A nutritionist can help you to figure out what place a sweet dish such as this has in a healthy eating plan. If using canned peaches to prepare this recipe, the nutritionists at the Saint Peter’s Thyroid and Diabetes Center advise buying a brand that packs the peaches in its own juice or in water, the latter being the healthiest way to go. The add-on section of the recipe suggests drizzling maple syrup on the finished dish. Sugar free syrup can be used as a substitute to lower each pancake’s calorie and carbohydrate count even more.
Each pancake without butter and syrup contains 56 calories, 1 gram of fat, and 13 grams of carbohydrates.
