Kid-Friendly Protein Pancakes Recipe

After I made the Lactation Cookies the other day, I decided to try the brewer’s yeast in my standard oatmeal pancakes I usually the kids. I added a little extra of other ingredients and they actually came out really yummy and the kids have asked for them almost every day for the last week! These pancakes are tasty, fluffy, moist and best of all, they freeze well!

Brewer’s yeast is an amazing source of protein and nutrients, derived from sugar beets. It is especially good for nursing moms, dieters, hypoglycemics, and those with eczema. For more information on the greatness of brewer’s yeast, check out my original post on lactation cookies.

Awesome Pancakes!!! Just made them for lunch for my toddler and I. He gobbled his pancake right up. I added a teaspoon of flax and used 1/4c of applesauce only because I have no eggs currently. Thanks for the great recipe

Thanks for your post! I have twins that are exclusively nursing too! Well, I'm mostly pumping and bottle feeding in order to keep up, but now that they are both eating 30 oz per day, mans I've gone back to work, I can barely keep up! I still have two freezers full from all the pumping they didn't need when they were little, but I want to be sure to make enough to get them through a full year. Thanks so much for the posts. I'm going to try bothof these recipes today!
