8 servings


  • 3 medium bananas, peeled and sliced

  • ½ cup fresh blueberries

  • ¼ cup sugar-free maple-flavor syrup

  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 cup flour

  • ½ cup quick-cooking rolled oats

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup low-fat buttermilk or sour milk (see Tip)

  • ¼ cup refrigerated or frozen egg product, thawed or 1 large egg, lightly beaten

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

  • 1 tablespoon sugar-free maple-flavor syrup

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. For maple fruit, stir together bananas, blueberries, the 1/4 cup syrup, the lemon juice, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Set aside.

  2. Stir together flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Use a fork to combine buttermilk, egg, oil, 1 tablespoon syrup, and the vanilla in a medium bowl. Add buttermilk mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened. Let stand for 10 minutes to soften oats.

  3. For each pancake, spoon 2 slightly rounded tablespoons batter onto a hot, lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet; spread to a 3- to 4-inch circle. Cook over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until pancakes are golden brown. Turn over when edges are slightly dry and bottoms are browned. Serve warm topped with maple fruit.


Tip: To make 1 cup sour milk, place 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar in a glass measuring cup. Add enough fat-free milk to make 1 cup total liquid; stir. Let the mixture stand for 5 minutes before using.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
