These pancakes satisfy the carb cravings while sneaking in protein. They are Weight Watchers friendly and the whole recipe is only 8 points on WW Freestyle. Even if you eat them all, that's not too bad!
To keep the points low, I cook them in my cast iron skillet. I give a quick spray of cooking spray beginning and don't need to use any additional oil.
They get the peanut butter flavor from using powdered peanut butter, I like PBFit. When it's mixed it tastes very similar to peanut butter in my opinion. I also mix it up to have with celery as a low-fat snack. Even my dog loves it! The PBFit also adds extra protein to these pancakes.
The recipe makes 4 medium-sized pancakes, using 1/3 cup batter for each. I split the recipe with my husband and we have two. I top mine with a low fat berry cream and he puts as much butter and syrup on his as he likes. His are a little less WW friendly :)
1/2 cup Krusteaz Protein Butermilk pancake mix
4 Tbsp of PBFit powdered peanut butter
2/3 cup of water
1 tsp of ground cinnamon
Turn on oven to medium-high temperature and heat up your cast iron skillet. When the pan is heated, turn the heat down to medium. In a medium sized mixing bowl, whisk together all ingredients.
Makes 4 pancakes. Each pancake is 2 points on WW freestyle and it's 8 points for the whole recipe.
Top as desired, I suggest this one point berry cream topping!
