With Diabetes in the household and a gastric bypass - I'm looking for complex carb turnarounds of solid favorites.
Like others, I used a stone ground whole wheat flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt - and more sugar -- except that we are a splenda household these days - so I substituted straight splenda for the white sugar (2 Tablespoons) and 1 1/2 teaspoons of the splenda brown sugar blend. (equivelent of 1 Tablespoon of regular br. sugar) I also added a half dead banana that was in need of a purpose. With the addition of the banana - I quickly discovered that it needed a serious boost in leavening -- and added a half teaspoon of baking powder as well as the soda already in the recipe. We like our pancakes light and fluffy. This did the trick. Topped with some sugar free syrup - and Log Cabin seems to have the best flavor - it was a healthy makeover. Also, I recommend to everyone - keep buttermilk in the house. When it's called for, even sour milk doesn't quite give the recipe the same kick.
