Whole Wheat Pancakes and Strawberry Syrup

Monday, September 5, 2011
Good morning everyone! Smile 
First off, I want to wish everyone a Happy Labor Day!!! 
I hope that you and your family have a great day off!  We are spending the day with my Mother-in-Law.  The boys are going on a bike ride, the girls are going dig into some new books and then we are going to grill out!
Today,  I wanted to share a healthy breakfast that I make with the kids sometimes.
My daughter LOVES baking!  She especially loves to make pancakes with me.  She is my big helper and I love doing things with her.

I love the Better Homes and Gardens pancake recipe but we use whole wheat flour instead of white flour. We are used to that and the kids don’t know anything else so it works for us.

I also make my own strawberry syrup that the kids love!!!  I just use what I have.  Here I used frozen strawberries.  Sometimes I keep them whole or sometimes I with chop or grate them depending on our time and mood.

I just heat them up in a sauce pan.

I don’t even add sugar to the sauce.  I just put the strawberries on top of our whole wheat pancakes and topped it with real whipped cream…yum!  Then we add some fresh fruit.
