Sift the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and sugar into a batter bowl or mixing bowl.
Make a depression or well with your spoon in the center of those dry ingredients in the bowl.
Add the applesauce, buttermilk, and canola oil to the well.
Stir everything together just until moistened. The batter will be quite thick.
Lightly spray the griddle ,as well as the cookie cutter or pancake mold, with cooking spray, and heat to a moderate temperature.
Place the greased cookie cutter on the griddle, and spoon the pancake batter into the cookie cutter, spreading the batter out to the edges with your spoon.
Cook the pancake for about 1 to 2 minutes, and then you can just remove the cutter.
Cook the pancake another couple minutes and flip it. Allow it to cook on low to medium heat until the edges begin to turn a golden color.
When your pancakes are cooked through, serve them while warm.*
