Two days ago I made Apple-Walnut-Pancakes from scratch! They turned out oh-so-yummy. The apples in them were my favorite part. I love the taste of warm apples, always! 🙂 They were a big hit with the girls too. So a win, all around. They weren’t the prettiest pancakes to look at (I’m not that good yet!) but they made our tummies happy!

The recipe comes from Taste of Home’s Healthy Cooking magazine.


* 1 cup all-purpose flour
* 1 cup whole wheat flour
* 1 tablespoon brown sugar
* 2 teaspoons baking powder
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 2 egg whites
* 1 egg, lightly beaten
* 2 cups fat-free milk
* 2 tablespoons canola oil
* 1 medium apple, peeled and chopped
* 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
* Maple syrup


* In a large bowl, combine the flours, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Combine the egg whites, egg, milk and oil; add to dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in apple and walnuts.
* Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a hot griddle coated with cooking spray; turn when bubbles form on top. Cook until the second side is golden brown. Serve with syrup. Yield: 18 pancakes.
