Apple Oatmeal Pancakes

I love a good pancake recipe. This one is quick, simple, and healthy. Perfect for a Sunday morning.  The ingredients are all good for you and you probably already have most of them in your pantry.
The pancakes are fluffy and airy. We drizzled them with a little bit of light maple syrup and they were delicious! The applesauce gives is just the right amount of sweetness without adding too much sugar.
Apple Oatmeal Pancakes
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup oats (quick or old-fashioned)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar (more or less depending on the sweetness of your applesauce)
1/2 cup applesauce
2 egg whites
1 tbsp vegetable oil 

In a large bowl, mix together the flours, oats, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.

Add all remaining ingredients and mix well. Let the batter set at least 5 minutes to soften the oats.

Heat a frying pan or griddle to medium-high heat. Coat generously with cooking spray.

Dollop the batter onto the hot surface in 1/4 cup amounts per pancake.

When the edges of the pancakes appear dry and bubbles are forming on the surface, flip the pancakes and cook the other side until golden brown.
