Parents Blueberry-Orange Pancakes
My two boys are inconsistent in their breakfast eating. Some mornings they will drink two glasses of milk and a bowl of oatmeal and other days they will refuse everything put in front of them. I have no problems getting them to eat lunch and dinner, but I have been struggling with our breakfast routine. In order to combat this problem I have been trying to incorporate more nutrition into pancakes and waffles, which they will normally eat. I was pleased when a recent issue of Parents magazine had a recipe for blueberry-orange pancakes, which had added nutrition from whole-wheat flour and low-fat yogurt.
For pancakes this recipe has a number of ingredients, 12 in total. It uses a combination of all purpose and whole-wheat flours, and skim milk and low-fat yogurt. The ingredients were all easy to find at my local grocery store and I already had many of them in my fridge and cupboard. Even though there are a number of ingredients, this recipe goes together very quickly and takes less that 15 minutes. I followed the recipe as stated, with no modifications.
These pancakes have a nice flavor, with the combination of the blueberries and orange juice. My two boys didn't notice the addition of the whole-wheat flour, which is a bonus. I like that it incorporates low-fat yogurt for added nutrition. This is a great recipe to add extra nutrition to picky breakfast eaters.
