Pancakes with Apple Topping

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
Prepare the apple topping:

Add all ingredients to a sauce pan.


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:

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


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


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.


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


Spray a non-stick skillet and place over medium heat. Working in batches, add ΒΌ 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.
