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.

Repeat procedure with remaining batter, raisins, and walnuts. Serve with syrup.

Best pancakes I've ever made

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.

These are so good! Very happy with the fluffiness of the pancakes as well as the nutrition value!

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.
