A healthier twist on pancackes. Each of these packs good fiber and protein and only about 50 calories! My husband and 11 year old son said these were the best pancakes ever!
Number of Servings: 32

Ingredients

    1 1/2 cup whole white wheat flour (we use King Arthur)
    2 scoops (40gm) high quality protein powder or additional 1/3 c whole wheat flour
    3 T. sugar
    1/4 tsp. salt
    4 tsp. Fiber-sure (Inulin), optional
    4 tsp. baking powder
    1 T. cinnamon
    2 eggs, beaten (we use Eggland's Best)
    1.5 cups milk
    2 T. light corn syrup
    3 T. Olivio spread, melted
    1 T. vanilla extract

Directions

Combine all dry ingredients in a medium bowl. In a separate bowl combine eggs, milk, corn syrup, Olivio and vanilla extract, mix well. Stir the liquid into the flour mixture. Heat skillet over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray. *****Use approximately 1/8 cup (2T.) batter for each pancake- this batter is relatively thin so 1/8 cup should spread to about 4 inches- careful if you pour the batter- it is easy to pour more and get fewer, larger pancakes!! ***** Cook until top surface is bubbly and edges appear dry. Turn and cook to brown the other side. Because of the whole wheat flour and cinnamon these pancakes are naturally darker.



Makes 32 - 4 inch pancakes. These pancakes freeze well and can be reheated in the microwave for a quick weekday breakfast



Note added 4/12/09: Lots of people are commenting on not getting 32 pancakes. When I make these pancakes I actually use a tablespoon to pour out the batter- 2T per pancake - and I consistently get 32- 4 inch pancakes. If you are using the extra whole wheat flour instead of the protein powder the batter may be thicker - a good suggestion was made by reviewer RISUMCQ to add 1/3 cup more milk. I made them this way to check and I only got 30 pancakes, even when I measured by tablespoon, so the substitutions does seem to make a difference. Even so, the calorie count made this way is only about 60 calories per pancake. Hope this helps!


Serving suggestion: Stir a handful of blueberries and 1/2 small sliced banana and 1 tsp of chopped peacans into a scant 1/2 cup of batter. Use 1/4 of mixture for each pancake and cook as above. Moist/sweet pancake need no syrup- and the fruit and nuts add less than 100 cal so this makes a great breakfast for less than 300 cal.

    I don't think the nutritional information is correct, as milk isn't included in the Ingredients Details. I think these might be a little more calorific than stated, particularly as other users aren't able to get 32 pancakes from the mixture. - 2/21/09

    You were absolutely correct- thanks for picking up on the fact that milk was left out of the calorie calculations- I fixed it and did add a several calories per pancake. If people are getting fewer pancakes from the recipe they should also adjust the calories. Hope this helps!

    These were good but I could only get 26 out of my batter. I used honey instead of Karo and I added extra fiber. - 2/16/09

    I love the idea of honey instead of the Karo syrup- I will try this next time I make them and if they work out as well I will change the recipe- great way to make them even more healthy!

    Read that people were having trouble getting 32 pancakes, so when my batter seemed quite thick instead of pretty thin, I added about 1/3 C. more milk. Came out perfectly -- 32 wonderful pancakes! Hubby, grandkids & I all loved them - and now there are some in the freezer for another morning! - 2/15/09

    These were very good. Light and fluffy. I didn't have the spread either so I used canola oil. I also didn't have the whole wheat white flour, but substituted whole wheat pastry flour. We will make this again and again and again! - 5/25/08

    I have a question for LyNNJUMP, how did you end up getting 32 pancakes out of the receipe. I made it this morning (amazing by the way), and could only get 20. And they were nice and fluffy. - 4/13/08

    I ended up cutting the recipe in half since it is just me and my husband that would be eating it. I didn't have the olivio spread so I used 1 tbs melted butter instead. They were very fluffy and moist. I'll try them with fruit next time! - 4/7/08

  • I made this recipe this morning and it was wonderful, I made
    a few changes, I did not have white wheat flour, so I used whole wheat flour and 1/3 c. of soy flour and used splenda as the sweeter, sugar free da-vinci syrup and half-half for milk. They turned out GREAT! Thank you - 7/27/09

    These sound pretty good! I will tweak the recipe for personal preference (I don't eat corn syrup, and will make them lower in fat). All in all, though, they sound great! - 3/19/09
