Jax isn't too picky or refined when it comes to his pancakes. A regular old flapjack with a little syrup drizzled on top will do him fine. Sometimes he wants them cut so he can eat them with a fork, but most of the time he just folds them in half and eats them like a taco. There is something so simple and delicious about a pancake like that. The problem is I've already shared my family's favorite pancake recipe and folding them like a taco isn't exactly groundbreaking enough to turn it into it's own post!
Sometimes I try to sneak a bit of nutrition into Jax's favorite foods. That is what happened with my Healthy Whole Grain Banana Pancakes and they are a new favorite too. So I took that idea and changed the fruit to blueberry. These pancakes are full of yummy stuff! There is plenty of oatmeal, yogurt and fruit to make you feel good about your breakfast!
These would be great drizzled with some blueberry syrup and I thought about making some, but in the end butter and syrup won out. Though there were plenty that were eaten straight off the griddle with nothing between us and the pancakes but our hot little fingers!
