For 8 Pancakes:
Whole Wheat Flour -- 1&1/4 cup
Baking Soda -- 1 tsp
Brown Sugar -- 2 tbsp
1% Milk -- 1 cup
Eggbeaters -- .5 cup
Vanilla extract -- 1 tbsp
Cinnamon -- 2 tbsp
For 1 Apple Topping (you'll have to times this by 8 if you're following the 8 pancake recipe):
Small to Medium sized Apple -- 1
1 Spoonful of sugar
Cinnamon -- 1/4 tsp
Cornstarch -- 1/4 tsp
Water -- 1 tbsp
Small handful of Raisins -- Optional
If you want a lower-sugar version of the pancakes, add 2 tbsp of Splenda (or similar) instead of brown sugar.
If you want a lower-sugar version of the apple topping, add a small packet of Splenda instead of a spoonful of sugar.
For the Apple Topping, cut up (any way you want) 1 apple, place in a freezer-quality plastic zippered bag or in a covered microwave-safe glass bowl or on top of the stove in a regular pan, whatever makes you comfortable. For this recipe, I used the bag method. Add in the remaining ingredients (spoonful of sugar, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp cornstarch, and 1tbsp water. If you would like, you can add a small handful of raisins. It's optional), seal your bag and shake well to mix ingredients. After ingredients are mixed, re-open the bag about 1 inch to vent and place in the microwave for about 2 minutes. Carefully (it will be hot!) open bag and pour over 1 pancake. Repeat the Apple Topping process with each pancake you make. This recipe makes 8 pancakes, so you'll need about 8 apples. But you can adjust it any way you want. Enjoy!
