Sometimes busy week day (and lazy weekend) mornings call for a quick, hassle-free breakfast. And sometimes it can still be really delicious and nutritious. Bonus points if it makes your kitchen smell like culinary heaven.

This week at Indulge In Nutrition, we’re bringing you an easy, healthy pancake recipe for a breakfast your family is sure to enjoy- you can even include the little ones to help you make sure the batter is stirred just right. 🙂

Our favorite part of making these healthy pancakes was the fact that we didn’t even have to go to the store to buy and special ingredients. They were all things we had laying around the house (and you are sure to have them, too!)

These healthy pancakes are also FREEZER FRIENDLY! You can whip them up on any day of the week (breakfast for dinner on a Monday night here), let them cool, and then freeze them individually to be popped in the toaster or microwave on a rushed morning.
