Light Cranberry Orange Pancakes | If you love the flavors of cranberry and orange then you are going to love these pancakes. Made with wheat flour and just a touch of white flour makes these pancakes healthier than most recipes. Packed with so much flavor you won’t even need syrup. 2 – 4-inch pancakes are 155 calories. (1/4 cup of batter)
You can use dried orange peel instead of fresh and add more cranberries for extra flavor. When I make this recipe I usually triple the recipe. I can get 36 pancake from using a 1/4 measuring cup. So I freeze 2 dozen and keep the other dozen in the refrigerator. To re heat just toast in a toaster. They come out nice and crispy that way. You can also use the microwave but I like the way they turn out by using a toaster better.
