I love these pancakes. The whole wheat flour makes them hearty and filling. They are not made with any refined sugar or oil. I've made them many times with a variety of different add-ins and combinations and they've been amazing every single time. Our favorite pancakes are made with unsweetened flaked coconut and safe chocolate chips. We also really like safe chocolate chips and any berry. We've even left out the maple syrup and just used an extra 2 tablespoons of applesauce. I've realized that you really can't go wrong with these pancakes, they are just so easy and versatile.
Perfect Whole Wheat Pancakes
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup soy milk
2 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
2 tbsp maple syrup or honey
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Add-ins desired such as safe chocolate chips, flaked coconut, blueberries, raspberries,
chopped strawberries, mashed or diced banana, Sunbutter, etc.
Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the soy milk, applesauce, maple syrup, and vanilla then mix until thoroughly combined. Fold in the add-ins desired. Allow the batter to sit for 5 minutes. Fry in a sprayed skillet over medium-low heat for 2 minutes or until the top is full of bubbles and the edges are dry. Flip then fry 1-2 additional minutes until golden. Continue until all of the batter is used, making sure to spray the pan before each addition.

My daughter, Jazlyn, is anaphylactic to egg, dairy, peanuts, and tree nuts. When she was first diagnosed, I found it very difficult to find recipes and foods that didn't taste like "allergy" food. Over the last 12 years I have had a lot of fun developing and changing recipes so that they are safe for her. I love to share my recipes so that other families can realize how yummy "allergy" foods can taste. You don't have to sacrifice taste or your favorite foods, you just have to rethink how to make them. I made a promise to Jazzy that I would do my very best to find a way for her to eat any food she wants to try. So far I have been able to keep that promise. I hope your family enjoys these recipes as much as we do.
