My kids LOVE these, and they are great cooked the night before and heated for 15-30 seconds in the microwave for a quick breakfast on the go! For an even more special treat, try dipping in some sugar-free pancake syrup!
ADDITION: Instead of just dipping in syrup, try adding 3Tbs syrup to the pancake batter, so that sweet goodness is baked right in!
