Have you ever been shocked by what your kids will eat?
Many times my kids surprise me and this is no different. The original recipe for these Pumpkin Protein Pancakes is a single serving meant just for me! The picky 12 year old wanted a bite and then the younger two as well. The picky one said, "Boy mom if you made pancakes like THIS all the time I would eat them!" What? Come again? Is my hearing accurate from the picky one who hates pancakes?!! Yep and so.........
Here you have enough to make for the whole family, 16 to be exact. Enjoy!
