Whole-Wheat Apple Pancakes

whole-wheat apple pancakes



There’s nothing like a delicious and healthy breakfast.  These whole-wheat pancakes are just that, delicious and healthy! They taste so yummy, that they seem more like a treat than a healthy alternative. Here’s the recipe so you can enjoy them too. 🙂


1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole-wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon salt
2 cups low-fat buttermilk
2 tablespoons molasses
1 tablespoon butter, melted
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
2 large eggs
2 Granny Smith apples, peeled and chopped


Combine flours, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk.

Combine buttermilk, molasses, butter, lemon juice and eggs in separate bowl; whisk until well blended.

Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture, and stir until smooth.

Fold apple into batter, and let stand 5 minutes.

Heat a nonstick griddle or large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat.

Pour about ¼ cup batter for each pancake onto hot skillet.

Cook 3 minutes or until tops are covered with bubbles; turn and cook other side.

Repeat with remaining batter.

I hope you like them as much as I do.

    These would be so good with some fried apples on top!

    Sounds like a hearty and nutritious breakfast. I just wish I could master the art of making pancakes that actually look like pancakes after they cook!

      I know what you mean Cheryl, LOL. Mine are never really round, some not even oval. 🙂
