Two-Bite Pancake Bites

Breakfast for the Busy Family Just Got Easier

Pancakes. Yummy, maplefantastic, goodness. Pancakes are a special treat for my kids (because I hardly ever make them – the bowls, the pan, the spills…my life is too busy for pancakes). THUNDERBOLT!: Someone invented ready to serve Two-Bite pancake bites. Yes, friends it is true…

Made from scratch, buttermilk pancakes from those darling people who make Two-Bite brownies (which if you come to my house – you will find on the right hand side of the snack cupboard. Always). I like those Two-Bite people.

So did I ever tell you the time I tried to make two bite pancakes for the kids myself? - (it was after a trip to Germany and the kids were craving good ol’ Canadian pancakes) I mixed. I poured. I flipped. I handed out. I threw in the compost because they didn’t like it. #FAIL

Enter the Two-Bite people and their pancakes. Easy and yummy (the pancakes – not the people – I don’t know if the people are either easy or yummy and really…it’s none of my business). Whether the kids are sitting at the kitchen table or snacking en route to Karate class – Two-Bite pancake bites are the perfect size for little fingers (and mouths). Now, I will say they are sweet (the syrup is baked right in! oh yum) but I expect sweet from a pancake.

I let my kids have as many Two-Bite pancake bites as they have hands (one likes the Morning Maple flavour whereas my chocoholic child prefers the Chocolate Chip flavour).

Kid: “How many can I have?” Me: “How many hands do you have?” Kid: “2” Me: “Then you can have 2” (between the Two-Bite portion control and my kid trickery we’ve got consumption down pat).

I really like the idea of having these on a brunch table (you know when you have a mix of adults and kids - you never know what everyone will eat?). Put them (right out of the package or warmed in the microwave) between the croissants and fruit for a nibbly everyone will like.

Or put them in a reusable container for school sweet treat (snack #3 at our school).

And I LOVE LOVE this idea: a Two-Bite pancake bite on a fruit skewer!

Or have a backwards breakfast-for-dinner night where you start with a Two-Bite pancake bite, move on to sliced apples and finish with toast and eggs! (my kids adore crazy dinner night).

Two-Bite pancake bites and a movie night.

Two-Bite pancake bites after the kids go to bed night.  (Ok, I digress).

What I’m saying here people, is that maplefantastic pancake goodness is no longer out of menu for the busy family on a weekday (or weekend).  And don’t we all deserve a little more goodness in our lives?
