READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by VickiVSN

These pancakes forgo the white flour, sugar, and oil with healthy substitutes. So good, the hubby won't even know the difference.

These were great! I used skim milk for the buttermilk, skipped the sugar & prune puree & topped with fresh fruit & a natural dark chocolate peanut butter spread. Wonderful!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix together dry ingredients.
  2. In a separate bowl lightly beat together egg, buttermilk, and apple butter (prune puree may be substituted for any pureed fruit or fat replacement product).
  3. Mix dry and wet together.
  4. Let stand a few minutes for oat bran to absorb the liquid. Preheat griddle to medium high.
  5. Spray with non-stick spray, scoop about 1/3 cup of batter onto griddle. Optionally, add fresh fruit such as bananas or blueberries to pancake at this point. When starts to bubble, flip and cook a minute more.
