Make delicious apple cinnamon pancakes using Nectresse Natural No Calorie Sweetener!
This post brought to you by NECTRESSE™Sweetener. All opinions are 100% mine.
Recently I was sent a box of NECTRESSE™Sweetener to try. The difference between this sweetener and other sweeteners on the market is that it is the only sweetener made from monk fruit extract. It is 100% natural and contains zero calories per serving. It is 150 times sweeter than sugar and can be used in cooking and baking. Nectresse Sweetener is available in both convenient single serve packets (40 servings) and easy to hold canisters (140 servings) with a multipurpose lid for sprinkling, pouring or spooning.
Included with my sample box of Nectresse was a list of recipes that I could try this new sweetener in. Many of them struck my fancy but the apple cinnamon pancake recipe that they included sounded too delicious not to make.
In addition to the Nectresse, using cinnamon in my own pancakes was new to me. It gave them quite a tasty flavor. When I made mine I didn't need as many so I halved the recipe. The recipe above makes 12 small pancakes. I halved it and made 3 medium to large sized pancakes. I also used margarine instead of butter and a granny smith apple (my favorite!) instead of your average apple. (Please check out the end of this post for nutrition information for the above recipe).
Just look at the finished breakfast above, mouthwatering! After they were done I finished them up by topping them with sugar free syrup, margarine and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Believe me, I couldn't tell that these pancakes were made using Nectresse in place of sugar. They were sooo yummy.
You know what else is neat about Nectresse? Lisa Ling is the Nectresse Sweetener spokesperson! I grew up with watching this great journalist advance from the school system's Channel One news network to The View. Lisa has a family history of diabetes so she has always been cautious about her sugar intake. She has relied on no calorie sweeteners to satisfy her sweet tooth but she hasn’t liked any as much as Nectresse!
Nectresse Sweetener is now available now in grocery stores, drug stores, supercenters and online for suggested retail prices of $3.99 (packets) and $6.99 (canisters). Why not go try it yourself today?
