Corncake coins

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes

3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon Splenda, No Calorie Sweetener, granular
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 egg whites
1/2 cup skim milk
2 tablespoons canola oil
Nonstick cooking spray

Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Combine egg whites, skim milk, and canola oil in a separate bowl with a whisk, then add to dry ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon. Heat an electric griddle or nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat, until water dripped onto the surface bubbles rapidly and evaporates (about 325°F for the electric griddle). Spray with nonstick cooking spray, then spoon rounded tablespoons of batter onto griddle or pan. Cook for about 2 minutes on each side until lightly browned. Place on a serving platter and repeat until all the batter is used.
