1⁄2 cup reduced-fat buttermilk
1⁄2 cup whole-grain oat flour
1 large egg white, lightly beaten
1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
1⁄4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1⁄4 teaspoon salt
I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! spray
1⁄2 cup fresh or frozen (not thawed) blueberries
Sugar-free, low-calorie pancake syrup (optional)
100%-fruit orange marmalade spread (optional)
- Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.
- In a small bowl, combine the buttermilk, flour, egg white, baking soda, vanilla, and salt. Whisk just until blended. Stir in the blueberries. Let stand for 10 minutes.
- Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until it is hot enough for a spritz of water to sizzle on it. With an oven mitt, briefly remove the pan from the heat to mist lightly with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! cooking spray. Return the pan to the heat. Pour the batter in 1⁄8-cup dollops onto the skillet to form 3 or 4 pancakes. Cook for about 2 minutes, or until bubbles appear on the tops and the bottoms are golden brown. Flip. Cook for about 2 minutes, or until browned on the bottom. Transfer to an oven-proof plate. Cover with aluminum foil. Place in the oven to keep warm. Repeat with cooking spray and the remaining batter to make 8 pancakes total.
- Place 4 pancakes on each of 2 serving plates. Serve immediately with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! spray, syrup, and/or fruit spread, if desired.

Says Alexander: "When people hear that I’m a 'healthy chef,' they often assume I’m a vegetarian, which, to anyone who knows me, is a ridiculous notion. I love meat ... all kinds, really, but this pork roast is of my favorites. In fact, my friend Marjorie and I made this roast one night and we loved it so much we wanted to eat the whole thing. When cooked right, this is as tender as can be."
