Whole Wheat Walnuts Pancakes

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!!
