My boys love pancakes. Well okay they love maple syrup really, the pancakes are just a means to getting what they really are after. They are also somewhat picky eaters, so I have discovered a way to make their favourite foods much healthier.
Firstly we start with the syrup. We use 100% real maple syrup (although daddy does love his Aunt Jemima).
I am working really hard in our house to use 'real' whole foods. I won the most amazing cook book called Helpings: Real food for young people by young people. I love that is it a real food cook book with information and great recipes. I have made the pancakes from it several times. I also tried to make the zucchini fritters but got distracted and pureed the zucchini so I made some more pancakes. Even though they were rather savoury the boys gobbled them up.
Here are some other ideas of things to add (along with some good spices):
frech toast using different breads
What do you add to your pancakes?
