I'm not a big pancake fan, but every once in a while they sound good. However, pancakes have long been known as a diet no-no. However, thanks to General Mills, even dieters can enjoy pancakes from time to time.
General Mills Fiber One Complete Pancake Mix is made with whole grains--at least 10g per serving (a serving being 3 thick pancakes about 4" across), according to the box. This supplies 5g of fiber, which is 20% of your daily recommended amount. 3.5g of fat and no trans fats. The worst part is there are 36g of carbs--but some diet experts will tell you to subtract the fiber from that number because you need fiber, so really it's only 31. 4g of sugar and 6g of protein...in pancakes! We made ours with a few blueberries thrown in and added some sugar free pancake syrup.
Of course, how good can whole grain pancakes be? I'll tell ya, these things are good. They have a different texture than regular pancakes for sure; it's almost like a light biscuit texture. It's not tough and grainy like some whole grain products can be. I really liked it!
Of course, I can't do this every day, but it's definitely a nice treat every once in a while! A win.
