Cinnamon Apple Pancakes with Cinnamon Applesauce Recipe

20 servings, ready in 25 minutes


Whisk together the flours, SPLENDA® Granulated, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add the apple juice, oil, vanilla and egg whites. Whisk together just until smooth and blended. Don’t overmix. Gently stir in the grated apples with a rubber spatula.

Spray a large nonstick skillet or griddle with cooking spray. Heat over medium heat for 2 minutes or until a drop of water skips on its surface.

Drop the batter, using a scant 1/4 cup (60 mL) for each pancake, into the skillet. Cook the pancakes on medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until bubbles appear on top. Turn the pancakes over with a spatula and lightly brown the other side for about 2 minutes. Transfer pancakes to a plate and keep warm. Repeat with the remaining batter, spraying the skillet between batches. Serve warm.

Tip: These keep for 2 days in the refrigerator. They reheat and/or freeze well. 

Cinnamon Applesauce:

Combine apples, water, SPLENDA®  Brown Sugar Blend and cinnamon in a large saucepan.

Bring to boil

Reduce heat to simmer and cook partially covered for 20 – 25 minutes, until tender, stirring occasionally.

To microwave, cook covered on HIGH power for 6 – 8 minutes, or until tender. Stir once or twice during cooking.

Break up applesauce with a spoon or serve it chunky
