Breakfast is one of my favorite meals, primarily because it’s so easy to make. You know me, I’m all about quick and easy meals. Needless to say, I was super excited when I found out that this month’s theme was pancakes. I’ve been making them for my family for years, but this is my favorite recipe. Yes, I’ve used the mixes before, but, honestly, making pancakes from scratch is just as easy. And they taste so much better, too.

While I’m not a fan of meals that are loaded with sugar, I am a fan of versatile meals where you can substitute sugary with fresh and better-for-you. Like these fluffy pancakes. Rather than drown them in syrup, I prefer a homemade fruit compote. Not as sweet, but, still sweet enough to be a delicious topping for homemade pancakes.
