Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup whole-grain high-fiber wheat flake cereal with raisins
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 3/4 cups buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 2 cups unsweetened applesauce

Directions

  • In a large bowl, combine flour, cereal, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and half of the cinnamon. In a medium bowl, combine eggs, buttermilk, and oil. Add to flour mixture. Stir just until combined but still slightly lumpy.
  • Heat a lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet over medium heat until a few drops of water dance across the surface. For each pancake, pour a scant 1/4 cup batter onto the hot griddle.
  • Cook over medium heat until pancakes are golden brown, turning when pancake surfaces are bubbly and edges are slightly dry (about 1 to 2 minutes per side). Serve immediately, or keep warm in a loosely covered ovenproof dish in a 200°F oven for up to 30 minutes. Serve topped with applesauce and remaining 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon.
