I really miss slow Sunday mornings. Now that the girls are older and involved in team sports, our weekends are occupied with soccer games. I recently had a Friday off and I decided to clear our morning plans and made these delicious whole wheat pancakes. I love that the girls are eager to roll up their sleeves and help in the kitchen, I am hoping we will create some family lasting memories and recipes that will be passed onto their family. I can remember my dad making Aunt Jemima pancakes every Sunday morning. To this day, I still love my pancakes drizzled with maple syrup but the real stuff. Pancakes on Christmas morning, absolutley,…. Fluffy whole wheat pancakes. These delicious fluffy whole wheat pancakes will be a hit during the holiday season.
We got our first snowfall this week and to celebrate the season I turned these pancakes into snowmen. My girls eyes lit up when I turned these fluffy pancakes into snowmen. I placed them on their favorite Santa plates and used chocolate chips and M&M’s for eyes and a nose. They were a hit. I couldn’t take the pictures fast enough without little hands trying to sneak a chocolate chip away. I am planning on making these on Christmas morning. If you are more in the mood for gingerbread pancakes I found this one from well plated and this one from foodess. Do you have any Christmas breakfast traditions? I would love to hear from you?
