As a parent, one of my greatest concerns is the health of my children. That is why I am always looking for the best recipes to make sure that they are eating well. Today I’m going to share with you a delicious and healthy pancakes recipes that your kids will fall in love with!
From an early age, my children learned that we eat large breakfasts at our house, which is very common in Mexico where I grew up. It doesn’t matter if they are in school or on summer break – we always have a big breakfast. Some of our favorite options are pancakes, french toast, smoothies, oatmeal, and bacon and eggs.
Like I mentioned above, in Mexico the people are used to having a large breakfast, consisting of anything from molletes, to chilaquiles, to sopes, to leftovers from the night before.
I raised my kids with the same tradition, so on days when I do decide to just give them cereal, they are quick to ask “what is for breakfast” because they consider cereal a snack and not a true breakfast.
With time, I have started being more selective with the ingredients that I use in my kid’s breakfast. One reason is because one of my kids is very picky, but he loves breakfast. Sometimes he won’t eat much for dinner or lunch, so I like to make sure that whatever he eats for breakfast will provide nutrients and energy that he will need throughout the day.
What Makes These Pancakes Healthy?
Normally pancakes include refined normal flour, eggs, and a few other ingredients. While those can be tasty too, I love to include ingredients that don’t change the flavor much, but that do provide much needed nutrients.
For example, for this recipe, I replace normal flour with Quinoa Flour or almond flour. In addition, I include other healthy ingredients including oats, greek yogurt, and coconut sugar instead of regular sugar.
As a result of these ingredients, these pancakes aren’t quite as fluffy as normal pancakes, but they are soft and delicius and my picky eater will eat 5 or 6 of them every time I make them!
