Healthy Start Pancakes

I have a picky eater in my house. Since there are very few things he likes to eat, I try to make those things as healthy as possible. Since pancakes are a big staple for him, I decided to go about trying to make a really healthy and hearty version that will keep him going throughout the day. After much trial and error I came up with this version that I think is healthy and pretty yummy! They freeze great, so I like to make up a big batch and stick them in a freezer bag. On a busy morning I stick one in the microwave making an easy breakfast that I can feel good about feeding to my kids!
