Brain Booster Pancakes for #BreadBakers

Our host, Pavani, of Cook's Hideout, invited all of the Bread Bakers to make a "healthy" bread.  She left it up to the individual baker to decide what constituted a healthy bread.

As you are reading this post, I am on vacation visiting my brother and his family in California. I almost didn't participate this month because between the holidays and getting ready for vacation I wasn't sure I could fit in a bread making day as well.  Last Thursday, I was taking care of my Little Angel Face and decided to give her breakfast for lunch.  Grampy cooked up some bacon and I found this recipe for Brain Booster Pancakes at SuperHealthyKids.com.  Score!!!  I love when I can kill two birds with one stone and I really love that pancakes are considered a bread recipe.

These were quick to put together.  They are not a fluffy pancake but they are creamy tasting....not moist and not dense but still tasting creamy...I don't know how else to describe them.  They were very good and very filling and Melody LOVED them.

And so did Grampy.

And so will you!!
