Ingredients
For the pancakes:
 ¾ cup old fashioned oats
 ¼ cup flaxseed (can use full cup of oats if you don't have flax)
 1 cup whole wheat flour
 1 tsp baking powder
 ½ tsp salt
 2 large eggs, whites separated from yolks
 1 ½ cups 1% milk
 3 tbsp melted butter
 3 tbsp sugar
For the topping:
 3 cups diced apples (about 2 apples)
  cup water
 2 tsp maple syrup
Method
Prepare the apple topping:
1

Add all ingredients to a sauce pan.

2

2. Cook the fruit over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until it begins to break down and the sauce thickens slightly, about 10-15 minutes.

Prepare the pancakes:
3

Pulse the oats and flaxseed in a blender or food processor until finely ground; transfer to a large bowl.

4

Add the flour, baking powder and salt and whisk until well combined.

5

Whisk the 2 egg yolks and milk in a separate bowl; add the dry ingredients along with the melted butter and whisk until just smooth.

6

Beat the 2 egg whites and sugar in another bowl with a mixer until medium peaks form, fold into the batter until just combined.

7

Spray a non-stick skillet and place over medium heat. Working in batches, add ¼ cup batter for each pancake and cook until bubbly on top, then flip and cook until golden brown on the other side, about 3 minutes per side. Spray with non-stick spray between batches if needed.

Top pancakes with apple topping and serve immediately.
