Maple Pancakes


I am sure that I have said this before but we have pancakes every weekend. They are my husbands favorite breakfast food so of course it is always his choice for breakfast. We try to make it as healthy as possible by using oats, wheat flour and apple sauce instead of the more usual ingredients found in pancakes.

One morning my husband made these pancakes and asked if I could tell what he put into them. I could not find anything that I thought was added but of course at that time I had already put maple syrup on my pancakes so of course I would not have been able to tell. Unlike regular pancakes where you need to douse them with syrup these had the flavor though out them so a little bit of syrup went a long way. The key to these is REAL maple syrup not that sugary substitute.


  • 1 c. wheat flour
  • 1 c. maple brown sugar oatmeal
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 3 Tbsp. apple sauce
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 c. fat free buttermilk
  • 1/2 c. maple syrup
  1. Grind oatmeal in a food processor until it looks like flour.
  2. Combine ground oats, wheat flour, baking soda and baking powder in a large bowl and mix.
  3. Mix in apple sauce, honey, eggs, buttermilk and maple syrup until there are not large lumps of flour.
  4. Heat skillet over medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Spoon batter into skillet and flip when you see the bubbles form in the pancake.

Yummers, this sounds awesome. My kids were just asking for pancakes this morning but I wasn't in the mood! So frozen waffles it was! I'm sure they would have liked these better! Thanks!

What a great idea! I use maple syrup in my crescent roll dough when I make little sausage link pigs in blankets... adds a nice maple flavor and isn't as messy as having the littles dip into the sticky stuff! :)
