  • 1 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (quick oats)
  • 1 1/2 cups cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 3/4 cups 1 % milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp white vinegar
  • 4 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 egg whites
  • 3 tbsp finely chopped walnuts
  • 3 tbsp finely chopped blanched almonds

Garnish (optional)

  • Weight Watchers IHOP copycat Apple Cinnamon topping (see link in post and in instructions)
  • additional cinnamon sprinkles
  • light whipped cream * I use the spray can of light real whipped cream
  • a few nuts


  • Mix milk and vinegar together and set aside.
  • Grind the oats in a blender or food processor until fine. In a large bowl, combine ground oats, whole wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  • Beat the egg whites in a separate bowl until stiff peaks form.
  • In another bowl, combine , milk mixed with vinegar, applesauce and sugar with an electric mixer until smooth. Mix wet ingredients into dry until just combined.
  • Finely chop walnuts and almonds and stir into mixture. Fold in whipped egg whites
  • Lightly oil a skillet or griddle, and preheat it to medium heat. Ladle 1/2 cup of the batter onto the hot skillet. I used a 6 inch frying pan, but you could do a bunch on a griddle as well.
  • Cook the pancakes for 2 to 4 minutes per side, or until brown. Flip when surface just starts to bubble. *
  • * I use a very thin spatula - I find it easier to flip the pancakes with one like this.
  • *If mixture starts to thicken too much add a little milk¬†(1-2 tsps until consistency is back to how it was originally)
