Pancakes. There’s just something about them. I don’t know if it’s the batter sizzling on the pan or the stack of fluffy pancakes on the plate, but pancakes are just comforting.
And pancakes are super convenient. You can make up a batch and freeze them for later (great on the go snacks) and you can also hide lots of things in the pancake batter from unsuspecting little ones. I don’t always advocate hiding veggies and fruits from my kids but for some reason, when the fruit/veggies is pureed or shredded, it’s not as offensive as it is when it’s sliced or cubed. Even if my son KNOWS it’s there and knows that it’s zucchini/broccoli/carrots/[insert fruit or vegetable name]. I don’t get it.
You know what else pancakes are good for? Sneaking in extra protein. While I may hide fruit and veggies in my kid’s pancakes, I often hide protein powder, like Orgain’s protein powder, in my pancakes. 21 grams of organic, plant-based protein, no added sugar, 5 grams of fiber, gluten-free, soy-free, non-GMO – not bad for a protein powder, right?
