Happy Thursday! As we head into the weekend, I thought I would share one of our favourite weekend recipes…pancakes! These are pretty simple pancakes, but the fun part is that everyone picks what size they want. I have made them from as small as a 1″ in diameter to as big as the frying pan. The kids always love picking their sizes.
Like my waffle recipe, this is a great one to get the kids involved in as it is quick and simple with only a few ingredients.
1 cup unbleached white flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 Tbsp. baking powder
1/4 cup Baby brain organics (optional additional of omega 3 goodness)
2 cups milk (any milk is fine…buttermilk, cow’s milk, coconut milk, almond milk….etc.)
2 eggs (or 1 egg and 2 egg whites)
1/4 cup canola oil
1) Mix dry ingredients together.
2) Mix wet ingredients together in a separate bowl.
3) Mix all ingredients together until the dry ingredients are moist but do not over mix.
4) Then the fun begins….ask your kids if they want mini, small, medium, big, or super huge, etc. And scoop accordingly into the fry pan. If your kids are old enough, they can even scoop their own into the fry pan. I like to use my electric fry pan as I find the pancakes cook most evenly in there. I like that it is non-stick and I do not need additional oil or spray either.
You can further personalize them by adding different toppings such as: blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, diced peaches, banana slices, sauteed apples, yogurt, peanut butter, crushed nuts, honey, and more.
Last weekend, Rhett and Clay wanted “mini pancakes”, and Wes wanted “small”. Daddy wanted a stack of “mini” ones, and I went for one “normal” size….so boring I know. We topped them with strawberries and Coconut yogurt. Here are a few pics:
Until next time….stay healthy!
