I’m normally not a pancake girl.  I’m a waffle girl all the way.  Except, I really love these pancakes.  Like, I haven’t even gotten my waffle maker out in several months because of them.  Most of the time I don’t enjoy pancakes because I just feel like I need to nap after eating half of one.  Not these though.  They actually have some nutritional value – whole grains, healthy dairy – it’s good stuff, I tell you.

Though I might normally serve pancakes with syrup and a spurt of whipped cream (yes, it’s true), I prefer to eat these with a little bit of vanilla yogurt and a drizzle of honey for dipping.  They really don’t need much, they’re wonderful all on their own.  These make me feel good, the way you want to you feel when you’re starting your day.  And not only do I feel good about eating them, I feel good about serving them to my little man.  He goes nutso for them.  I’ve started making extra and freezing them to give him some variety in his breakfasts throughout the week.  Though I can hardly believe it, now I actually have two pancake monsters instead of one!  That’s right, my sweet Caroline is starting to try some table foods and these pancakes are one of her favorites.  As much as I am looking forward to warmer weather, right now I’m content staying cozy inside with my sweet snugglers, and enjoy a warm, comforting breakfast that also happens to be healthy.
