• 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup
• 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
• 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1 pinch ground cinnamon

2. Spray a large, nonstick sauté pan with the cooking spray and heat to low/medium heat for about 1 minute. Once the pan is fully heated, spoon in 1/4 cup of batter.

3. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes on the first side and then flip to cook the other side for 2 to 3 minutes. You'll want to move quickly when flipping with a spatula.

4. Plate the pancakes and top with fresh blueberries.
