Light and Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes

Serves 4


  • 1 large egg, beaten

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 tablespoon granular sugar substitute

  • 1 cup buttermilk

  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil

  • Olive or canola oil cooking spray


  1. In a medium bowl, mix dry ingredients. Add buttermilk and oil and stir until combined. Let batter rest five minutes. Heat a griddle over medium heat, and lightly coat with cooking spray. If using an electric griddle, while batter rests, preheat electric griddle to 375°F and lightly coat with cooking spray. Reduce griddle temperature to 360°F - 370°F after you begin cooking the pancakes.

  2. Pour ¼ cup batter onto griddle and cook until bubbles form on edges of pancake. Flip and cook on second side until done. Repeat for the rest of the pancakes.
