|Guilt Free Pancake Recipe|
Yes! You heard me right! Guilt free! Of course, pancakes will never be the best breakfast food for you when it comes to health, but with this recipe, you can feel a bit less guilty about indulging in one of your most comforting foods.
Let's start off by knowing why eating pancakes can be a bit scary calorie wise. I recently joined Weight Watchers to shed a few pounds. This new lifestyle change has prompted me to find ways to make my recipes healthier with less points. The recipe for Bisquick's Gluten Free Pancakes calls for only 2 Tbsp of vegetable oil. When I looked at how many points that was, it was 7 points and 248 calories! That's crazy and ridiculous!

Now I know it is no secret to use applesauce as a substitute for oil, but I've never heard of people doing it for pancakes! So that's about it! This recipe is quick and easy on the stomach! Unfortunately I was unable to snap a picture of my pancakes, but they look just like regular pancakes would.
When doing all of the calculating on Weight Watchers' eTools site, it comes to 2 points per pancake! That's awesome and guilt free if you ask me!!
