Want to have a decadent Sunday brunch without all the unhealthy fat and calories? Use whole wheat pancake mix and top with plain or vanilla yogurt, berries and nuts instead of butter and syrup. You’ll cut out all of the extra calories, fat, and sugar of syrup and butter and add the probiotics and calcium of yogurt, antioxidants from the berries and some extra protein and heart healthy fats from the nuts.
A friend shared this idea with me a few years ago. I never went back to syrup; it’s that good!
