This is a heavy duty low fat breakfast recipe. Treat with caution, and enjoy. This pancake recipe yields 7 Weight Watcher's points for half a pancake!
This low fat breakfast recipe is only for those days when you want to have something more "substantial" for breakfast.
If you are disciplined enough, you may enjoy your 7 points of indulgence... just every now and then. ;-)
And remember that although this is a low fat pancake recipe, it still can help you get big if you're not careful.
Those who are keen on a low carb diet should avoid this recipe. Period!
Fortunately for me, and many others who follow healthy eating programs such as Weight Watchers can still enjoy the simplest and most delicious foods in moderation.
And I'm not saying that low carbs diets are not good or ineffective. I've seen enough proof from many people to conclude that they do work.
But what I'm saying is that I prefer the healthy low fat programs because they give you freedom to eat almost anything in moderation.
Am I addicted to carbs? Maybe I am... and loving it! ;-)
Enjoy your low fat breakfast pancakes!
