My kids love pancakes and mini muffins.   This is a healthy alternative my kids loved.  They were initially worried about the dark color, but once they tried them they loved them.  Traditional pancakes are loaded with extra syrup.  When I made these pancakes they ate them without the extra syrup!  My husband liked them better than regular pancakes too!  We have been on a healthier diet for a few months now, so that probably contributes, but over all, I’d say these are going to be a new breakfast staple, or in the case of the mini muffins – anytime healthier snack.
