The International House of Pancakes, or IHOP as it more fondly known, has been serving up flapjacks for almost 60 years. Over the course of the restaurant’s existence, its menu has grown extensively. Currently, IHOP offers eleven different signature pancakes, with an additional rotating seasonal menu. And with this many pancake options, it can be extremely difficult to choose which kind to chow down on for breakfast. Or lunch. Or dinner.
One method for choosing pancakes is always nutritional comparison. And we went ahead and did it for you. Thank us later.
11. Harvest Grain ‘N Nut® Pancakes – 990 Calories
We know. With a name like “Harvest Grain” you would probably think this is a healthy breakfast. Well, looks like you really can’t judge a book (or a pancake) by its cover.
10. New York Cheesecake Pancakes – 940 Calories
It’s not exactly shocking that cheesecake pancakes are high in calories. Order some if you’re looking to indulge, or maybe just go to the Cheesecake Factory instead.
