Jordan and I decided to make these this past weekend and I'm so glad we did! We canned applesauce a few months ago, so we figured they would be super good with our homemade applesauce. Luckily we still had a jar leftover. Canned applesauce and peaches tend to be eaten very quickly in our household. Enjoy!
PREP TIME: 8 minutes
COOK TIME: 12 minutes
TOTAL TIME: 20 minutes
YIELDS: 10 pancakes
1/2 cup white whole wheat flour
1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or soy or low-fat dairy milk)
3 large egg whites
2 teaspoons canola or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
cooking spray or oil mister
1/4 cup mini or regular chocolate chips
honey or pure maple syrup, for serving (optional)
In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder and salt.
In a separate bowl, combine the applesauce, almond milk, egg whites, oil and vanilla. Stir the flour mixture into the applesauce mixture until just moist, being careful not to overmix.
Heat a large nonstick griddle over medium-low heat. When hot, lightly spray the pan with oil. Scoop out 1/4 cup of pancake batter for each pancake, then sprinkle 1 teaspoon of chocolate chips on top. Cook until the pancakes start to bubble and the edges begin to set, 1 1/2 minutes. Flip the pancakes over and cook the second side until golden, 1 1/2 minutes. Repeat with the remaining batter.
Top with honey or maple syrup (if using). Enjoy!
