VIDEO: An Easy, Healthy, Make-Ahead Breakfast Sandwich Kids Will LoveDecember 17th, 2015
Parents know that sometimes kids can take forever to eat breakfast. Luckily, Molly Sims has a clever trick that’s making even grown-ups crave a giant bite of this ultra-energizing breakfast to-go. Hint: It involves marrying pancakes with a classic comfort food.
As Molly Sims says, “Eat like a king in the morning, a princess for lunch, and a pauper for dinner.” (Words of wisdom she picked up from her own mom.) This metabolism-revving practice is important to instill in kids from the get-go.
As tempting as those sugary cereals with loveable cartoon characters on the box can be, this breakfast-in-a-breeze is much healthier and way more satisfying. Kids love pancakes. Kids love PB&Js. So why not fuse the two to make a superfood sandwich little ones will flip for?
But these aren’t just any pancakes—they’re healthified with gluten-free coconut flour. Whip up a batch on a Sunday, freeze them, you’ll be set for breakfast for the rest of the week. Every morning, just defrost and reheat, and then load those babies up with almond butter, jam, and honey, and sandwich two cakes together. Done and done. Try to resist taking a bite before you bag it up for baby.
Press play to see how it all comes together.
