked. Flip those babies over. Keep them warm in a preheated oven covered with a paper towel to keep the moisture in.
