Whole Wheat Applesauce Pancakes with Cinammon Molasses Syrup

I love to make big Saturday breakfasts.  I made these pancakes the other day and loved them so much that we are having them again.  They are healthy and moist and delicious (although for some reason, I think the batter smells gross) Save the leftover pancakes and heat them up in the microwave for a few seconds and spread with peanut butter for a midmorning snack.

**The original recipes can be found at and, respectively.

Whole Wheat Applesauce Pancakes

  • 1 cup uncooked rolled oats
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cinammon
  • 2 tablespoons dry milk powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup applesauce

  • Directions

    1. Place the rolled oats into the jar of a blender and blend until the texture resembles coarse flour. Whisk together the blended oats, whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, brown sugar, cinammon, dry milk powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl; set aside.
    2. Whisk together the egg, milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla. Stir in the applesauce. Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture and stir just until moistened. Let the batter stand for 5 minutes.
    3. Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium-high heat. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle, and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, about 2 minutes. Flip, and cook until browned on the other side. Repeat with remaining batter.
