The plain pancakes either with Pumpkin syrup added or pumpkin syrup on top???.

I got some of the plain pancakes with my "free week" and can't wait to try them with my SF pumpkin torani syrup! So excited! LOL.

Btw I normally hate pancakes, cause they are too heavy and leave my tummy achy, but I tried the the chocolate chip ones this morning and they weer just the right amount to leave me feeling good!..

I don't make mine as pancakes.. I make it as a short cake... then put stuff on it.. more like a bread product and less like a pancake.. also more portable... I have used other syrups.. but I don't have pumpkin..

Pumpkin syrup sounds delish...who makes it and where did you find it?.

That sounds really good! Do you like the flavor of the Torani Pumpkin syrup? I just went and bought a few Torani SF syrups yesterday and I almost got pumpkin but I wasn't sure if I'd like it. Maybe I'll go back and get it. I did find SF Gingerbread and Peppermint though, and I'm excited to try those. I bet the gingerbread would be good in the pancakes..

I've tried cooking the pancakes both on a griddle and in the microwave, and to my surprise I like them better in the microwave. I add the water, 1/4 tsp. baking powder, a few shakes of butter buds, and a tbsp. of Walden Farms pancake syrup to the mix, then microwave for 2 mins. They come out far fluffier and really tender. I thought they were a bit tough/chewy when I made them on the griddle.

I liked the pancakes, but wasn't a huge fan until I microwaved them. Now I find myself wanting them almost every day!.

P.s. If you have a Cost Plus World Market nearby, they currently have the large Torani syrups on sale - 2/$12 (usually $6.99/each). They have a fantastic selection of the sugar free syrups, including special holiday flavors...

Another pumpkin syrup idea! I found a fat free ricotta cheese that is 30 cal & 1g carb per 1/4 cup serving. I read on Nutrisystem that we could use 1/4 cup ff ricotta as a snack option. I wonder if it would be good whisked or blended with the SF pumpkin syrup, almost like a mini pumpkin cheesecake?..

Its pretty good! I can't find a sugar free peppermint though! Oh wow, my Smart and Final sells the big bottles of Torani for $4.95 each. I have a Cost Plus near by but my friend already told me how much they were there. Thanks for the tip though! The ricotta thing sounds wonderful. You could blend it together and make a pumpkin cheesecake!.

Thanksfully I'm not craving lots of those things right now. I usually want my Lean to be something savory and not something sweet. Maybe some day I'll try it though!..

If you have a Cash and Carry, the Torani and DaVinci syrups are about $3.89 for the big bottles. It's the best price I've seen where I live...

Most of the SF syrups are TOO sweet for me, but I do use a smidge of the caramel sometimes. I also use extracts like almond, vanilla, lemon. I have not used the pancake MF, but I do mix and mess with the shakes and infamous shake cakes. When I do attempt pancakes, I will use my secret weapon that I use with all pancake or 'add water' mixes. Instead of water, I use sparkling water. It makes the pancakes or shake cakes etc.

Sometimes I want a 'flat cake' (aka hockey puck) After it has cooled a bit, I spread it with lo fat riccotta mixed with cinnamon and splenda, slide it under the broiler for a minute until it bubbles. Niiiice. Violet..

I made them today following directions and I got only two small ones - hungry!!!!..

Comment #8

I had them last night with a Morningstar Farms Veggie Sausage (part of lean 80 calories 3 g carb) and the two pancakes like a sandwich with a little bit of sugar free syrup. It was ridiculously good. Cant wait to have it again today!!!..

I love the pancakes with pumpkin syrup...I cook them in the microwave for three minutes in a round egg cooker...I also add a little baking powder.

I've also made them with mustard added to make it into a bun for turkey burgers....

A little cream of tomato soup...garlic sauce.

The pancakes are close enough to bread for me, so I am really liking them...

Thank you for this great tip! I haven't tried it with pancakes yet, but this morning I used sparkling water to make oatmeal scones in my sandwich maker and they came out great - much lighter and more tender. I mixed about 1/3 cup of sparkling water, a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice, and 1.5 tbsp. of SF gingerbread syrup with the apple cinnamon oatmeal. It made 3 "scones" in the sandwich maker. Yummy! I can't wait to try the sparkling water with the pancake mix!..

I love these ideas - I've been trying to think of how to make the plain pancakes more savory and the mustard is a good suggestion. Do you use dried ground mustard or wet prepared mustard? The egg cooker is a great suggestion and I am now totally kicking myself for giving mine away - I'll have to try to get another one!..
