Frugal Apple Pancakes With Cinnamon Nonfat Yogurt

1 c. all-purpose flour
3 tbsps. nonfat egg substitute
1 1/2 c.s nonfat plain yogurt
1/2 tes baking powder
3 tbsps. orange juice
3 tbsps. maple syrup
4 granny smith apples
or other tart apples
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
mint leaves

Combine the flour, egg substitute, 1 c. yogurt, baking powder, orange
juice, and 2 tbsps. maple syrup into a batter. If you like thinner
pancakes, add 2 to 4 tbsps. of water at this point. Let rest for
1/2 hour. Meanwhile, in a nonstick skillet, saute the sliced apples with 1
tbsp. water until the slices are tender and caramelized. Combine the
remaining yogurt and maple syrup with the cinnamon. Using a nonstick
omelette pan, make thin crepes by pouring 3 tbsps. of the batter into
the preheated pan and rolling it around to uniformly cover the surface of
the pan. Cook over medium heat about 1 minute, flip with a spatula
and cook the other side for about 10 seconds. Continue until all the
batter has been used. For each serving, roll each of two crepes around 2
tbsps. of the apples. Garnish with a dollop of flavored yogurt and a
mint leaf. 278 calories, 1.2 grams fat per 3 (4- to 5-inch) pancakes
