Looking for a low calorie way to enjoy some pancakes?
I found this sweet recipe in my Hungry Girl 300 Under 300 cookbook.
1/3 C whole-wheat flour
2 tbsp old-fashioned oats
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 no-calorie sweetner packet (I used Stevia)
1/4 C fat-free liquid egg substitute
1 tbsp light vanilla soymilk
2 tbsp sugar-free strawberry preserves (I used SimplyFruit to avoid more artificial sweetners)
1/2 C sliced strawberries
1/4 C cool whip free, thawed
Combine flour, oats, baking powder, sweetner, and salt in a bowl. Add egg substitute, soymilk, and 2 tablespoons water. Mix well and set aside.
Place preserves in a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 20 seconds, until softened and warm. Stir into pancake batter until thoroughly mixed.
Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat on the stove. Add half the batter to form a large pancake. Cook for 2 - 3 minutes, until pancake begins to bubble and is solid enough to flip. Gently flip and cook for 1-2 minutes until both sides are lightly browned. Repeat with the second pancake.
Combine strawberries with cool whip in a bowl and lightly stir. Spoon mixture evenly over a pancake, and then place the second pancake lightly on top.
