Whole Wheat Pancakes made lighter...

Whole Wheat Pancakes made even better!

I am pretty excited today! Not only is one of my most favorite people in the whole world coming to visit me (yep that's you sis!) but I just found a way to make my Whole Wheat Pancakes even better!!!

First off my sister flies in this morning to spend a week just hanging out with T, me and the kids. How lucky am I? This means shopping, lunches, long walks on the beach and just hanging out with the one person in the world that knows me best (and still likes me!).

Now onto the incredible pancakes!



Whole Wheat Pancakes (Weight Watchers point value...2 pancakes=3 points)

Ingredients:

2 cup whole wheat flour
2Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
1-3/4 cup milk
4 Tbs unsweetened apple sauce
1 mashed banana

Directions:

Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.

In a smaller bowl mix the banana, applesauce, milk and eggs.

Add wet ingredients to the dry and stir until just moist.

Cook on an electric griddle or fry pan.

This makes about 16 pancakes but the girls like the heated up the next day or even cold from the fridge as a snack! Recipe halves well for less pancakes!

As Always...

Happy Entertaining!!!

It's always nice to spend time with people that know you very well (and still like you, LOL) I just spend a whole weekend with my family and friends and that was great. Nice pancakes! How do you calculate the WW points?

Love pancakes with mashed-in banana and love them served with apple sauce, great idea to combine all of that!

Lydia (The Perfect Pantry) said...

Will white whole wheat flour work just as well in these?

Have fun with your sister! :)

My husband discovered this recipe and has been making these pancakes for Saturday morning breakfast every week. They are DELICIOUS! And healthy! Thanks so much for such a great recipe! My husband is so proud of himself for finding it. : )

Very yum looking recipe for lighter and fluffier pancakes. Maybe try doctor grandmas delight, which is a great all natural sugar substitute w/o calories that I've found. It's the best splenda/sugar replacement I've found. I really like your incorporating apple sauce - yay!!!

As the parents of 5 kids, we are trying to incorporate more wheat into our diet. These were awesome! The kids ate them up without any hesitation.

Deb said...

I just made your pancakes after doing a search for whole wheat. They were so light and yummy! My family loved them! Thanks for sharing!

Marie said...

Thanks for this recipe - making them as we speak, in early spring in New York City :-)
