We've made a bazillion strawberry shortcake desserts, so now we're moving on to breakfast. When we make faux-fried strawberry shortcakes, THEN you can start to worry...

Ingredients:
1/3 cup whole-wheat flour
2 tbsp. old-fashioned oats
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 no-calorie sweetener packet (like Splenda)
Dash salt
1/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
1 tbsp. light vanilla soymilk
2 tbsp. sugar-free strawberry preserves
1/2 cup sliced strawberries
1/4 cup Cool Whip Free, thawed
Optional: Fat Free Reddi-wip, sugar-free pancake syrup

Directions:
To make the batter, combine flour, oats, baking powder, sweetener, and salt in a bowl. Add egg substitute, soymilk, and 2 tbsp. water. Mix well and set aside.

Place preserves in a microwave-safe bowl and nuke for 20 seconds, until softened and warm. Stir into pancake batter until thoroughly integrated.

Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add half the batter to form a large pancake. Cook for 2 - 3 minutes, until pancake begins to bubble and is solid enough to flip. Gently flip and cook for an additional 1 - 2 minutes, until both sides are lightly browned and inside is cooked through. Plate your pancake and set aside.

Remove skillet from heat, re-spray, and return to medium-high heat. Repeat with remaining batter to make a second pancake, and then set that aside as well.

While pancakes cool slightly, combine strawberries with Cool Whip in a bowl and lightly stir. Spoon this mixture evenly over one pancake, and then place the second pancake lightly on top.

If you like, add a squirt of Reddi-wip and a drizzle of pancake syrup. Woohoo!

Melty, chocolatey s'mores in pancake form?! S'mokin'!!!!!

Ingredients:
1/3 cup whole-wheat flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 no-calorie sweetener packet (like Splenda)
Dash salt
1/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
1 tbsp. light vanilla soymilk
1/2 tbsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
10 mini marshmallows, halved
1/2 tbsp. Hershey's Lite chocolate syrup
2 tbsp. Fat Free Reddi-wip
1/2 sheet (2 crackers) low-fat honey graham crackers, crushed

Directions:
To make the batter, combine flour, baking powder, sweetener, and salt in a bowl. Add egg substitute, soymilk, and 2 tbsp. water. Mix thoroughly. Stir in chocolate chips. Stir in halved marshmallows, adding them slowly and individually so they don't stick to each other.

Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add half the batter to form a large pancake. Cook for 2 - 3 minutes, until pancake begins to bubble and is solid enough to flip. Gently flip and cook for an additional 1 - 2 minutes, until both sides are lightly browned and inside is cooked through. Plate your pancake and set aside.

Remove skillet from heat, re-spray, and return to medium-high heat. Repeat with remaining batter to make a second pancake. Stack your pancakes and top them with chocolate syrup, Reddi-wip, and crushed graham crackers. Enjoy!!!
