Grandchildren and Pancakes Want to have fun with your grandchildren in the kitchen? Put them to work. They’ll love it. Choose pancakes to make with them. They can stir the ingredients you’ve added to a bowl and pour the pancake mixture onto a griddle. I made a stack of pancakes with small squares of eggs for my two little granddaughters. The three-year-old loved pouring the mix onto the griddle. Sometimes you can get little ones to eat things (like eggs) they won’t normally eat if you make it fun. A Pinterest picture of a stack of pancakes gave me an idea. Stack egg squares aroundRead More →

Blueberry Protein Breakfast Add Protein to Pancakes Kick up the protein from simply adding an egg and/or sausage to pancakes prepared from a box mix. The protein from a pancakes box mix serving amounts to about 4 grams. Add an egg with another 6 grams. Add another 3 grams by including half a sausage patty.

Breakfast, eggs, and pancakes I love. So when I came across a recipe for egg and banana pancakes without flour, I had to try it. Flour thickens the pancakes (and the midsection, too). If they tasted alright, flat over fluffy might be worth it. There was only one way to find out what they would taste like without flour – make them. They’re good! I was surprised they were so tasty without the fluffy flour. However, a few other ingredients were added which made them taste superb. I added a sprinkle of cinnamon, about half a teaspoon of almond extract and about one-half teaspoon ofRead More →
