***My two toddlers LOVE these. I either make them extra tiny for them; pour tablespoons of batter onto pan -OR- cut them up into strips and have them dip their “French Fry Pancakes!” into a little bowl of warmed butter with maple syrup mixture. They stuff themselves silly and get tons of protein and whole grains to start off their day.
