Canola oil spray tsp salt
cup all-purpose white flour 1 large egg
cup whole-wheat pastry flour    1 cups nonfat buttermilk
cup finely ground corn meal    1 Tbsp canola oil
1 Tbsp sugar       1 cups all-fruit strawberry preserves
1 tsp baking powder      cup apple juice
tsp baking soda      1 cups sliced strawberries

1. Coat the frying pan or griddle with canola oil spray.  Whisk together the flours and cornmeal.  Add the sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Set the mixture aside.
2. In another bowl, lightly beat the egg.  Add the buttermilk and canola oil.
3. Combine the liquid ingredients with the dry.  Whisk to blend.  The batter may contain small lumps.  Heat the frying pan or griddle over medium-high heat.  Work in batches and use a measuring cup to pour a small cup of batter onto the hot griddle (1/4 cup of batter equals 1 pancake).  When bubbles form on top, flip the pancakes over.  Cook until they are golden on both sides, using more cooking spray for additional batches if necessary.
4. While the pancakes are cooking, place the strawberry preserves and apple juice in a sauce pan on low heat.  Add the sliced strawberries, stir, and heat for 1 minute.  Keep the strawberry sauce warm while finishing the pancakes.  Place the finished pancakes on a platter. Spoon the warm strawberry sauce over the top.  Top with fresh strawberries.
