1 cup protein pancake or waffle mix
(We used Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes Flapjack & Waffle Mix.)

1/4 cup Splenda or stevia

1 cup fat free milk
(We used Fairlife Fat Free Milk because it was lower in sugar.)

6 veggie sausage patties
(We used Morning Star Farms Original Sausage Patties.)

buttery cooking spray

3 whole eggs

3/4 cup sugar free syrup
(We used Cary's Sugar Free Low Calorie Syrup.)


3 Slices of American Cheese

This is a makeover of McDonald's McGriddle sandwich. The original has 550 calories, two-thirds of your daily allowance of saturated fat, nearly half your allowance of fat, a third of your sugar, just two grams of fiber and 19 grams of protein.

It took some work, but we came up with a delicious alternative. We used a pancake mix packed in protein, we replaced the regular sausage with a vegan sausage patty and covered it in a sugar-free syrup. The final product is lower in calories, sugar and fat. However, it packs in a third more protein and fiber than the original.

Our tasting panel didn't like it with cheese, so the final version we made didn't have that ingredient. If you put cheese on it, you'll need to include that in your calorie count.

Note: To make this properly, we used 4-inch egg rings. Those are rings that go in a pan, that you can drop an egg or batter in to make sure it comes out a specific size. You can also use the rings from mason jars to do the same job. Just make sure they're about 4-inches across.

Egg Rings - We used ones made out of silicon.

1. Put 1 cup of pancake mix, 1/4 cup Splenda or stevia and 1 cup of milk in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Whisk together well.

2. Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat.

3. Put two vegan sausage patties on a plate and heat them in the microwave on high for 40 seconds. (If you're using something other than Morningstar Farms vegan sausage patties, you should prepare them according to the package directions.)

4. Once the pan is hot, lightly coat 3 egg rings with the buttery cooking spray. Then coat the pan. Put the rings in the pan.

5. Crack ONE egg into one of the rings. Use a spatula to lightly press down on the ring, so the egg doesn't seep out. You can let go once it starts to harden. (If you prefer scrambled eggs, scramble it before dropping it into the ring.)

6. Flip the egg when the bottom is all solid white, and continue cooking until it's done to your preference. Less if you want the yolk runny, more if you want it hard all the way through. When the egg is finished, remove it from the pan.

7. Put 1/4 cup of pancake mix into EACH of the remaining two rings. (So each ring gets 1/4 cup of mix.) Let it cook until bubbles start to appear.

8. Then flip the pancakes and cook for about another 45 seconds, until it's brown and the pancakes are cooked through. When the pancakes are finished, remove them from the pan.

9. Flip the sausages over in the microwave and cook for another 40 seconds. Then cut one of the sausages in half.

McGriddle Stacked

10. Assemble the sandwich. One pancake goes on the bottom, that's topped with the egg, then the sausages, then 1/4 cup of syrup and finally the second pancake on the top. (If you're putting cheese on it, you add that on top of the veggie sausage. You might want to microwave the entire sandwich for about 30 seconds to have it melt properly.)

Yield: 3 Servings, 1 Sandwich Per Serving

McGriddle Remade

This is a Freezer Friendly Recipe!

You can cook four more small pancakes and freeze them for two more servings later.

Then you just have to re-heat them in the microwave for about 2-3 minutes, cook the egg and heat the frozen veggie sausage patty for another sandwich.
