Ingredients
  • 1 cup (120g) whole wheat pastry flour or white whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup nonfat plain (or flavored) Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Heat griddle or large skillet over medium heat. Spray with nonstick cooking spray or grease with oil or butter.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a medium mixing bowl.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine egg, almond milk, applesauce, yogurt and vanilla.
  4. Add flour mixture into the liquid mixture and whisk until blended. Allow blended batter to rest for about 5 minutes for super fluffy pancakes.
  5. Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to measure out batter for each pancake (about 54 grams/pancake) and cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side. They should be golden brown on each side.

Recipe Notes

To Keep Pancakes Warm: 

To keep pancakes warm in between batches, preheat your oven to 200 degrees F. Once the pancakes are cooked, transfer them to a large baking sheet and put them in the oven to stay warm.

Storing Leftovers: 

Store any leftover whole wheat pancakes in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week, or in the freezer for up to 3 months. I typically store my leftover pancakes in large zip-top baggies.

Freezing Pancakes: 

These fluffy whole wheat pancakes freeze so well! I often make a huge batch to enjoy through the week. Once the cooked pancakes have cooled to room temperature transfer them to a large baking sheet to flash-freeze them. When they are frozen, transfer them to an airtight container or zip-top baggies. Simply reheat in the microwave or toaster and you have a delicious, healthy breakfast ready ready-to-go super quick!
