Mother’s day is a wonderful opportunity for the kids to help make a breakfast for mom. Here we make whole wheat pancakes with apple sauce and whipped cream. The beauty of this recipe is that it comes together quickly with lots of opportunities for my 5 and 7 year old’s to help out. The whipped cream recipe can be made from start to finish by a child. Peeling and chopping are also great activities for little helpers, and it’s all that’s required to make the apple sauce. The pancakes are made by initially combining the wet ingredients separately from the dry ingredients, so each child gets a bowl (and everyone is busy and happy). The kids then take turns stirring the final batter, with the key being to stir just enough to combine the wet and dry ingredients without over-stirring, yielding the fluffiest, softest Mother’s Day pancakes.
