  1. In a large bowl, stir together the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, wheat germ, and baking powder. Make a well in the center, and stir in the egg yolks, applesauce and milk until fairly smooth. If the batter seems too thick, stir in more milk. In a separate bowl, whip the egg whites with an electric mixer to soft peaks. Fold egg whites into the batter, just until blended.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Scoop large spoonfuls of batter onto the hot pan, and fry until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip and cook until browned on the other side. Continue with remaining batter.

Two out of my three kids loved these. I really liked these because of how nutritious they were. I will definitely be making them again. Thanks for the recipe. The only thing I will change in...

These were a big hit. My husband is a diabetic & has high blood pressure, so I appreciate that it had no salt or sugar. I used all WW Pastry Flour, halved the recipe, but worked with 2 eggs. I g...

I wanted to make a special treat (fruit topped pancakes) for my youngest boy for his birthday (and his older brother as well) but I wanted to make it a little healthier than what I'd get at the ...

These turned out fluffy and very tasty. The kids (4 & 6) thought they were great too! I did add a tsp of vanilla and made sure the egg whites were well whipped. I loved a healthier alternative!

Delish! I stayed as close as I could to the recipe, though I had to use some vanilla yogurt + water instead of milk (last of the milk was sour--ick!) and white whole wheat flour instead of regul...

Absolutely heavenly! I veganized the recipe by using EnerG egg substitute (beaten stiff w/ mixer) and almond & rice milk. I also added a banana. They were extremely moist and the fluffiest vegan...
