How to Make It

  1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a medium bowl; make a well in center of mixture. Combine buttermilk and next 3 ingredients. Add buttermilk mixture to dry ingredients, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.

  2. Heat a nonstick griddle or nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat. For each pancake, pour 1/4 cup batter onto hot griddle, spreading to a 5-inch circle. Cook pancakes until tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked; turn pancakes, and cook other side.

  3. Serve with maple syrup and fresh fruit, if desired (syrup and fruit not included in analysis).

  4. Tip: One tablespoon of sugar-free maple syrup has 8 calories and 3 grams of carbohydrate.
