Recipe: Fruity Pancakes

As with many multi-kid families, our mornings are always busy! We got school on weekdays. We got Church on Sunday mornings. Saturday mornings for half the year is some sport. So when on earth is there time to make big fancy breakfasts? We simply can't find that kind of time so we do Breakfast for Dinner 2-3 times a month. This way we get a full "fancy" breakfast without being rushed AND it's a cheap dinner.

So this past week (including this week) we've had to tighten our spending until payday. I'm sure you all have had this happen. SO we have to use what we have in the house. Sunday evenings we also do church stuff (have I mentioned Richland Creek Community Church is the best place ever on Earth?) and I had to come up with something quick. We decided on pancakes. Plain pancakes get boring and we had no fresh fruit. So, I added some Post Fruity Pebbles and made a few silver dollar pancakes for each person to try and see if they wanted those or plain ones. 4 out of the 5 people, wanted the Fruity Pebbles kind. They are so easy, look super cute and dont taste as gross as they might sound.

The Fruity Pebbles adds a slight fruitiness and doesnt really make them much sweeter. It's kind of odd. All you have to do is add a scoop of fruity pebbles to your batter and that's it! It's that plain and simple to make your plain and simple pancakes less plain and simple. *smile*

I want to buy Cocoa Pebbles and try those. Slight chocolate flavor without being super chocolaty? That sounds right up my alley! Less messy than chocolate chips too! Now there are healthy/natural versions of Fruity Pebbles that I am sure would work as well. My 1 son (who was the one person who didnt like the pancakes) is very particular with cereal and wont eat natural or generic Pebbles :( I think any small cereal like Pebbles should work. 

Give them a try!
