SmartPoints® value 5*

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes


1/3 cup yellow cornmeal

3 tbsp. whole-wheat flour

2 packets no-calorie sweetener (like Truvia)

1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

Dash salt

1 tbsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread

1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

1/4 tsp. vanilla extract

1/4 cup frozen sweet corn kernels

Optional topping: lite or sugar-free pancake syrup


In a medium bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, sweetener, baking powder, and salt.

Place butter in a microwave-safe medium bowl. Microwave for 10 seconds, or until melted.

Add almond milk and vanilla extract to the melted butter. Stir until uniform.

Add butter/milk mixture to the cornmeal mixture, and mix until uniform. Gently fold in corn kernels.

Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Add half of the batter to form two medium pancakes (about 1/4 cup each). Cook until pancakes begin to bubble and are solid enough to flip, 3 - 4 minutes.

Very gently flip (they’re fragile), and cook until both sides are lightly browned and the inside is cooked through, about 2 minutes.

Plate your pancakes. Remove skillet from heat, re-spray, and return to medium heat. Repeat with remaining batter to make 2 more pancakes. (Keep an eye on ‘em… They’ll likely cook faster than the first batch.)
