  1. Combine flours, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg in medium bowl; mix well.
  2. Combine egg substitute, brown sugar and skim milk in covered container; shake until ingredients are blended.
  3. Gradually pour mixture into dry ingredients and mix until combined (do not overbeat). If batter is too thick, add a little more milk.
  4. Spray large nonstick skillet or griddle with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat.
  5. Scoop batter with 1/4 cup measuring cup and pour into hot skillet. Cook over medium heat until bubbles start to form on top; flip pancake and cook 1 to 2 minutes, until lightly browned on both sides.
  6. Place chunky-style applesauce in microwave-safe bowl; sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture and mix well. Cover and heat on High 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, until warmed. Serve with pancakes.
  7. Pancakes can be wrapped and refrigerated or frozen; heat applesauce just before serving pancakes.
  • Applesauce provides the same goodness of whole apples, especially when made with unpeeled apples.
