Can you believe school is already back in session?! For my oldest son, first grade started on August 8th this year, which seemed really early to us. I was already nervous enough for him to start, so finding out it was earlier than we thought made that even worse! That said, after a month in, we are getting back into the routine and he is loving it.
Part of that routine is making sure that we have yummy breakfasts, lunches, and after school snacks every day. My son is not very picky, but I do like to make things that I know he will really like. He has always been a big fan of pancakes, so I always try to come up with new ways to make them so that he never gets bored. Today I want to share a pancake recipe that includes one of our favorite cereals – Honey Bunches of Oats. We love Honey Bunches of Oats because not only does it taste great, but it is heart healthy too!
Don’t be fooled by the picture – this is not only a Honey Bunches of Oats cereal because I sprinkle some on top – the actual pancake batter includes it too! Also, as if you needed any other excuse to make this, now you can get $1.00 off of your purchase of Honey Bunches of Oats with this coupon!
The pancake recipe is also healthier than others, especially if you are trying to cut back on flour – because it doesn’t have any flour at all and includes some delicious bananas also!
My son absolutely loved this the first time I made it and has asked for it a few times since then too! All of these ingredients combine for an amazing flavor, and topping it with additional Honey Bunches of Oats, fruit, and syrup make it even better.
I hope that you enjoy this recipe and that you add it to your list of breakfasts this school year, and don’t forget to come back and let me know how it turns out!
