From JoAnna M. Lund’s book, Cooking Healthy with Splenda. She says in the recipe’s intro, “What did we do before some clever inventor developed a sugar-free maple syrup? If you’re like many dieters, you ate your pancakes dry, or else poured on the sweet syrup you love and gobbled guilt with your food. Here’s a great way to enjoy the taste you love – and use up those old bananas!” Nutritional information per serving: 113 calories, 1 gm fat, 2 gm protein, 24 gm carbohydrate, 383 mg sodium, 79 mg calcium, 1 gm fiber.
