Homemade Wholegrain Pancake Mix

A recent change in my daughter's daycare schedule had my husband dropping hear earlier than usual in the morning, and so I was compelled to pack breakfast for her. Planning for her breakfast took me a while as I was committed to keeping healthy as well as appealing for her, which can be an arduous challenge! Since I leave to work at dawn each day, I had very less time at hand and desperately needed easy and quick recipes. 

Well, necessity is the mother of invention and I somehow came up with this wholesome and quick recipe, comprised of whole grains, Chia seeds, Flaxseed and Chopped sunflower seeds. Now breakfast is a breeze and I am content that she is eating healthy.. 

You can serve the pancake with Honey, Maple syrup, Homemade Blueberry sauce, Nutella, Peanut Butter or any other syrup of your choice.
