Who doesn’t love pancakes? They were always that special food my mother used to make on Saturday or Sunday mornings .. or any special morning. When I was little she would make the pancakes into shapes: Mickey Mouse (or Minny), elephants (yes she was THAT good) or even dinosaurs!
I found this recipe via Pinterest and had to share. Since I’m trying to be more health conscious I thought this recipe would be perfect to recreate my mother’s pancake mornings (minus the shape making).
