    Does anybody know if this is safe to eat for breakfast. I have been recently diagnosed type 2 and on metformin. After testing my bg found that bread really spikes me. As most cereal is full of carbs, as I have found out. I am looking for something to fulfill me rather that the yoghurt and berries. I wouldn’t say I’m overweight but losing a few pounds wouldn’t help. IMG_2209.jpg IMG_2209.jpg

    What is the carb value per 100g or per serving?

    Hi @Bigjohnjo Not sure about pancake mix - what is the 'sweet' ingredient, if it's sugar, glucose powder then i'd avoid, I use the protein powder to make my own pancakes using the unflavoured/unsweetened, so mix an egg, milk and fry up a pancake this way, then add berries.

    What's a serving though? I could easily eat my way through a whole stack of pancakes in one sitting! Or I could in the 'old days'.

    They say 2 scoops of the powder. No idea how many pancakes you get for that, never used it.

    I eat lots of eggs for breakfast along with cheese and sometimes baken or fish.

    Depends. What are you aiming for? Do you have a daily carb target?

    I believe that there is a pancake recipe with eggs and cream cheese, served sprinkled with granular sweetener and lemon juice which is supposed to be good.

    Egg & bacon or egg and ham for breakfast for me, sometimes with added mushrooms or tomato - or coffee with cream and a couple of bits of ham if I'm in a rush.

    I vitamin a variety of nuts, add sunflower seeds, coconut and a bit of erythritol and have that in a bowl wish some raspberries, milk and a bit of cream, it tastes like granola and is quickly made and easier than cooking to make toasted granola. I did a batch this morning and it keeps well in the fridge for a couple of weeks.
