Use a non fat cooking spray on a hot pan over medium high heat.  Scoop 2 tbsp onto pan for each pancake. Flip once golden.

They are done once both sides are golden.

While pancakes are cooking mix together your blueberries & syrup. Cook over medium heat until blueberries are bursting open.  I used frozen blueberries & my syrup was pretty thin. I think next time I will try fresh to see if it ends up thicker.

I served mine with country chicken sausage & fruit salad.
Enjoy!
