Updated Sep 20, 2016

Ingredients

  • 1 cooking apple (such as Jonathan or Granny Smith), cored and finely chopped (about 3/4 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup Gold Medal™ whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon apple pie spice or ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup fat-free milk
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon apple pie spice or ground cinnamon
  • Apple pie spice or ground cinnamon (optional)
  • Fresh fruit (optional)

Steps

  • 1
    In a small bowl combine apple and lemon juice; set aside. In a medium bowl combine whole wheat flour, sugar, baking powder, the 1/4 teaspoon apple pie spice, and salt. In another small bowl combine milk, egg white, and oil; beat with a rotary beater or wire whisk.
  • 2
    Add milk mixture all at once to flour mixture; stir just until moistened (the batter should be lumpy). Gently fold in apple mixture.
  • 3
    Coat an unheated griddle or heavy nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat over medium heat until a few drops of water dance across the surface. For each pancake, pour a scant 1/4 cup of batter onto the hot griddle; spread batter into 3- to 4-inch circles.
  • 4
    Cook for 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until pancakes are golden brown, turning when pancake surfaces are bubbly and edges are slightly dry. In a small bowl stir together applesauce and the 1/8 teaspoon apple pie spice; serve with pancakes.
  • 5
    If desired, sprinkle with additional apple pie spice and serve with fresh fruit.
