I've always liked to pull the boat out a bit at the weekend . . . a nice leisurely breakfast, usually something which we wouldn't have any other day of the week. Having been diagnosed as a Diabetic I thought those days would be over, but I'm happy to say that they aren't in the least. They're just different.
Different doesn't have to be boring as these pictures and this recipe I am showing you here today will prove! These are fabulous . . . and whilst they are not doused in lashings of butter and maple syrup . . they are still filled with plenty of flavour and interest.
They are nutritious and filled with goodness as well. The pancakes are sugar free, with only a touch of maple flavoured sugar free syrup added. (Be judicious when you use sugar subs by the way, they can have an adverse effect on the digestive system if overdone, if you know what I mean).
The oats give them an almost nutty flavour and a dose of fibre, plus are good for the heart. That topping constitutes several of your five a day and is so delicious you won't even miss the lashings of Maple Syrup . . . sigh. Seriously!
Delicious and healthy with one serving coming in at less than 200 calories, including the topping. These feel and taste like a real treat! Life has never been so good!
