I don’t think there is a day that goes by that my kids don’t ask me to make them pancakes for breakfast. I mean EVERYDAY! And they don’t just want regular ole pancakes… nope. They want chocolate chip pancakes!
Well, as any healthy eating mom knows, you really can’t (or shouldn’t) give them pancakes everyday, right?
I am one of those moms that likes to create food. Many times, I will experiment with food and see what ”works” and what doesn’t.
My goals is to make something healthier, more flavorful, and better than the original.
I may not technically know what I am doing (spoiler alert… I’m not a chef), but sometimes I hit a home-run
So, I was experimenting with my own creation of how to make a TO DIE FOR gluten free, tasty and “healthier” pancake for my kids one morning and
as I looked to my right, the answer was staring back at me.
Tropical Strawberry Shakeology.
If you don’t know how much I LOVE Shakeology yet… well, let me tell you.
It has become a staple in my household and my entire family drinks it daily.
We love the Vegan Tropical Strawberry. SOOOO delicious and nutritious.
We honestly love how berrylicious it is. I mean, look at that color.
My kids LOVE it and ask for it all the time.
I love how convenient and easy it is to bring with me in my bag while I am out and about, shake it up in my blender bottle and BAM!
Not to mention… Seeing how it helps maximize my results from Insanity… EXTRA bonus!
SO, I take my Pamela’s Gluten Free Pancake Mix (we love this stuff too), mix in a little of the Shakeology, some egg whites, Chia Seeds and water
and start in with my experiment.
After I put a ladle full on the pan, I add a few Enjoy Life non-dairy, nut and soy free chocolate chips to them.
Yummy pancakes that I can feel good about giving my kids to eat in the morning.
NOT EVERY morning… but
I usually pair the pancakes with a side of Lifeway Kefir
Lots of protein, probiotics and calcium.
The kids are happy and I am a happy mom!
I do want to mention that if you haven’t tried a POWERCAKE yet… you are missing out on an experience that is SO worth trying!
Powercakes is another healthy, nutritious, clean, and DELICIOUS spin on a regular old pancake!
There are so many different types, flavors, combinations, and Powercake recipes that you won’t know where to start!
There are also other recipes that you can try to top off your Powercake, eat with your Powercake, or eat instead of a Powercake.
This is what truly got me started experimenting on my kids pancakes.
My personal favorite is the 3 ingredient pumpkin power cake. YUMMY! And SO easy!
Oh, and one last thing… you can make extra and have them again tomorrow Time saver!!
