Pancake-apalooza

Pancake-apalooza

Every morning I ask Esme, “What would you like for breakfast?” And every day she answers the same way. “Pancakes.” Which is sort of mean since I’m only willing to make pancakes on the weekend. And she knows it and has – in her three year old way – come up with a way to encourage me. “Today is special so I’d like pancakes.” She doesn’t always supply me with why the day is special. So most days I have to say no and would she like toast or yogurt or cereal.

Even though we only have pancakes once a week I am starting to feel like it’s too much treat too often. We had to switch from ice cream to frozen yogurt for the same reason. So, I’m on the hunt for a healthy pancake recipe. I’m after that mythical balance of healthy and delicious. Who wants pancakes on Sunday morning if it feels like a virtuous obligation? I put up the question on my Facebook page and immediately got three recipes from friends. I’m going to try those ideas, plus a buckwheat pancake recipe from Goop and an oatmeal pancake recipe from Orangette (the oatmeal and buttermilk are already doing their thing in the fridge.

I’ll report back on our findings.
