The problem with pancakes

I love pancakes.  My wife loves pancakes.  My kids love pancakes.

Pancakes are a problem.

The problem with pancakes is that they just don’t fill me up very quickly.  They become a vehicle for whatever variety of syrup we’ve got around that day.  I know it doesn’t sound like much of a problem but because I love them, I’m weak-willed, I drown them in syrup, and they don’t fill me up very quickly, I end up eating way more than I need to.

The solution?

Dee’s Cereal Whole Grain Pancakes!

Super yummy, full of all the goodness found in Dee’s Cereal, and they will actually fill you up and keep you going.  They’re not much more time consuming to make than regular pancakes either.  Alright, they’re harder than pouring water on a mix of Krusteaz but I’m talking about making pancakes the awesome way; from scratch.
