Nothing says “weekend” like easy homemade pancakes for breakfast. More and more people are getting health conscious and veering away from the butter and maple syrup loaded pancakes. You know, the average pancakes we all grew up on.
Do you load your short stack up with butter and syrup? Or do you prefer your flapjacks with jam and whipped cream? Pancakes are just asking for fatty, sugary, sinful toppings. However, the delectably endless options don’t end there! You can get creative and forgo adding inches to your waistline by opting for whole wheat pancakes and equally yummy toppings that are actually quite good for you.
What is your favorite topping for a short stack? If you don’t see it in the list, add it. And don’t forget to VOTE!
You can still enjoy a short stack of sweet blueberry, raspberry, and blackberry hotcakes by pureeing your mixed berries in a blender and warming the mix in a pot on the stove. Add some stevia or a dab of honey for sweetness and drizzle away!
Nothing satisfies a hungry morning tummy faster than the Great Canadian taste of bacon and maple syrup—just substitutes the greasy bacon strips for the low fat, lean turkey variety and use 100% pure maple syrup.
Apples and cinnamon really do make spice and everything nice when it comes to a delicious pancake topper. Warm your apple topper by cutting it into slices, sprinkling with cinnamon, and baking in the oven on medium for 20-minutes.
The great thing about apple butter is that it’s made with 100% apples and nothing more! Add the protein-rich nutrition of a few slices of low fat sharp cheddar cheese and you have a balanced and nutritious breakfast.
