It is a trick to get my kids to eat veggies, so I started using jars of baby food in pancakes to boost the nutritional value. I prefer the orange vegetables such and carrots, sweet potatoes, and corn and sweet potatoes. The pureed consistency mixes easily into the pancakes and the flavor I have found can be quite tasty. It isn't just for the kids, either. This is so flexible I have used jars of fruit too, but since the veggies are the hardest thing for me to get my kids to eat, I usually use those. You can add wheat germ for an added nutritional boost. I like to use the Log Cabin Lite syrup - there is no high fructose corn syrup and the reduced sugar does not seems to reduce the taste at all. These can be frozen or refrigerated after being made for easy make ahead breakfasts. You could also use pancake mix as your dry ingredient base, I suppose. Have fun!
