This whole wheat pancake recipe tastes like a morning glory muffin, but is a whole lot healthier! They’re quick, easy and great for kids!
There was been a mini war going on the FFF household lately guys.
It’s called the “you don’t make Morning Glory muffins like my dad does Taylor” War.
That’s right. The hubskerdoo isn’t harping that my food isn’t like “Mom used to make”
It’s all about the carby goodness that his dad used to make for him.
Now, I will give it to my Father-In-Law, he makes a mean muffin.
But, he also makes one that does not reside in Healthy Muffin-Ville.
Sorry dad – you know I love you!
Anyway. I needed to devise a sneaky way to calm the raging muffin war.
Side note: By “Raging muffin war” I mean that Mr. FFF was all “you should make muffins like my dad”
And I was like “No.”
So it’s really not raging. Or a war.
It just makes for a better story. You understand.
You know the best way to make someone forget about muffins?
Make whole wheat pancakes. I don’t really know if there is any scientific evidence to back that up, but if I had a choice between the two, it’s pancakes ALL da way babayyy!
Was that creepy? These are not creepy pancakes. They are yummy pancakes.
I’ve talked about The Huberoo’s obsession with breakfast (especially when it involves any homemade cereal recipe) so I figured I had come up with the perfect, ninja plan to give him the Morning Glory flavour that he craved, without eleventy billion pounds of oil.
Side note Jr.: Yes, there is still some oil in these whole wheat pancakes. You COULD omit it. But don’t.
You know what guys? My ninja pancake plan WORKED. Totally pulled a fast one on Mr. FFF.
Well, it wasn’t SUPER fast because he could obvi tell that they weren’t muffins. He still has eyes and erythang.
BUT, I pulled a fast on his taste budz because they did know the diff to the erence. Plus, they are about a million times healthier. SUCCESS.
So, like a typical Canadian, I made peace and the war was ended.
