Cereal and milk can get so boring. Plus, most of them are full of sugar and don’t even fill you up. Yes, even though Lucky Charms or Cap’n Crunch may taste delicious, these choices are not the right way to start the day. And we all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so it’s important that the first meal of the day is nutritious. Of course, we have to factor in flavor as well because healthy can definitely be tasty.
So, this morning we made our famous Puffy Apple Pancake for the kids. We thought it would be a great way to start their day and fuel their brains for the school day ahead. Full of fiber and protein and bursting with flavor. Our kids absolutely love this recipe. Who doesn’t love pancakes? Little did they know that these were healthy.
