Whole Wheat Walnuts Pancakes Final Picture

This weekend we “spring forward” by moving our clocks ahead one hour for daylight savings. I do not care to change the clocks because in the fall I dislike the evening getting darker earlier and in spring I lose an hour of sleep! There is never enough time in the day so losing an hour is never helpful. To start off this weekend I decided to try another whole-wheat pancake recipe. Hopefully these healthy pancakes will help me get everything done while losing an hour of the day! I personally do not see the reason for daylight savings – except it lets you know spring is close by. Do you like daylight savings?

Dry Ingredients
1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
1/4 cup All-Purpose Flour
1/3 cup Cream of Wheat
1/3 cup Sugar
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt

Wet Ingredients
1 1/2 cups Milk, fat free
2 tsp Vanilla
1/4 cup Applesauce
1 large Egg, lightly beaten

1/4 cup Walnuts, coarsely chopped

Mix together the dry ingredients. Add and blend in milk, applesauce, vanilla, egg, and walnuts. Let batter stand 5 minutes. In the meantime preheat oven to its warm setting. I like to place my pancakes in the oven to stay warm while I am making them. Heat a griddle or skillet over medium heat; coat pan with cooking spray. If a drop of water sizzles the grill is ready. Cook about 2-minutes or until the bubbles start to pop. Then turn over and cook for about another minute. Place in oven to keep them warm. Serve your stack of Whole Wheat Walnuts Pancakes with additional walnuts and other toppings such as bananas. Enjoy!!

  1. Morning, It’s funny that I get this post now, I was getting ready to plan tomorrow mornings breakfast and you just did it for me. Thanks 🙂

      Your welcome. I hope you enjoy them. You could also use raisins, pecans or anything that you like. I have enough left overs for my breakfast tomorrow – which is always nice. 🙂

    if you add any fruits like banana / apple etc while blending …u get lovely texture and flavor

    1. Bernice says:

      I agree – makes the pancakes more interesting. So far my favorite is the Whole Wheat Honey Banana Pecan pancakes. 🙂

    This sounds great, have been craving pancakes!

    1. Bernice says:

      I have been trying different pancake recipes to mix up my regular breakfast routine. I have a few more recipes I am hoping to try out! 🙂

  5. Rachel says:

    These look gorgeous! I’d love to try them with a little mango syrup and extra banana – can’t wait to try these!

    1. Bernice says:

      I love the idea of mango syrup! And of course more bananas – I love bananas! 🙂

  6. It is breakfast time in Hong Kong. Look at those delightful fluffy pancakes with the applesauce look delicious. You know something that I have not had since I lived in the States is some blueberry sauce/syrup topping. I am having a craving now…Have a super weekend, BAM

    1. Bernice says:

      Good Morning Bam! Funny I wanted to make blueberry pancakes with a syrup but our grocery store did not have any blueberries. It is on my to do list! I think my husband would really enjoy them. Have a great Sunday! Bernice

  7. Sophie33 says:

    Hello Bernice! I have made your tasty wholewheat thicker pancakes this midday & they were superb! I served them with a home-made blueberry maple syrup sauce! MMMM! Thanks again for the award too! 🙂 xxx

    1. Bernice says:

      That sounds wonderful that you made a blueberry maple syrup – sounds fab! I wanted to do something with blueberries this weekend but our grocery store did not have any. I think it is the in-between season when they are not available. Hopefully soon they will come back. 🙂

      1. Sophie33 says:

        I made it whith blueberries from my deepfreezer!

      2. Bernice says:

        Great idea! I should get a bag of frozen blueberries for such situations. 🙂

  8. Your pancakes look lovely! I do not care for daylight savings either…I really don’t think we accomplish anything with it 🙂 But your pancakes look like the perfect tool to combat that hour of lost sleep!

    1. Bernice says:

      Yes, it was nice that I had pancakes left over for today. So at least my breakfast was quick this morning to compensate for that lost hour!

    1. Bernice says:

      Thank you for posting on your blog!

  9. Heather says:

    The cream of wheat sounds interesting. How much like “whole wheat” do these taste? Even though I know it’s good for me, I just can’t get into the flavor 😉

    1. Bernice says:

      I use King Arthur whole wheat flour. I believe there are different types. These were good but I preferred the Whole Wheat Honey Banana Pecan Pancakes and Whole-Wheat Pumpkin Pancakes with a Chocolate Chip Surprise! I thought they taste less like whole wheat since there were so many other ingredients in them. The Whole Wheat Walnuts Pancakes were more like “whole wheat” than the other ones. 🙂

      1. Heather says:

        Aw shucks! These looks so good and not “whole wheat-y” 😉 Pumpkin pancakes it is!

      2. Bernice says:

        They were really good. In fact I may be making them this weekend as I have pumpkin in the freezer. 🙂
