This recipe was submitted to the site by 'florida222' in 2008. I tested it and photographed the results in August 2013. Overall, I liked these pancakes quite a bit. They were hearty and a bit more dense than your average diner-style pancakes. The oats and applesauce both made a great impact on the flavor. The only change I made to the recipe was that I mixed all the wet ingredients together separately before adding them to the dry ingredients. As you can see, I topped mine with more apple sauce, some chopped walnuts and a drizzle of maple syrup. It was terrific. I recommend it.

How To Make Applesauce Oatmeal Pancakes

In a large bowl, mix together the flours, oats, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Add all remaining ingredients and mix well. Let the batter set at least 5 minutes to soften the oats.

Heat a frying pan or griddle to medium-high heat. Coat generously with cooking spray.

Dollop the batter onto the hot surface in 1/4 cup amounts per pancake.

When the edges of the pancakes appear dry and bubbles are forming on the surface, flip the pancakes and cook the other side until golden brown.

These pancakes are great with maple syrup. My favorite is to top them with applesauce and drizzle on just a touch of maple syrup. I hope you like them as much as we do.
