Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups fresh or frozen strawberries
  • 2 T reduced-sugar preserves, any flavor
  • 1 cup buckwheat pancake mix, instant
  • 1/4 cup light sour cream or low-fat vanilla yogurt

Directions

  1. In a saucepan, mix berries and preserves and cook about 5 minutes. Set aside and keep warm.
  2. In a bowl, combine pancake mix and make a slightly thin batter. Pour 1/3 cup onto griddle or into large nonstick pan (sprayed with cooking spray) so that the pancake covers about 5-6 inches in diameter.
  3. Cook until edges are dry, then flip and cook until done. Repeat with the rest of the batter.
  4. Place 1/4 cup of the berry mixture into the center of each pancake, and roll. Transfer to a plate and serve with sour cream or yogurt on top, drizzled with remaining strawberry mixture.
