Funfetti Pancakes

I was listening to a podcast yesterday and the person being interviewed was talking about the importance of understanding what goes into all your food. Now, I'll admit that my diet in the last couple months hasn't deserved any blue ribbon awards. But - when I was standing in my kitchen last night opening and closing cabinets, staring at the refrigerator, and pacing back and forth ... I had no idea what to make.

Then, it came to me. I wanted pancakes. Homemade pancakes are shockingly easy to make. While I agree that Bisquick is delicious, you don't absolutely need it. Plus, when you make things from scratch you know everything that is inside that meal. Now I know that funfetti pancakes have 7 ingredients and only take you like 15 minutes to make. If you happen to be texting at the same time, it'll take you 20. To be completely honest, I only made these whole wheat because I was completely out of regular flour. I'm pretty confident that I'm not any healthier for it because of the sprinkles, syrup, and butter.... but it still feels like a win. Also, it made a dent in the giant container of sprinkles I had to buy for the funfetti cinnamon rolls.

So here's how it goes. Essentially mix it all together and then put it on a griddle.

  1. Combine your dry ingredients - flour, baking powder, sugar.
  2. Combine your wet ingredients - eggs and milk.
  3. Mix your two bowls together and then add in the melted butter. If you have lemon juice, you can add it now.
  4. While your pan / skillet / griddle gets hot, you can add in your sprinkles. I didn't exactly measure, but just start with 1/4 cup and add until you get the right balance you are hoping for.
  5. Cook your pancakes as you normally would.
