  1. Combine baking mix, sugar substitute, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. In another large bowl, whisk together eggs, soy milk, butter, and vanilla. Pour egg mixture into dry mixture; stir until combined, and then add cinnamon, nutmeg, and pecans. Stir again and let stand 5 minutes.
  2. Mist a 12-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Scooping from the bottom, pour 1 heaping tablespoon of batter into pan; use the back of the spoon to spread into a 4-inch circle. Repeat 3 times; cook until small bubbles form at edges of pancakes and bottoms are golden brown, about 3 minutes. Flip; cook until browned on reverse side, about 2 minutes.
  3. Repeat with remaining batter. Keep cooked pancakes warm in a 200°F oven while continuing to cook more batches, and serve them as soon as possible.
  4. Serve with sugar-free pancake syrup or another low-carb topping.
