Apple Pancakes

My son loves bread and anything bread-like. Fruits and vegetables; not so much. He will eat applesauce, dried apricots and raisins and will take exactly one bite of any other produce that I put on his plate (our rule is take one bite of each food on your plate and you are done). Because of this I try to sneak in fruits and vegetables by putting them in food he likes.

A great way to do this is pancakes which is one of his favorites. Here is my recipe:

1/2 cup Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 cup All Purpose Flour
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1 Large Egg
1 Cup Milk
2 tablespoons Olive Oil
3 Tablespoon Ground Flax Seed
3 Apples (pureed)

Mix dry ingredients together in a bowl. Mix wet ingredients together in a separate bowl (including apple puree). Mix everything together until just blended. Pour by 1/4 cup fulls onto hot skillet (I usually cook at 325-350 degrees). Flip pancakes when edges look dry. Cook until golden brown and once done remove from heat and serve healthy meal to unsuspecting children.

You can pretty much use whatever fruit you want instead of apples, but if you are going to use vegetables I would maybe add a little sugar.
