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.
