I got this recipe from a fellow blogger friend. Julia over at Juggling with Julia. Check her site out, she’s a lot like most of you, a working mom making things work a healthy way for her and her family. Thanks Julia I can’t wait to try these for my family this weekend!! I hope to make these Saturday morning as a little guilt treat for my daughter because she is going to stay at Nana’s house with Nana and TT so daddy and mommy can have a date night 🙂 I feel bad so why not fill her up with yummy pancakes!! Honestly I’m scared, I’ve never made pancakes from scratch LOL….that and well I’m proud that I have all of these ingredients in my home!!
