it must be only in america that you can find "I can't believe it's not butter" spray. I know this butter, but to turn it into spray is going too far away.
No offense, but in my country (switzerland) you can't buy half of these products and people are really less fat than in america.
keep in mind that you can eat real butter, real milk, and so one, and be thin!!!
it will taste sooo good that you will be able to not snack betwenn meals (because you know you will have later a delicious pasta plate) and that fat in food leave you satisfied earlier, (because it taste good enough to not eat all the baking trail).
Food is not so complicated.
BUT it is true i should shed a few pounds because I ate too much chocolate lately.

yummy. it really only makes 3 each 3-4" round pancakes, but either way, it's good. if your on WW, you can eat the entire batch (2 servings) for only 6.5 points. Add another point if you use 1/4C sugar free syrup. It's very filling and I recommend these.

But I'm confused by the recipe above. I only got 4 pancakes. Are they supposed to be silver dollar sized pancakes? Then I might be able to get 2, 4 pancake servings.

I also think the baking powder taste comes through too strongly. Has anyone tried baking powder?

These are pretty scrumptious. We top ours with honey!

Maybe try using some fruit or jam spread that will help curb the sugar Matt, just as yummy!
