My kids love breakfast, which is a bit ironic since Dad and I don't eat until noon. But I do enjoy making their favorites for them, and they've probably been a bit spoiled since we have not had to rush out the door for the past four months!
Some of their favorites include "Mom's Waffles," "Grammy's Pancakes" and these adorable "Mom's Mini Pancakes!"
These pancakes have no sugar, so I feel good about them eating them for breakfast (or let's face it, sometimes lunch or dinner too!). I do add a few mini chocolate chips for extra fun (and thus a bit of sugar), but they are still delicious without.
Here is how you make them:
Mom's Mini Pancakes
1 1/2 cups flour (I used a mix of white whole wheat and all purpose)
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Mix the above ingredients together in a large mixing bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk with a fork:
1 1/2 cups milk
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until combined. Next, add:
3 tablespoons melted butter
Stir until mixed well. For mini pancakes, drop by tablespoons on a skillet or griddle. Add chocolate chips, if desired, before flipping. Serve with warm natural maple syrup for dipping! Freeze the leftovers for another day!
Makes 36 mini pancakes, which is about 5-6 servings at our house. ENJOY! XO
