1 tsp. grated lemon zest

2 Tbsp. lemon juice

1 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted

1/4 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. baking powder

3 Tbsp. Splenda
(We used the box that measures cup for cup like sugar.)

3/4 cup whole wheat flour

1 scoop (1/3 cup) protein powder
(We used GNC 100% Whey Protein Vanilla.)

buttery cooking spray

6 egg whites

Maple Cream Syrup

1 cup fat free half & half

3 Tbsp. Splenda Brown Sugar Blend

1/2 tsp. maple flavored extract

1/2 tsp. cinnamon, ground

2 tsp. corn starch

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Then whisk together the first nine ingredients, skim milk through Splenda in a bowl. Slowly whisk in the whole wheat flour and protein powder until it's combined.

2. Spray a non-stick bundt cake pan with buttery cooking spray and set aside.

3. With an electric mixer, beat the six egg whites together in a separate glass or metal bowl until they start to form firm peaks.

4. Gently fold the whipped egg whites into the pancake batter bowl and stir lightly, until just combined. DO NOT OVERMIX.

5. Pour the mixture into the bundt pan, put it in the preheated oven and cook for 25 to 28 minutes, until the top is nicely browned.

(While the pancake is cooking you should make the maple cream syrup.)
