This recipe makes a huge stack of pancakes.  I take them and layer with freezer paper in between then place in a freezer bag.  Freeze until needed.  You can pull them out of the freezer one at a time in the morning.  These don’t really need any topping.  They are great on their own.  If you want, you can add just a light dusting of powdered sugar.

Part of my goals for the new year is to eat healthier.  Choose whole grains instead of refined grain products. Here are some innovative ways to add more vegetables, fruits, and whole grains to your day while watching your refined carbohydrates, sugar, and fat intake.  You can also stock your kitchen with a variety of foods that you can throw together for healthy meals in a hurry. Keep these foods on hand for fast meals on busy nights.
 

 
Be sure to visit the American Cancer Society’s A Healthier Holiday Table for even more great healthy recipes.  I was not paid or perked in any way for my participation in this event.  The recipe and all opinions are my own.
