Default Pancakes for carbup?

Thoughts? I was looking at Aunt Jemima original and it shows 33g carbs and 0.5g fat for 1/3 cup mixture.. that sounds pretty good for a carb load. What do you guys think? Anyone done this before?

I dont see why not....

Easy on the syrup though, it's pure sugar (and not even the glucose kind).

UD2 got me addicted to pancakes.

Whoever came up with the pancake should get a posthumous Nobel Peace Prize (which, I don't think, they actually hand out posthumously). Not only are pancakes about the best-tasting thing on the whole planet, and quick/easy to cook, they're also dirt cheap.

When I did UD2, I'd typically get 2-3 good doses of pancakes (each "dose" being a full cup of mix, or a cup of oats when I made oat pancakes) during my carb load. I'd top them with a half a banana or so and a measured tablespoon of the maple-flavored HFCS stuff, as the sugar-free stuff to me tastes like Nyquil. I'm a big fan of Nyquil, and in fact consider it a heavenly elixir, but it's not a good topping for pancakes.

IMO, the only real drawback is that pancakes w/o a couple eggs alongside is kind of a shame.

I know I routinely overdid it on the fructose/sucrose content of my carb loads, and the pancakes/bananas/HFCS were serious contributors, but I still saw noticeable progress on a week-to-week basis, and never really did get really watery/bloated.

The 'just add water' kind are probably safer overall because there's no need for oil and an egg which would easily put you at maybe half the day's fat requirements.

Agreed, that syrup is the bomb. I actually prefer it over most regular syrups.

Also, Krusteaz fat free pancake mix is a decent base mix. I add some cinnamon and it's quite tasty or add some flavored MPI to up the protien and get some interesting flavored pancakes. If you do add protein powder, you should probably also add at least 1/2 tsp of baking powder to make sure they still fluff up nicely.

Ohhh.. Good call! Was thinking about how to get pancakes in there..

I'll see what the nutrtional info is on some of those ones.. I don't think I can get that syrup or mix in Canada..

Shame you can't use syrup or butter (well, I guess you could, but it'd be harder to make your other meals totally fat free)..

I'm thinking I'll do blueberries with some Splenda?
