Yummy Homemade Pancake Recipe

IMG_7727web.jpg

Good morning readers!  Today I wanted to share a yummy homemade pancake recipe with you! I’m still working on perfecting these, but for the most part the kiddos like them just as good as the frozen waffles that you pop in the toaster and they’re just as easy, but full of good things instead of processed ingredients that no one can pronounce!   Ingredients: 1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour (You can also substitute regular white flour, but it’s just not quite as healthy.) 1 Tbsp sugar (Can substitute 1 Tbsp honey) 2 tsp baking powder 1 cup milk 2 Tbsp lemon juice or 1 Tbsp Vanilla (Both offer a great flavor to the pancakes, we prefer the lemon.) 1 egg, beaten Optional: 1/4 c your favorite ingredient. Some ideas we like: white chocolate chips, blue berries, strawberries. Directions: Mix all ingredients in a bowl and cook on flat skillet until browned on both sides. Top with a pat of butter and the syrup of your choice. Variation: Another … [Read more...]

Healthy Smoothie Recipes

smoothie.gif

I always get a lot of questions regarding my yummy smoothie recipe since we make it almost daily in my monthly meal plans for breakfast. Due to its popularity I thought I’d finally give the smoothie it’s own post!   We make these almost daily, especially in the summer months when fruit is so tasty and refreshing! Smoothies are a healthy and yummy way to start your day, and my kiddos love them. Now that Strawberry Shortcake knows how to make them, she likes to experiment with whatever we have on hand. Here is our basic smoothie recipe, along with some of our favorite variations. My Smoothie Recipe: Ingredients: 1 banana (frozen is better, but I will work at room temp.) 2 cups frozen strawberries (Again, room temp is okay) 1 cup milk 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt (We prefer frozen yogurt) 1/2 cup orange juice Optional: 2-3 teaspoons honey to taste (The plain fruit can be a bit sour, but the orange juice helps with this, so try it before adding … [Read more...]

Waffle Egg & Cheese Sandwich

I tried this recipe after seeing it on Muffin Tin Mom a while back. I had one child not too fond of it, but she also doesn’t like eggs a whole lot. This recipe is from Incredible Egg, if you haven’t already, check out their site, they have tons of great recipes! Ingredients: Frozen Waffles (2 per sandwich) 1 egg, beaten 1 slice colby-jack or american cheese optional: 1 slice Canadian bacon Directions: HEAT oven to 400°F. Spray baking sheet with cooking spray and put frozen waffles on baking sheet. Spoon egg over waffles, spreading to fill cavities. (Careful here, it overflows quickly!) Top with Canadian bacon slice. BAKE in 400°F oven until egg is set and waffles are crisp, 10 to 12 minutes. TOP one waffle with cheese. COVER with remaining waffle and press together. LET STAND 1 minute to allow cheese to melt. Serve with your favorite fruit or smoothie and enjoy! … [Read more...]

Step 1: Preheat waffle iron. In large bowl whisk together eggs, milk, oil, apple sauce, vanilla. Step 2: Stir in remaining dry ingredients until batter is smooth. (You may have to add a little extra flour if its too runny, I didn’t measure that well!) Step 3: Pour batter into waffle iron and cook until golden!

Whole Wheat Pancakes

I have to admit that my children still like Bisquick better, but in an attempt to be slightly more healthy we make these instead. They are pretty good and I feel a little better about eating them! Ingredients: 1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour 1 Tbsp sugar (Can substitute 1 Tbsp honey) 2 tsp baking powder 1 cup milk 2 Tbsp lemon juice 1 egg, beaten Optional: 1/4 c your favorite ingredient. Some ideas we like: white chocolate chips, blue berries, strawberries. Directions:Mix all ingredients in a bowl and cook on flat skillet until browned on both sides. Top with a pat of butter and Agave Nectar. Makes about 14 small pancakes, see above photo. I use Agave Nectar from Mudhava instead of syrup. Agave is a natural liquid sweetener made from the extract of the wild agave. It can be pricey, so I buy bulk and just refill the little container! Note: You can make extras of this and freeze them in a Gallon Ziploc freezer bag. Just thaw before ready to eat, and re-heat in your toaster! … [Read more...]
