So it's the beginning of 2016, and we have jumped on the "Let's get healthy" bandwagon. My hubs and I are doing a health challenge where you can't have any sugar (except for 1 cheat day a week), and we have to eat a certain amount of fruits and veggies everyday among other things. These pancakes were such a delicious way to start the morning and get our fruit in. Plus the kids all like them too. Another bonus is that they are super filling. You don't feel like you are starving in an hour or even two hours. I LOVE these pancakes!
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup wheat germ
1 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 Tbs. honey
2 1/4 cup lowfat buttermilk
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
Mix dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Mix wet ingredients together in a medium mixing bowl. Then add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Stir until barely mixed. (The more you mix, the less fluffy the pancakes will be.) Cook on a griddle or frying pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
Makes 12 pancakes (using 1/3 cup batter per pancake)
