Pancakes can get a bad rap of being an unhealthy option for breakfast, but when made when you make pancakes with whole grains, such as whole wheat flour or oats, pancakes can be a healthy breakfast. Especially if you pair these whole grain pancake recipes with a glass of milk and fresh fruit.
Another tip I have to making healthy pancakes, is to give my kids a medicine dropper filled with pure maple syrup. This limits the amount of syrup they use on their pancakes, but yet they love the control they have to squirt the syrup out themselves.

I have a love affair with french toast. French Toast makes me feel fancy--isn’t that kind of silly, given how easy it is to make french toast?
I grew up with my mom rarely making french toast and the only times I had it was on special occasions or at restaurants. I think that is why French Toast recipes feel like they need to be reserved for special occasions in my mind.
