I love finding ways to add a little oomph in nutrition to my kiddos favorite treats. We have become big users of chia. Heck, just to keep everyone's insides working well, we add a tidbit of psyllium husk. Can top with anything. We love strawberries and maple syrup, bananas with nutella, or just plain ol' boysenberry syrup.

  • Heat butter in a griddle over medium-high heat. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

Cook's Notes:

The longer the psyllium sits, the more it gels the pancake mix, do not make this the night before.

Milk can be substituted for water if desired. Any tropical fruit juice can be used in place of the orange juice.
