How to Make It

Step 1

Lightly spoon the flours into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flours, farina, and next 4 ingredients (through salt) in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Combine milk, applesauce, and egg in a medium bowl, stirring until well blended. Add milk mixture to flour mixture, stirring until well combined. Let batter stand 5 minutes.

Heat a nonstick griddle or skillet over medium heat; coat pan with cooking spray. Pour about 1/4 cup batter per pancake onto pan; sprinkle each with 2 teaspoons raisins and 2 teaspoons walnuts. Cook 1 minute or until tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Carefully turn pancakes over, and cook 1 minute or until bottoms are lightly browned. Repeat procedure with remaining batter, raisins, and walnuts. Serve with syrup.

Best pancakes I've ever made

August 30, 2015
I can't believe I haven't reviewed these before. I've been making them since they 1st appeared in Cooking Light. They are they only type of pancakes we make now & we love them. We use flaxseed & water to substitute for the egg, and almond milk, to make them vegan. We mix up a bunch of the dry ingredients & take it with to the cabin or camping & then just have to add the wet ingredients at breakfast time.

So good! Instead of maple syrup, we used home made pear butter and I also added 1/2 t of cinnamon to the recipe and replaced the sugar with agave nectar. Next time will probably use 1/8 C agave and 1/8 more applesauce. It's sweet enough with the raisins.

I was craving for some good for you pancakes and found this recipe. I was so lucky I had most of the ingredients. I substituted Coco Wheats for the Farina (same thing but with cocoa powder). I didnt have raisins. I used my grand daughters small jar of applesauce I had for her mornings. lol. Hey it all worked. It made enough for two weeks for me. Thank you so much for this recipe!! It's a keeper!

Let me add to the chorus; these are really, really delicious pancakes. Forget about whether or not they are healthy or low fat. These have become my homemade pancakes of choice and I imagine I'll make them every Sunday morning until I get sick of them.
