My kiddo doesn’t start school until after Labor Day so we’ve still got a few weeks left to soak up summer. I know a lot of you though, are in full-swing back-to-school mode (wah-wah). These Oat and Honey Pancakes are the perfect way to start the school day! Thick and fluffy, made with whole wheat and white flour, oats, and sweetened with honey . My kids love them, and I love knowing they are starting their day with a hearty, healthy meal.
We like to stack a few, add some fresh fruit on top, then drizzle the pancakes with a really simple honey butter syrup. It really is just honey + butter + syrup. And it’s pretty much heaven over these pancakes.
You can make a batch (or two) at the beginning of the week and pop them in the toaster or microwave for a quick breakfast before school when you’re in a hurry!
