You can have your pancakes and eat them too!

I'm just gonna say it: This morning I wanted pancakes, damn it. I've been bustin' my butt doin' Bootcamp 3 times a week for the last month and I was gonna make myself some egg whites and ground turkey ('cause THAT sounds fun...) and I thought to myself: ARE YOU CRAZY!?!?! YOU GOTTA EAT SOMETHIN' REAL!

And darlins, they were DELICIOUS:


I cup Bisquick Heart Smart® Pancake and Baking Mix
a little less than a 3/4 cup of water
1/4 cup of egg whites or Egg Beaters
4 large strawberries, sliced thin (optional, of course)

Whisk it all together and pour individuals cakes onto the griddle.

As soon as bubbles start to pop through the surface, flip and lighting brown on the other side. Done.

Personally, next I topped with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!® (Did you see my Bobby Deen is now their spokesperson?) and Mrs. Butterworth's Sugar Free Syrup. (It has 80% fewer calories and 1/2 the carbs of regular syrup.)

I'm happy, full AND satisfied because I got what I want and I don't feel guilty about it.

...now if they can figure out how to make zero calorie Wimberley Wine, I'll be all set...
