Grain Free Applesauce Pancakes

Grain Free Applesauce Pancakes

These yummy pancakes are grain free and use applesauce instead of sugar to add sweetness. You would never know the difference. They are light and fluffy, taste wonderful and are a healthier alternative to the traditional buttermilk pancake.

Make sure to use unsweetened applesauce. So much of our food contains too much sugar. Applesauce is a great substitute with its natural sweetness. I like to use coconut oil spray instead of butter for this recipe.

I use agave syrup or maple syrup in the recipe. None of that fake, super sweet, ultra-processed pancake syrup for me. Agave is slightly sweeter in taste than maple syrup, so I usually use maple. Try making a batch with agave and another with maple and see which you prefer.

If you’re a pancake lover, you’ll want to make these. My family loves pancakes and they’ve given this recipe two thumbs up. Get the kids to help out and make it a family event.
