I have a love for pancakes and if you follow my blog at all you will see several different recipes for pancakes. It seemed only natural for me to try this low carbohydrate, low fat, gluten free version from the popular show “The Biggest Looser”. I think I got motivated to try these after coming home from the gym and one of my friends at the gym who I haven’t seen in a while said they were wondering who that skinny girl was, meaning me. Well, I’m not skinny more like healthy, but it felt good and made me want to eat healthier, since I eat plenty of junk and sweets. Although I have been working out very regularly for 6 weeks I haven’t really cut out the junk, so I’m going to make more of an effort to do so, since I could stand to shed a few pounds. As far as pancakes go these pancakes were pretty darn good for the low-fat version. I liked the taste and texture of them and with just a tablespoon of low calorie syrup and a few raspberries and I was one happy camper. I will definitely be making these pancakes over and over again and not feel one bit guilty by eating them. I hope you try out these diet friendly blender pancakes and like them as much as I did.
