Maybe it’s because of back-to-school, but lately, I’ve been getting a lot of SOS messages from moms asking for fast but filling breakfast ideas. I’m not suggesting that pancakes and waffles are really going to make it onto your table in 60 seconds, but where there’s a will there’s a way. If the thought of making something from scratch at 7am is unappealing to you, how about mixing the wet and dry ingredients separately the night before? Then, all you have to do in the morning is mix them together in a bowl and scoop some batter into the waffle iron or the griddle. Simple. But if that’s still too much for you when you’re feeling bleary eyed, exhausted and just want to get everyone out the door well-fed, follow in my foot steps. I like to make a huge batch of pancakes or waffles on the weekend and store them in labeled freezer bags so all cooking breakfast entails for me is warming some in the toaster oven and serving with fresh fruit or syrup. It’s easier than putting out cereal and by the time everyone’s at the table you’ll look like you made them the perfect breakfast from scratch and give your little ones a life-long feeling that Mom always cared about giving them the best — even at the crack of dawn! Here are TWELVE, yes 12 Pancakes and Waffles to keep those bellies full and those hearts warm with breakfast love!
