I may (or may not) be the best mom in the world.
Of course I know that you will probably argue this point with me and claim to be the best mom in the world yourself.
It’s okay —> I’ll proudly share that title with you.
But if you are the best mom in the world then you have probably spent more money than necessary on Valentine’s candy and gifts for your two sons to take to school to share with their friends and teachers. Which also requires you to wake up a little early on a Monday morning to pack everything up and make sure it is all ready for the parties.
And you probably agreed to leave the house a little early on Tuesday morning so you can take the boys to get doughnut for breakfast. Not just any doughnut but chocolate at that.
Now don’t fuss at me just yet. The boys decided to trade in their Monday evening fro-yo trip for Valentine’s day in favor of doughnuts for breakfast. So in a sense this was their Valentine’s treat.
And of course you would probably agree to wake up a little early on Wednesday morning so you could make a breakfast that has been requested from said boys.
Just be sure to sub in chocolate chips for blueberries for the oldest one. Yep, today is going to be a berry good day!
- 1/4c whole wheat flour
- 1T cornmeal
- 1T flaxseed
- 1.5t baking powder
- dash of salt
- 1t cinnamon
- dash of nutmeg
- squeeze of lemon juice
- 1/2t vanilla
- 1/2 mashed banana
- 2T blueberry yogurt
- 1 egg
- 1/4 + 1T of almond milk
- 1/4c blueberries
Mix all ingredients in a small bowl until well combined. Spray you griddle with non-stick spray and cook until golden brown on both sides. Top with more mixed berries and maple syrup.
The yogurt and banana in this batter gave it just the right amount of sweetness. The pancakes were great with the syrup, but could easily be a tasty breakfast without it (you know just in case your watching your sugar in take).
You must make this for your next breakfast. Or better yet make them tonight, go ahead they make a fabulous dinner, I don’t mind. Just be sure to let me know what time you will be serving them. I come equipped with my own plate, knife & fork. I promise. I will even take my dirty dishes with me when I go 🙂
For now I must go spend some quality time with my two munchkins and convince them that I am not waking up early for anything tomorrow. I shall sleep until my usual “wake up” time, or at least that’s what I am hoping for.
I will leave you with this….could you say no to someone that adorable?
