These little heart pancakes were easy to do-just fill a plastic sandwhich bag with pancake batter, cut a small opening in the tip of the bag and pipe out hearts to your heart’s desire! I also piped white icing in the shape of hearts onto the pancakes and sprinkled on some Valentine colored nonpareils. Tasty! My little guys love helping make the pancake batter, but once the griddle comes out Mommy has to do the rest. You can also pipe jelly onto the pancakes for added color-just be sure to use the kind without the chunks.I like adapting my Betty Crocker pancake recipe-I use some wheat flower (approximately 1/3 of the total flour content) and add in some pureed sweet potatoes in place of the sugar and for extra vitamins. ¬†For more fun things to do with your kids keep checking back-and for your own custom baby and children’s items e-mail me at shannon@coffeycreationsforkids.com !

Pancake recipe-2 cups regular flour, 1/2 cup wheat flour, 2 tablespoonfuls baking powder, 2 tablespoonfuls canola oil, 2 omega eggs, 1/2-3/4 cup pureed sweet potato, 1 tbsp wheat germ, 1 tbsp flaxseed meal. This is actually a double recipe-I make lots of little pancakes and freeze what isn’t eaten. They heat up fast in the microwave for those mornings when you’re rushing to get everyone ready for school!
