We've become big pancake eaters in our house. My husband is sort of the breakfast master these days and Kenya loves getting into the action as his Daddy's sous chef. Many mornings I come down to the kitchen at the crack of dawn only to find the two of them partaking in their own little IHOP, and I have to say they're giving me a run for my money. Blueberry, banana, strawberry, even raspberry pancakes -- my boys have been on a roll. So, I set out to beat them at their own game. Or at least come up with something equally yummy.
This recipe takes no time to put together and it's a perfect opportunity to let your kids help you cook: whisking and dumping the dry and wet ingredients into a bowl is great fun for them. I liked the idea of using oatmeal in these pancakes as they add great texture and flavor. Not only is the end result delicious, they're also healthy and packed with nutritious ingredients that are the perfect start to a kid's busy day!
Take that boys!
