These pancakes, you guys.. they’re a game changer! Packed with protein AND veggies.. and they can be gluten free. what What?! Perfect healthier breakfast option for kids and adults too. I don’t even just feed them to the kids and make myself something else. (You know those gross recipes you’ve tried before? yeah.. yuck).. These are denser than regular pancakes, and delicious.
I end up feeling bad with a dose of bloated when I make my regular light and fluffy gluten-full pancakes, full of white flour and oil. Not these. These have no oil. They’ve got Greek yogurt, eggs, and VEGGIES! Today I made them with cooked broccoli. I know, crazy right? My 3 year old carbaholic rarely eats her vegetables or any protein, so I feel a bit better when I can get these into her.
Top them off with some frozen blueberries defrosted until ooey gooey like syrup. I’m working on a completely grain-free version too, so stay tuned for that.
