Low Fat (but yummy) Barley Pancakes

These pancakes taste great and have no added fat. I eat them with homemade applesauce and pure maple syrup and never miss the melted butter I used to pour on pancakes. Besides tasting great, barley is good for you.

Sift or mix together:
2 cups barley flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

In a separate bowl beat:
2 egg yolks
1 Tbs pure maple syrup
2 cups 2% milk

Add flour mixture to liquids and mix quickly. Do not over beat.

Beat until stiff and then fold into batter:
2 egg whites

I bake these in a hot cast iron skillet but use whatever non-stick or well seasoned griddle or pan you usually use for pancakes.
