Better Blueberry Pancakes

From The Biggest Loser Cookbook


Better Blueberry PancakesIf you're as big a fan of these pancakes as my brunching-buddies and I are, rest assured that you can double, triple or even quadruple this recipe with great success and the batter will keep in your refrigerator for up to 3 days I personally like to mix them fresh and enjoy them with a friend…otherwise, I find myself tempted to eat more than one serving.

  • 2 servings; eight 3" pancakes
  • ½ cup reduced-fat buttermilk
  • ½ cup whole grain oat flour
  • 1 large egg white, lightly beaten
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup fresh or frozen (not thawed) blueberries
  • Butter-flavored cooking spray
  • I Can't Believe It's Not Butter® Spray (optional)
  • Sugar-free, low-calorie pancake syrup (optional)
  • 100% fruit orange marmalade spread (optional)

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until it is hot enough for a spritz of water to sizzle on it. With an oven mitt, briefly remove the pan from the heat to mist lightly with cooking spray. Return the pan to the heat. Pour the batter in 1/8 cup dollops onto the skillet to form 3 or 4 pancakes. Cook for about 2 minutes, or until bubbles appear on the tops and the bottoms are golden brown. Flip. Cook for about 2 minutes, or until browned on the bottom. Transfer to an oven-proof plate. Cover with aluminum foil. Place in the oven to keep warm. With an oven mitt, briefly remove the pan from the heat to mist lightly with cooking spray. Return the pan to the heat. Repeat the procedure with the remaining batter to make 8 pancakes total.

Place 4 pancakes on each of 2 serving plates. Serve immediately with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter® Spray and/or syrup or fruit spread if desired.
