Kids Favorites Made Healthy: Fresh Berry Pancakes

in May 29, 2015

My favorite breakfast is pancakes. I can eat what seems like a hundred of them! Since they're kind of a pain to make, I usually reserve them for weekends when the family and I can slow down and get a chance to really enjoy them together. I try to use the healthiest recipes that I can, and this is one of my faves!

What You Need
1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup ground flax meal (optional, but adds a nutritional punch to many baked goods!)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 egg
1 cup skim milk, plus more if necessary
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon brown sugar
As much mixed fresh berries as you’d like (I just used the raspberries I had on hand)

1. Mix the flour, flax meal (if used), and baking soda together in a medium bowl and set aside.
2. In a large bowl, beat the egg, milk, salt, and brown sugar together until mixed well. Stir in the dry ingredients and the fresh berries.
3. Place a skillet/pan over medium heat and spray lightly with cooking spray, or melt a dollop of butter to grease the pan.
4. Drop 1/4 cup of the batter on the pan per pancake. Cook until bubbly, about 1 1/2 minutes. Flip and continue cooking until golden brown. Makes about 12 pancakes.

 Serve with more fresh berries on top, and real maple syrup!
