Whole Wheat Applesauce Greek Yogurt Pancakes

29 Jun

It’s hard to beat a lazy pancake breakfast on a nice weekend morning. Different from the hustle and bustle of a weekday, it seems like I have all the time in the world when the weekend hits. French press coffee or a perfect cup of tea, hearty homemade breakfast, and usually something nerdy on the TV = my ideal Saturday or Sunday morning.

A healthy breakfast is still the key, no matter what day of the week it is. These pancakes are made with a combination of whole wheat flour and ground oats; applesauce and Greek yogurt give them a tangy punch; cinnamon lends a nice spice factor; a touch of molasses sweetens the pot, without destroying the flavor. Top with honey, maple syrup, coconut oil, peanut butter, fresh fruit, or even some homemade jam! Bonus: keep the leftovers in the fridge for a quick and indulgent breakfast once work hits again on Monday.

Makes 12 pancakes

  • 1 C whole-wheat flour
  • 1 C ground oats
  • 1½ tbsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 C milk C warm water
  • 1 C unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 C plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp molasses
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs with the milk. Whisk in the applesauce, yogurt, molasses and vanilla.

Pour the wet into the dry and whisk until just combined. The batter will be nice and thick.

Heat a nonstick skillet or griddle over medium-high. Spray with olive oil PAM, or other fat, such as butter or coconut oil.

Drop batter onto the hot pan using a 1/3 C measuring cup.

Let cook 2-3 minutes and flip when bubbles begin to form on top; press down and cook another 3 minutes.

Transfer cooked pancakes to a serving platter. To keep them warm as you finish cooking, simply turn the oven onto its lowest setting and put the oven-safe platter (or use a cookie sheet) in the oven to hold finished pancakes.
