Makes 20 pancakes.
- 4 oz Unsweetened Apple Sauce (the little cups are 4 oz)
- 1 cup Almond Milk
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

- 1 tablespoon Brown Sugar
- 4 teaspoons Baking Powder
- 3/4 teaspoon Salt
- 1 tsp Cinnamon

In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon set aside. In a medium bowl combine the milk, apple sauce, eggs and vanilla and whisk well. Pour the wet mixture into the dry and mix well. Let this mixture sit for 10 minutes to an hour, it will rise and fluff up a little.
Heat a griddle or large skillet on medium, spray with cooking spray and using a ladle pour your pancakes, once they bubble all over it is time to flip. Never squish down only flip once, good pancakes are fluffy because they have been treated with care.
Serve with all natural maple syrup and a smile 🙂
