Well … maybe they aren’t really made for pancakes – but they are made for doing special things you might not have time to do during the week. One of those things is making breakfast for my husband. Gone are the days of Bisquick pancakes (don’t tell my kids) because we’re moving on to something with a greater nutritional punch such as Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes with flax.
