      Hi, Alitg68. If you use the personal version of the Menu Planner application (the right-most option here:, you will see some of our recipes in the “Recipes” subcategory of each major food group. For newer recipes that have not yet been added into the system, you can use them to substitute for the main ingredient in your meal. You can also match up the exchanges visible at the end of each recipe and when you click on “Exchange Mode” in the toolbar above your menu.

    I only joined yesterday and i cant find whole grain flour in any supermarket around here. What can i substitute it for?
    Also i am confused. Why does each recipe have carb units etc logged. I havent read anywhere how many of each in a day is good.

      Hi, Alitg68. Whole grain is just another term for wholemeal, of which whole wheat is an example – the latter is probably what you’ll find at the market. Regarding the exchanges, you can see how many of each food group together meet your needs by clicking on “Exchange mode” in the toolbar above your menu.

      Hi, Orneryoutfit. The flax gel is only if you don’t use eggs – if you use eggs, no worries.
      For future reference, flax gel is what you get when you combine whole flax seeds and warm water together in a food chopper, run the chopper for about half a minute, and strain.

    Hi, mccowles. Pure maple syrup, raw honey, coconut nectar, and yacon syrup are good choices. They are more gentle on your blood sugar than artificial options, but note that they can still add up (each 1-1/2 tablespoons = 1 carb). You can “cut” these with something like JustLikeSugar and water to get more for your carbs.

    Hi, dveronica119. Definitely! We do recommend whole food syrups such as real maple and yacon of course. Each tablespoon (15 ml) is considered a carb exchang.
    In looking at your personal menu pattern, if you don’t have diabetes, you can have 2 instead of your 2 fat exchanges (if you do have diabetes, then 4 teaspoons or 20 ml) in the morning, in addition to 2 of these pancakes and some fruit.

    Hi, kah116. You can have more than one pancake – we just provide the information for single servings to make it more flexible for you to fit it into your day. According to your personal measurements, you can have 2 with some syrup (in moderation, of course), along with a serving of fruit. To find out what else we recommend you have with this/these, click on “Exchange view” in the toolbar above your finished menu.

    I am brand new to trim down. In fact the Greek Yogurt Pancakes are the first recipes I looked at. My question is, for breakfast does a person get only one pancake, if not, how many pancakes? Or does a person get some other things to eat with the pancake? Thank you.
