Now the only real question is, what are you going to top your pancakes with? Will you keep it classic with butter and syrup? Make them fruity and top your stack with your favorite berries and whipped cream? Or opt for the best of both worlds and top with bacon and maple syrup?
As a reminder, before making any changes to your dietary regimen, always check with your healthcare provider first to determine what is right for you.
