My boys LOVE pancakes.  And I really love making it for them.  I am constantly trying to tweak recipes to make them healthier.  There is a fine line between healthy and gross.  I keep trying until the food is still yummy but healthy.  These pancakes meet both criteria and they were a huge hit with my boys.
