My 5 1/2 year old boy absolutely loves the McGriddles from McDonald’s. He literally begs for them and will eat two at a time when he gets the chance. I HAD to make a more healthy version of this that I could feel good about him eating. And then my 16 year old daughter said, “MOM LET’S CALL THEM MCCRIDDLES!!!” HAHAHA! Perfection!
So I present to you the McCriddle.
I tried the pancake several ways but came up with this as the best option.
Also, it is dairy free and grain free and of course, sugar free, low carb and TRIM HEALTHY MAMA friendly!!
You can use Turkey or Pork sausage, whatever your preference.
Oh and I used a sugar free syrup but I have also made the delicious sugar free syrup in the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook on page 480. If you need a link to a good sugar free recipe you can check out Gwen’s Nest Pancake Syrup here… Stevia Syrup Recipe
I like to put a swirl of syrup in the batter as it is cooking on the griddle and then flip.
These freeze well! Just make ahead, freeze in baggies or wrap well, take out and pop in microwave for 1 minute. Drizzle the syrup over the top when ready to eat.
**NOTE- the pancakes need to cook longer than usual to get a good crust on the top to hold together well. I didn’t time the amount but it was at least 3 minutes a side.
