nonstick cooking spray
3 egg whites
1 cup flour
1 cup fat-free milk
1 teaspoon low-sodium baking powder
1 tablespoon canola oil

  2. In a medium mixing bowl, whip the egg whites until bubbly and fluffy.
  3. In another medium mixing bowl, combine flour, milk, baking powder and oil.
  4. Gently fold egg whites in mixture made in step 2.
  5. Pour 1/4 cup batter for each pancake into preheated skillet. When edges begin to brown and batter has bubbles that are popping, flip and cook another 2 to 3 minutes or until lightly browned.
  6. Serve warm.

pancakes with blueberries
To make an easy fruit “syrup,” simply place 1 cup of frozen blueberries or strawberries in the microwave and cook on high, stirring every minute until defrosted and warmed through. Pour over pancakes and enjoy!
