Pancakes!!! Use Soya milk, low sodium salt and an egg for the mix, fry in coconut oil and top with real fresh lemon juice and a little caster sugar ( a little can't hurt can it? ).

Adjust the liquid and cook as a "pancake." Great for on-the-go breakfast. Thanks for the ideas; I'll try fixing my personal favorite recipes now.

Some of us would rather eat the real sugar and exercise rather than fill our body with anything fake (think about what healthy REALLY means...)Also When flour would have made this recipe far too heavy. I of course switched the milk to skim (and could have omitted .25% -50% of the sugar) - but all around a great recipe!
