This is a delicious and easy recipe! We are always watching those calories, so I am an avid modifier. I give this 5 stars after these modifications: substitute 2/3 of the oil with apple sauce, use 1/4 cup eggbeaters for every egg, use low or no-fat yogurt, use skim milk. This brings the fat% to less than 15% without hurting the flavor. Using whole wheat instead of all purpose flour will increase the fiber 3-fold and adds a robust flavor. I grind my own which means that it is fresh & chocked full of extra flavor & nutrients, too. Whole wheat has fewer calories and more protein, too. Addressing the comments of others, we thought the cinnamon was not overpowering -- in fact I might add more next time. It only took minutes to prepare, just the time to quickly peel an apple which is a breeze with the good peeler Santa brought me. And as far as knowing when to turn the pancakes, give them a little shove with the spatula -- if they easily move around, you can safely turn them. If they seem to be cooking too fast, turn the heat down a little. I found that medium high, but more towards medium than high was the best setting for me after making all of these changes.

I don't think these pancakes are worth the going to the trouble of peeling and chopping an apple. The pancakes seem heavy, dark (from the amount of cinnamon), and the flavor of the apple is overpowered by too much cinnamon. I would not make these pancakes again.

Oh my goodness! These are so good! I substituted 1 cup of flour for oats for extra fiber and added the remaining amount of flour. I used applesauce instead of oil, and I added about a half teaspon of apple pie spice. I used light plain yogurt. And instead of chopping my apple, I grated it. I also added artificial sweetner to the batter. If you choose to use sugar, try with about 1 tablespoon at first.

These were very good pancakes! I found the cinnamon to be the perfect amt (it is my signature spice) and instead of chopping an apple, I grated it into the batter. Plus, I'm not sure why other people thought this is a time-consuming recipe because it only took me minutes to make. My ONLY complaint is that they were not as fluffy as other pancakes I've made before. Still, I would make this again and I loved the way my house smelled from these! Thanks Bonnie!

The kids like it but I will cut my apples smaller next time. At first they were aprehensive about these chunks in their pancakes and I added 2 TBS wheat germ to make it even healthier and it doesn't change the flavor. Very good recipe. A change from the regular pancakes was needed here!

Pretty good. If you're looking for a ready in 5 min. breakfast, this isn't the one. I had trouble telling when they were ready to flip. It doesn't usually bubble until it has already burnt a little.

This was the best pancake recipe I have made. The pancakes freeze well. I will make these often.

Man did we love these pancakes!!! All I had on hand was peach yogurt so I threw that in instead and it worked out great! I used a little more apple than was called for and every bite was a piece of heaven. Our leftovers (what little we had left) were rather moist the next day so we popped them in the oven and crisped them up. Delicious!!
