  1. For topping

    Mix sour cream, zest and sugar in a bowl until smooth; refrigerate.

  2. For pancakes

    Combine flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a bowl. Make a well in the center of flour mixture. Place egg white, honey, chocolate chips and milk in well. Stir liquid with a wooden spoon until flour is just combined. Heat a griddle over medium heat and coat with cooking spray.

Top with a spoonful of sour cream mixture and berries.
