Thrive Apple Pancakes

As a kid, I always hated pancakes (execpt from IHOP) .   I think that everyone I ever knew always made them from Bisquick so I guess it makes a little sense.  These pancakes are not only TONS healthier since they are made from wheat flour, rather than white and have applesauce instead of oil and apples... they are also amazing, moist, fluffy and DELICIOUS!!! I made them for my husband's family this weekend and my father-in-law (who's tough to please at times) says they are the "best pancakes in the world!" I adapted this recipe from the Deals to Meals Blog. You should check out her other amazing recipes as well as the service she offers for people who dread couponing but still want to stock up on sales!

Apple Cinnamon Wheat Pancakes
3/4 c. water

1/2 c. THRIVE Apple Chips blended in the food processor to make smaller, fine chips
1 3/4 c. water
1/3 c. THRIVE Instant or non-fat dry powdered milk
2 T. THRIVE powdered eggs

1/2 c. applesauce
1 T. lemon juice
4 T. oil
2 T. sugar

2 t. baking powder
1/2 c. white flour
1 1/2 c. wheat flour
2 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. nutmeg
¾ t. salt
¾ t. soda

(Optional topping, but totally worth it!!!)
1 c. chopped pecans
1 T. THRIVE egg powder
2 T. warm water
1/2 c. white sugar
1 T. brown sugar
1/4 t. cinnamon

1. Place crushed apple chips and 3/4 c. water in a separate bowl to allow to soak.
2. If making the pecan mixture, add water and powdered eggs into a small cereal both and mix well. Add pecans to eggs and thoroughly coat.  In another cereal bowl mix together sugars and cinnamon and mix well.  Add egg coated pecans to sugar mixture and coat well.  Cover broiling pan with foil and spread sugar coated pecans onto foil.
2. Heat 1 3/4 c. water in a large bowl in the microwave for a minute. Add powdered eggs,  powdered milk, and lemon juice to the hot water. Add applesauce, oil and sugar.
3. In a separate bowl add all of the dry ingredients and whisk together to thoroughly mix.
4. Add apple chips to wet ingredients, then add dry ingredient mixture.
5. Butter the frying pan, then scoop 1/3 c. of mixture per pancake. If doing pecan topping stick them in to broil for 3-5 minutes depending on how hot your broil is.
6. Serve with carmelized pecans and a little maple syrup. Serves 4-6 people.
