Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes

I joined Weight Watchers 2 1/2 years ago and I lost 43 pounds. I have been able to maintain my weight for 18 months...I love the program and would recommend it to everyone. Upon joining I hunted high and low for recipes that I could eat, especially ones that had the point value already figured out...mainly so I didn't have to figure it out myself. At our meetings each week we all talked about and swapped our new weight loss tricks as well as recipes...thats where this little dandy came into play. It's a delicious pancake recipe that someone gave me at one of our meetings. I tried it out on my family and NO one thought it could be classified as a "diet food". These pancakes are wonderful and I make them all the time. Everyone in the family comments on how fluffy they are, as well as how delicious they taste. Eat up!!

Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes

2 c. flour
4 T. sugar
2 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
3-4 c. buttermilk (depends on how thin you like your batter)
2 T oil
2 eggs

Combine all ingredient into a mixing bowl and stir until well blended. Add more buttermilk if you like a thinner batter (thinner pancake). Spray non-stick cooking spray on a griddle or large frying pan. Pour batter onto hot griddle and turn when top is covered with bubbles and edges are cooked. Top with butter and syrup or your favorite pancake topping.
* I have halved the recipe for a smaller batch, this recipe makes quite a few.

Serving size: 3 (4 inch) pancakes Weight Watcher Points Per Serving: 6 pts.
***Butter and Syrup add extra points...add those accordingly
These pancakes are for EVERYONE not just those on Weight Watchers...they taste like a million bucks!

Happy Cooking~

  3. I like making the big batch and then freezing the pancakes. I put them in big freezer bags, placing wax paper between layers so they don't stick. I make sure that the bag is laying flat when I put them in initially, but once the pancakes have frozen flat, you can put the bag on its side or however you need to so it fits in your freezer.
    That way I can take out a pancake or 2 and nuke them when I want some. They are a great treat and a wonderful snack with some peanut butter. Good stuff! Thanks for sharing.
