Serves: 16 pancakes


1 cup all-purpose flour
1¼ cups whole wheat flour
¼ cup packed brown sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. nutmeg
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1½ cups non-fat buttermilk
3 Tbsp unsweetened applesauce


In a large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, spices, baking soda and salt and make a well in the center of the flour mixture. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, buttermilk and applesauce and add to the flour mixture, mixing until just combined. Batter will be slightly lumpy.

Heat a greased skillet over medium heat and spoon about ¼ cup batter onto skillet. Cook over medium heat for about 2 minutes on each side or until pancakes are golden brown. Flip over when surface is bubbly and edges are slightly dry.

Serve warm and garnish with fresh apple slices and a bit of pure maple syrup, enjoy!
