Whole Wheat Pancakes

The pancake recipe is simple – like everything ingenious. At the same time – cooking pancakes is a whole science.


  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 ¼ cups whole milk 
  • 2 tablespoons honey 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 


  • In a large bowl, whisk together white whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • In a medium bowl, combine eggs, applesauce, milk, honey and vanilla. Whisk until smooth. Whisk in melted butter. (The batter will be thick, but avoid adding more milk or your pancakes may turn out flat rather than light and fluffy.)
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and whisk until just incorporated.
  • Heat a griddle or skillet over medium heat. Spray lightly with cooking spray. Scoop batter by scant ¼ cup onto the heated griddle. Cook on the first side until bubbles begin to form and the bottom side of the pancakes are lightly brown, about 2-3 minutes. Flip pancakes and cook until the second side is browned, about 2 minutes more. Serve immediately or keep warm in a 200 degree oven while you cook the rest of the pancakes.
