Whole wheat pancakes might not sound so enticing to anyone who's used to eating regular pancakes made with white flour... buuuut, whole wheat alternatives are healthier than its processed counterpart - and this recipe's pretty good! ;)
The bananas add just the right amount of sweetness and if you're a fan of bananas (and banana bread), you can try to add a bit more of it if you like. Not a fan of this fruit? Then you can try substituting with blueberries or raspberries (as the maker of this recipe suggests). I have yet to try that out (and since I love berries, I think it'll be a hit with me haha).

She asked me to make heart shaped pancakes (and I wish I had a mold but I didn't so the shape
looked a bit weird hehe) Good thing kids are easy to please so she liked them anyway! ;)

6. Serve with warm maple syrup and a side of fruit. And don’t forget to freeze the

You can freeze the leftover pancakes and place them in between sheets of wax paper and store inside a ziplock bag for future use! ;)
