King Cake Pancakes

2 c. Heart Smart Bisquick
1 c. milk, 1%
2 eggs
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
zest of 1/2 of a lemon
purple, green and yellow food coloring

Heat a large skillet to medium heat. In a medium size bowl, combine the above ingredients (minus the coloring) and whisk until smooth. Divide into 3 even parts. Color each bowl with yellow, green or purple food color. Mix together well. Spray the skillet well with non stick cooking spray. Drop about 2 Tbs. worth of batter  per pancake. Check with a spatula to see when the bottom side gets golden (this batter won't take long, and doesn't bubble much), and flip over to the other side. Each side only takes about 45 seconds to a minute and a half. Repeat until all of the batter is gone.

For the icing drizzle, combine 1 cup of powdered sugar with the juice of half of a lemon, about 1 tablespoon or less of water (eyeball for consistency), and a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg. Drizzle on top of the pancakes before serving.

(Makes approximately 6 servings, 5 WW points per serving)
