If you can't find pecans, substitute any of your favorite nuts! (NOTE: did not include plain non-fat yogurt, sour cream or applesauce)

What you'll need

  • 1/2 cup potato granules
  • 1 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 2 large whole eggs and 4 egg whites
  • 2 tsp. granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup peeled and grated Granny Smith or Golden Delicious apple
  • 1/4 cup pecans
  • 1 container plain nonfat yogurt, sour cream, or applesauce (optional)


  • Step 1
    To prepare the potatoes, add potato granules to a medium-sized bowl. Gradually pour the boiling water over the potato granules, whisking continuously to mix and whip.
  • Step 2
    In a small bowl, beat together the eggs, sugar, and cinnamon. Beat into the potatoes. Fold in the grated apple and chopped pecans.
  • Step 3
    Bring a nonstick skillet or griddle treated with nonstick spray to temperature over medium heat. (If using an electric griddle, preheat to 350-380 degrees Fahrenheit)
  • Step 4
    Cook the pancakes on both sides until golden brown. Serve hot, plain or topped with plain nonfat yogurt, sour cream, or applesauce.
