WW Applesauce Pancakes

 There is my little guy trying to cut his own pancakes.  They grow so fast. At least no one grows out of pancakes... unlike monster pajamas. 

Whole Wheat Applesauce Pancakes With Caramel Sauce

Yeah, I went there, and I added blue stripes.  For the pancake recipe I used the one in the Nick Jr. recipe page.  For that recipe go here: Whole Wheat Applesauce Pancakes

The next step I took was to separate a small amount of pancake batter, dye it blue with food colouring, and stick it in a squeeze bottle. (A small bag with the corner snipped would work too)

I add 1/4 to 1/2 a cup of frozen chopped apples to the batter for added fruit.  Blueberries and chocolate chips always work too, or anything really goes.  In fact, I do not have apple pie spice, so I used pumpkin pie spice instead.  I am a rebel like that.

Put the batter on the hot, buttery frying pan (butter or margarine always make better pancakes then oil. Use lots and have a crispy outer crust with fluffy insides), then squeeze out your coloured lines on the pancake before it cooks. (you can try patterns if you are brave, but my flowers didn't turn out, so I suggest zig-zags just for the colour splash)

Top the pancakes with caramel sauce.  I just used the smucker's caramel sauce I had in the fridge from when I made that caramel buttercream icing for my son's banana birthday cake.


(I am pretty sure he did)
