pancakes
Pancakes are a breakfast staple. Nothing reminds me of my childhood more than a huge stack of pancakes with whipped cream and loads of maple syrup. Unfortunately, my metabolism isn't that of a 10-year-old anymore and a stack of sugary, buttery pancakes every morning will pack on the pounds faster than you can say “Bisquick.” The good news is that there is a ton of ways to make healthier versions of pancakes! In fact, these clean pancakes are so delish, I actually like them better than the real thing. Try making these apple cinnamon pancakes for all of the flavor and none of the guilt.This recipe is provided by Jennifer Leah Gottlieb.
