Here’s the ultimate breakfast comfort food. Applesauce can successfully replace eggs in these light, yet hearty, pancakes. If using applesauce rather than eggs, increase griddle temperature to 375°F and cook pancakes 3 to 4 minutes on each side.

*TIP Can’t tolerate corn? Replace the cornmeal in this recipe with rice bran. Replace the cornstarch in the high-protein flour blend with sorghum.

Yields 6 servings


  • 1 cup High-Protein Power Flour Blend
  • ¾ cup buckwheat flour or millet flour
  • ⅓ cup cornmeal*
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1¾ cups milk, soy milk or rice milk
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 3 large eggs or ¾ cup unsweetened applesauce


1Preheat a griddle to medium (350°F).

2Whisk together the flours, cornmeal, brown sugar, baking powder and cinnamon in a large bowl.

3In a separate bowl, combine milk, vegetable oil, honey and eggs (or applesauce). Add liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix gently with a fork, just to combine.

4Spray the griddle with vegetable oil or lightly grease the surface.

5For each pancake, spoon ¼ cup batter onto the griddle and cook until bubbles begin to form on the surface and edges start to dry, about 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook another 2 minutes or until lightly browned on the bottom.

6Serve warm or keep warm in an oven set on low heat.
