Applesauce Oatmeal Pancakes

While boxes of pancake mix are convenient, it really doesn't take much time to make your own pancake batter. For a little extra fiber, try these yummy applesauce oatmeal pancakes. Resist the temptation to top them with butter. A little maple syrup is perfect, or try some warmed applesauce and a sprinkling of cinnamon.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour (or substitute whole wheat flour for half the amount)
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup fat-free milk
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 tbsp canola oil


1. Place ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk until well blended.
2. Heat a griddle to 375 degrees (medium). When griddle is hot, pour about 1/4 cup of pancake batter per pancake. Cook until bubbles appear and edges are puffed. Flip the pancakes and cook until golden.
*Makes about 8 pancakes.
