Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes

One of the things I miss in dealing with struggles related to my food allergies, is going out to eat. We hardly ever do so around here. When I did go out to eat, I loved getting pancakes -- yum. Buttermilk pancakes. Not the most healthy (the restaurant variety, that is), but they are certainly tasty!

Golden in color. Perfectly delicious. Yum.

So, I tried to create my own :) And, with some success, I present, wheat buttermilk pancakes made without oil!

Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes

1 C whole wheat flour
1 C all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 T brown sugar/honey
1/4 C applesauce
1 egg
2 C buttermilk (or 2 T vinegar + milk to make 2 C)*

Sift together the dry ingredients.

Mix applesauce, buttermilk, egg and sugar together.

Add dry and wet ingredients together and whisk until moist. Look at all the bubbles!

Pre-heat a griddle to 300ish degrees, and use a 1/4 C measuring cup to create pancakes on the griddle. Grill on one side until bubbly, then flip and continue cooking until golden brown.

Serve with fresh fruit sauce for a real treat.

*when you make your own "buttermilk" let the vinegar and milk sit together for about 10 minutes before using in the recipe.


  1. Since my husband has developed a pretty severe allergy to seafood in adulthood, I've gained a glimpse at the heavy stress food allergies can be. While it's pretty easy to avoid seafood (except at certain restaurants and when he goes to Asia for business), I can't imagine being allergic to something more common and the inconvenience (and worry) that that would bring.

    PS The pancakes look great, although I can't figure out why you said they're not healthy. Whole wheat flour, no oil, and I thought buttermilk was fat free. Sounds like a healthy enough breakfast to me! :)

  2. They look great. Thanks again for a great recipe! I love pancakes so much. FD doesn't care for them, so they are usually a special treat for me when I'm by myself or when he makes them especially for me.

  3. hey; thanks for stopping by. You can't beat pancakes! yum.

  4. Awesome looking pancakes!
    I needed a great pancake recipe! Thanks!

  5. Where was this on Saturday? I needed you! We made some from another site and they were super salty. Oh well- next time yours are going into our tummies.

  6. These look fabulous and I can't wait to give them a try!

  7. My son is allergic to both milk and soy and I am diabetic, so I know just what you mean!
