I am usually not a fan of margarine, but recently I have tried a product called Take Control. This is fantastic stuff. Itís low in calories and fat and actually has a rich and creamy flavor. The texture is good and it melts well. A couple of teaspoons has only 30 calories and about 3 1/2 grams of fat.
Maple syrup is a great choice for all types of cooking. It adds a rich, sweet, caramelized flavor to recipes like my Maple Herb Ribeye Steak recipe.
Used carefully it can help reduce the amount of fat and calories in a recipe while enhancing other flavors of the dish. It also helps In sauces, as it helps distribute ingredients throughout the mouth similar to the way fat does.

Leftover pancakes arenít very good. The batter will keep overnight but the pancakes will not be as good.
|2/3 cup||all purpose flour|
|1 Tbsp||dark brown sugar|
|1 Tbsp||Splenda or stevia|
|1 tsp||baking powder|
|1/4 tsp||ground cloves|
|1/8 tsp||ground nutmeg|
|2/3 cup||non-fat buttermilk|
|1/4 cup||egg substitute|
|2 tsp||(per serving) unsalted butter|
|1 Tbsp||pure maple syrup (per serving)|
Sift the flour, brown sugar, Splenda, baking powder, cloves, nutmeg and salt into a large mixing bowl.
Add the buttermilk and egg substitute and whisk until the batter is smooth.
Heat a non-stick griddle over medium-high heat. Let the batter stand for at least 2 minutes while the griddle is heating. Stir once and wait another minute before placing batter on the griddle.
When the griddle is hot enough that a few drops of water will dance on the surface reduce the heat to medium and place about 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake on the griddle.
Cook until small bubbles on the surface of the pancake form and then burst. Turn and cook for about 1/2 the time that the pancakes cooked on the first side.
Remove and top with one teaspoon of Take Control margarine on each pancake and serve one tablespoon of pure maple syrup for every two pancakes.
Serving size = 2 pancakes (without fruit), 2 tsp. Take Control margerine, 1 Tbsp pure maple syrup
