Food as MedicineSM Tip

Raspberries contain ellagic acid, a powerful antioxidant that helps neutralize free radicals.

Culinary Taste Tip

Maple syrup — or the syrup of your choice — blends with the sweetness of berries and enhances their flavor.

Culinary Technique Tip

A ripe banana not only has more nutrients than unripened, but they mash much more easily for use in the pancake batter.


1 cup whole wheat pancake mix, such as Aunt Jemima brand
One-third cup mashed ripe banana
Three-quarter cup reduced-fat soy milk
2 egg whites, beaten
1 tablespoon cooking oil spray
Two-third cup pure maple syrup
1 and one-third cups fresh raspberries or blackberries or a combination
1 tablespoon thinly sliced mint leaves (optional)


In a large bowl, combine pancake mix, banana, soy milk, egg whites, and oil; mix just until large lumps disappear. Do not over mix or pancakes will be tough. Heat a large nonstick griddle or two nonstick skillets over medium heat until hot. Coat with cooking oil spray. Drop pancake batter by scant one-quarter cupfuls onto hot griddle. Turn when pancakes begin to bubble and bottoms are golden brown. Turn and continue to cook until the other side is golden brown, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Combine syrup and berries. Transfer pancakes to serving plates; top with berry mixture and garnish with mint, if desired.


Fat-free or 1% low-fat milk may replace soy milk, and blueberries may replace raspberries or blackberries. The dish will not be quite as pretty, but a sprinkle of fresh ground nutmeg or cinnamon can substitute for the mint; both are wonderful with banana and berries.

I loved this recipe and the tip about dropping a couple berries on the pancake while it cooks! I've made it three times already.
