The ingredient proportions are good except I did add some water to thin the batter a bit. These were fabulously fluffy light pancakes and so healthy! I even subbed all the flour for whole wheat! I've never made a w.w. pancake this fluffy before. I did add a little extra of the soda and powder. I didn't have sour cream so used a 6 oz. container of f.f. blackberry yogurt I had hanging around. I love the fact that this is high in fiber and very low fat...no butter or oil. Sprayed the pan with Pam and used butter spray and some honey on top! Filled me up on this rainy morning. Wonderful recipe and great with the whole wheat flour in lieu of all-purpose. If one doesn't like the batter that thick(it was more like a bread or muffin batter), just thin it with some water or milk to your liking.

I was actually looking for a waffle recipe that uses applesauce, and I ran across this particular pancake recipe. I liked the idea that it also uses oatmeal (since I have a lot of it in my cupboard!) I figured why not, I'll give it a try and make it into waffles. My experiment was a success--nice, light waffles with a hint of cinnamon. I doubled the recipe, and it made 4 full-sized waffles. I baked them in my waffle iron for approximately 8-9 minutes each. My husband gave them a thumbs up, too!


Who says a pancake has to be fluffy? These are wonderful. The batter is VERY thick and you have to kind of spread it in the pan. They are heavy...but that works for us. Two regular pancakes and I'm hungry by 10 a.m. Two of these and I was full to noon! Yummy too! My 10 yr old son ate two of them on top of his breakfast cereal. We will definately make these again!
