Recipe By Fit Staff

Heading back to school? Don’t forget a good breakfast is the way to start the day. Adding some low-fat high fiber granola to the batter makes these even better.


  • ½ cup low-fat sour cream
  • ½ cup of freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 1 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of orange zest


    1. Beat the sour cream and eggs in a bowl. Add the orange juice and half the orange zest. Stir in slowly to prevent curdling.
    2. Add the flour and sugar stirring carefully until well-mixed.
    3. Preheat a non-stick pan or griddle. When the pan is hot, pour silver-dollar-sized pancakes. Watch for small bubbles to form on the surface as a sign for ready to be flipped. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side.
    4. Garnish with remaining orange zest.
