What a way to wake up your family on a Saturday morning than with the fresh smell of Grammie’s Applesauce Pancakes cooking in your kitchen. Believe me, they will come running from their beds. My husband and I usually set aside one weekend per month to have a few – well, more than a few – of our 7 grandchildren stay for sleepovers. We do the whole thing; play games, watch movies, and build tents out of all the furniture and every extra sheet I can find. It’s an adventure and it’s where we all sack out! Well, that is…my husband (Pepere’) does the camping out. He’s the trooper, he will sleep anywhere! Breakfast is ordered the night before and it’s always pancakes. Each time they stay I try to make a new version; and this time, it was Grammie’s AppleSauce Pancakes!
Grammie's AppleSauce Pancakes are one of my grandchildren's favorite things to have on sleep-over nights! Make sure to get your fill before the hungry bellies in your house get their plates fixed.

*Any gluten-free flour may be used. **I used applesauce that I jarred up this past fall from apples we picked at our local orchard - made without added sugars. If you use store bought try to get the organic no sugar added. ***Club Soda is one of my little secret ingredients. It makes the pancakes fluffier!
When you’re in the kitchen whipping up these Grammie’s AppleSauce Pancakes for all those sleeping under a field of tents throughout the house, and it’s still quiet…grab a few for yourself and get fueled up for the masses that are going to attack once the aroma gets past the kitchen. If there are any leftovers, they’re great cold or with some peanut butter and jelly smothered over the top as a snack. Me…I eat these right off the plate, no syrup needed!
