Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

I've been wanting to make these for a long time.  It uses my classic whole wheat pancake recipe, but with chopped apples and cinnamon and guess what...they are divine!  They were DELICIOUS!!!  So, if you like apples and cinnamon...you'll love em'!

I'll give out my apple cinnamon waffle recipe later this week!

Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

3 C whole wheat flour
2 T baking powder
1/2 C brown sugar
4 eggs, separated
3 C milk
1/4 C oil
2 Granny Smith apples (peeled and chopped into small pieces with a chopper)
1 tsp. cinnamon

Heat the griddle. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and brown sugar. Separate the eggs. Beat the egg whites in a separate bowl until they form soft peaks when the beaters are lifted. Beat the egg yolks, milk and oil. Add the yolk mixture to the dry ingredients and blend. Fold in the egg whites. Stir in apples and cinnamon. Bake on a hot, greased griddle. Serves about 4 people, depending on the size of the pancakes. I usually double the recipe because my family devours it.

Note: You can add a little more apple and a little more cinnamon as desired. If your kiddos don't like the crunchiness of the apples, let the batter sit in the fridge for about 24 hours and the apples will be nice and soft!

P.S. You can turn this into waffles really easily by adding 2 eggs, 1 C of flour and decreasing the milk by 1/2 C. I'll show these in another post.
