Buttermilk Pancakes

This recipe for pancakes is very low in cholesterol and saturated fat!  It does contain lean albumin protein from egg whites, healthy monosaturates from canola oil, and a wealth of nutrients from 1% buttermilk.  In addition, the slow-burning carbs from flour prevent you from becoming hungry again shortly after eating.  Add a healthy and delicious syrup made from fruit or berries, and you’re set until supper time.
