Ingredients

  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour*
  • 1 tablespoon gingerbread spice mix
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/3 cup molasses
  • 1 1/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons milk whole milk is best in this recipe
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted and cooled slightly

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the white whole wheat flour, gingerbread spice, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, applesauce, molasses, and milk. Slowly whisk in the melted butter.
  • Pour the dry ingredients into the wet. Whisk until just combined. Let batter rest for 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, heat a large skillet or electric griddle over medium heat. Scoop a scant ¼ cup (about 3 tablespoons) of batter for each pancake. Let cook on the first side for 2-3 minutes, until bubbles begin to form and the bottom is lightly browned. Flip pancakes and cook for about 2 minutes on the second side, until cooked through.
  • Serve pancakes immediately or keep warm in a 200 degree (F) oven while you cook the rest of the pancakes.
  • You may freeze extra pancakes for later. Cool completely and store airtight in a zip-top bag.

Notes

*Regular whole wheat flour or all purpose flour may be substituted. Regular whole wheat flour will yield a stronger whole wheat flavor than white whole wheat.
