Breakfast of Champs

There is nothing I love more than waking up on a Sunday morning and heading to the kitchen to make myself a delicious, warm breakfast. With so much going on during the week, I use the weekend to slow down a bit, recharge and cook my favorite meals.
 
One of these meals is my pancakes with fresh berries and maple syrup. You might notice that the pancakes pictured above have a brown tint to them. Instead of using bleached, white flour, I include whole grain flour in the recipe. It has more fiber and nutrients than white flour and is just as tasty. I'm sharing this recipe with y'all because these pancakes are made with simple ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry.
 
For those of who you have never made pancakes, I encourage you to start with this recipe. Your confidence in making them will grow over time and you'll soon find yourself wanting to put your own twist on this recipe. Maybe you'll add chocolate chips. Maybe you'll add lemon zest. The great thing is that you have so many options of ingredients you can add to this recipe to make them uniquely yours.
 
PANCAKES WITH FRESH BERRIES 
 
INGREDIENTS
1 cup Whole Grain Flour
¼ tsp Salt
¼ tsp Baking Soda
1 Tbsp Sugar
1 Tbsp Melted Butter
1 Egg Beaten
1 cup Buttermilk
1 tsp Butter
½ cup Fresh Blueberries
 
INSTRUCTIONS
Mix flour, salt, baking soda and sugar in a large bowl.
 
Add melted butter, egg and buttermilk and whisk until incorporated.
 
 Heat nonstick pan and dot with butter.
 
In a small, lightly buttered pan over medium heat, spoon ¼ cup-fulls of batter. When batter begins to bubble, turn pancake and cook until golden brown. 
 
Serve with fresh blueberries and maple syrup.
  
  
Phone Bowl
 
Whenever Nicole and I sit down and have a meal with the boys, we put the phonebowl on the table. It's our way of guaranteeing that we're not distracted by technology and can focus on spending quality time with each other.  If your kids are tech savvy, I encourage you to get a phonebowl for your family. It's a fun way for the kids to release their phones. Just don't forget to set an example and throw your phone in there too!
