I love playing with pancake batters. I recently made some Whole Wheat Zucchini Carrot Pancakes and decided to take them to the next lever with a Cream Cheese-Maple Syrup. And oh, oh, oh, my word! Yes...these are safe to call dinner. Or breakfast. Or lunch. Or an after school snack. Or a midnight snack. Or all of the above. (But maybe not in the same day!!?!!) These pancakes are made with whole wheat flour and maple syrup. So they are actually good for you. (Despite the fact that the name of the recipe sounds like a dessert. They are the real deal for a meal!)
