It’s like having dessert for breakfast.
At IHOP, an order of five Original Buttermilk Pancakes adds 750 calories’ worth of (mostly) white flour to your IHIPs. And that’s without the syrup you pour at the table.
But these days, plain pancakes are passé. Expect 650 to 800 calories in a four-stack of Chocolate Chocolate Chip, Double Blueberry, Harvest Grain ‘N Nut, Jelly Donut, Rooty Tooty Fresh ‘N Fruity, or Strawberry Banana.
IHOP’s New York Cheesecake pancakes take the cake. A four-stack has 1,100 calories and roughly 13 teaspoons of (mostly added) sugar. That’s two days’ worth for women and a 1½-day supply for men.
It’s not just IHOP. An order of Bob Evans Sweet & Stacked Hotcakes—Apple Cinnamon, Cinnamon Supreme, Double Blueberry, Double Chocolate, or Fruit-N-Nut Multigrain—ranges from 1,000 to 1,200 calories. Think of them as heavycakes.
Instead: Try a veggie omelet made with egg whites or egg substitute.
