29. or how about
Two four-inch pancakes,
half a banana (4 oz.),sliced,
1-2 tsp. margarine
and 1 T. regular maple syrup.
Total= 3 carb servings.

I think I'd rather have only a little of the real stuff than more of the artificially sweetened stuff. Aspartame gives me side effects, and although I like Splenda in hot tea, I don't know about a sugar free syrup. Doesn't it taste like chemicals?

A 1 T. serving of maple syrup has 13 grams carbs. A T. is not much, but it's a taste.
