Recipe: Whole Wheat Pancakes

pancakesI woke up this morning craving pancakes.  I think I’m already missing the lazy mornings of last week’s vacation.  Fortunately, these pancakes are so quick and easy to whip up they can be served for breakfast during the school week –and in my house that means super easy because school day mornings are the craziest time of day.

My boys don’t usually agree on what they want for breakfast, but I know when I make these pancakes at least 3 out of 4 will want them (and the 4th one really does want them, he’s just being obstinate).  Even better is when I let them each choose what they want in their pancakes from things like bananas, blueberries, walnuts, strawberries, etc.  This didn’t happen today, but it does happen…when I’m feeling extra nice :-)

With or without the fruit, the boys just gobble these up. As you can see, they don’t even bother to get dressed first or comb their hair.
