Straight up: this is a weight watchers recipe. With that being said, it is AMAZING. When you eat these delightful pancakes it is if you are sneaking dessert for breakfast. But no worries here, these healthy treats can be consumed at any time of the day! Also another huge perk, they are super easy to make. Try them with cool whip, syrup, or sugar free caramel!
Note: these can easily be made vegan. Sub the egg whites for egg replacer powder. Also, sub milk for soy. This will prob change the texture so I would not add the full amount.
Dry Ingredients: 1 1/4 c of flour, 2 tbsp sugar, 2 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 baking soda, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/2 c of apple
Wet Ingredients: 1 c of low fat buttermilk, 1/2 c applesauce (cinnamon flavor), 1 tbsp veg oil, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 large egg lightly beaten ( I subbed 1/4 c of egg whites)
Place griddle on burner and place on low heat. Spray with cooking spray. Prep apples by dicing into small pieces. These apple are going in the batter, make sure they are small. Set apples aside, you won’t need them for a while.
In a large bowl, mix all of the dry ingredients together. Set aside.
In a separate bowl mix all wet ingredients together. Stir throughly.
Combine the wet mixture with the dry ingredients. Stir until blended. Once the mixtures are combined, add the apples.
Spoon batter on griddle. This recipe should make about 10 pancakes. If you are into weight watchers that means each pancake is 3 points.
Remove pancakes when both sides are a light brown and serve! We added a little bit of walnuts this time for extra flavor. You can fancy these up in many ways, be creative!
