Silver Dollar Pancakes with Krusteaz
As a child, my dad traveled a lot for work. I did not see him nearly as often as I wanted. Of course, he was and still is my hero. He is the one I think could move mountains if he wanted to! I have very clear memories of him making both chocolate milk what seemed like every night that he was home and making us pancakes for dinner. He knew our favorites were the small silver dollar pancakes. Tonight, memories flooded my mind of great memories I have from my childhood that I seemed to take for granted far too often. I stood over my stove just like my dad did many years ago making pancakes for MY babies with Krusteaz Pancake Mix. We had pancakes for dinner often when I was a child and now my kids also enjoy pancakes for dinner!
My son indulging in his silver dollar pancakes from Krusteaz for dinner tonight.
Silver Dollar Pancakes – Quick, Easy and Perfectly Portioned
Aside from the memories I have with silver dollar pancakes, there are other benefits. Since they are small, it can make your child feel like they have eaten a lot but they have really only had a portion perfect for their age. You can give them three or four silver dollar pancakes in place of one regular sized pancake. Have you noticed how children (and even adults), feel like they need multiples when it comes to eating? It does not seem to matter how big or small but they just want several of whatever it is that they are eating. Smaller pancakes mean you can eat multiple pancakes without the added calories!
Silver dollar pancakes are also easier to flip. Since they are small, they tend to cook a little quicker which makes them much easier to flip without a mess!
I love making my pancakes with Krusteaz because they ALWAYS come out fluffy. I now have another reason I love Krusteaz pancake mixes. They now have Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancakes with Protein. In just a half cup of mix, there are 13 grams of protein! That means you will feel even fuller while eating less!
If you are not a fan of the added protein, try the plain buttermilk. You can add fresh fruit, whipped cream, or even chocolate chips to make your pancakes just how you prefer. I am a syrup and butter only type of girl when it comes to my pancakes.
Waffles, YUM! Waffles are one of my favorite breakfast foods. When it comes to my waffles, I love to add a little-powdered sugar on top of the butter and syrup. Krusteaz Belgian Waffles are tasty as can be!
In the morning, in the words of Donkey off of Shrek, “I’m making waffles!”
