Apple Nut Pancakes

Something Brad and I love are homemade pancakes on the weekend. We've tried a lot of pancakes, and let me just say that these are the best I've ever put in my mouth! They are so scrumptious. They just melt in your mouth, and the chunks of apple are amazing. You've got to try these!

1 cup all purpose flour
2 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tbsp. sugar
2 apples, peeled, cored and chopped
1 cup milk
2 egg whites
2 tbsp. applesauce
1 tbsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (I used cinnamon instead)
1 cup walnuts, chopped for garnish
maple syrup
whipped cream (I left this out)

Preheat griddle over medium heat and coat with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, salt, baking powder, sugar, and apples.

In a separate larger bowl, combine milk, egg whites, applesauce, vanilla extract and pumpkin pie spice (or cinnamon). Pour dry ingredients into wet ingredients and stir to combine. Pour 1/4 cup batter at a time onto griddle; cook for 3 minutes. Once the sides and top of pancake begin to bubble, flip and cook another 3 minutes.

To serve, place pancakes on a serving dish and sprinkle with walnuts, maple syrup, and a dollop of whipped cream.

I haven't had pancakes for a few months - maybe I should make some of these this weekend!

Am i seeing the ingredients correctly? is it really 2 tsps. salt? This just seems like a lot for pancakes.
