Spoil your sweetheart with these wholesome and delicious Valentine’s Day pancakes!
When it comes to celebrating holidays I always go overboard! I love to celebrate anything and everything. Since our girls were small, I’ve made festive pancakes; meaning, every holiday the Saturday morning pancakes got holiday themed sprinkles.
This is my Valentine’s Day version, these Valentine’s Day pancakes are wholesome and fun, so they’re a win for moms and a win for kids! If you can believe it, I’ve made these pancakes for my kids since they were tiny babies, and they’re now both teenagers, but guess what, they still want these Valentine’s Day pancakes! It’s a tradition!
When I make pancakes, I like to use a half-and-half blend of white unbleached flour and white whole wheat flour. The pancakes come out light and fluffy, but have some added texture from the white whole wheat flour, which I absolutely love!
And then when you add sprinkles to the batter and again over the top, it’s like breakfast perfection! Sometimes, Mad will request dark chocolate chips in hers too, instead of syrup and those are…to-die-for!
