Applesauce Pancakes

So, I've got all this leftover applesauce (Drew does not like anything apple) and I am trying to be creative about using it up without Drew noticing it. I decided to make pancakes with it and they turned out really well; and of course very easy. I had Hungry Jack pancake mix on hand (the kind you just add water to), so I used that. For 6-8 pancakes it normally calls for 1 cup of mix and 3/4 cup of water. Instead, I took one package of applesauce, which turned out to be a 1/2 cup. I used a 1/2 cup of water with that, because if I used any less the mixture would have been too thick. I slightly oiled my nonstick pan and made several small pancakes. I cut one pancake up into small squares for breakfast and froze the leftovers.
If you have a creative way to disguise applesauce in baby food I would love to hear about it!


  1. I mixed apples with my squash yesterday with some cinnamon and Collin loved it! It goes great with chicken too.

  2. I often replace applesauce for oil/butter in baking recipes. I made banana bread with applesauce for Wesley (9months)and he LOVES it. made part of the batch in mini muffins and the other in a small loaf pan, I've been slicing pieces from the loaf and cutting into small cubes and he gobbles it up!
