Healthy Pancakes Recipe, Lemon Ricotta Half Calorie Hotcakes By Tom Talbot

Many of us enjoyed mouth watering pancakes growing up as kids, but as we get older pancakes can really pack on the pounds.  Today Dr. Oz brought out Sam Talbot (top chef and author) to talk about his delicious (and healthy) hotcakes recipe.

Sam Talbot told Dr. Oz that he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when he was a young child.  You would think that his days of enjoying pancakes dripping with syrup would be ancient history.  However, he learned from his grandmother that there is a healthy way to make hotcakes, and today he shared his recipe with us all.

The two “top secret” ingredients which allowed Tom to be able to enjoy hotcakes with Type 1 diabetes are whole wheat flour and agave (in place of sugar).
