Easy whole wheat “Hot Cakes”

So my ajebutters and I love pancakes. Yes I described them as “Hot cakes” too but there is an explanation.. According to google, pancakes can also be called “flap jack” and “hot cakes” it all depends on what part of the world you are located. Now to my short story…

So, after world pancake day I kept thinking of an easy way to make pancakes and get in my daily dose of healthy because my babies love pancakes and so do I, but I always got weary of making it due to the use of white flour. You see, I am trying to stay healthy with lower calories and more fruits and vegetables. So, while thinking, I was having a conversation with Shakirat about peppers and everything inbetween and she said “bring me some pancakes when you are done.” and I replied “No pancake for you. I will give all to baby.” I love Ara (her baby), she is always smiling. Anyway, I told Shakirat that all the pancakes would be going to Ara while I give her some eba and palmoil lol!!! And yes I will watch Ara eat it all 😛

So Ara baby here are your pancakes…My ajebutters loved it, so I am sure you will 🙂
