Peach Pancakes

I've been trying a lot of new recipes lately and this one I just had to share. As far as I'm concerned, anything that is a.) a big hit with the kids and b.) healthy, is worth sharing! If you love peaches, you're going to love this:

Healthy Peach Pancakes

1 c. flour (either all purpose or whole wheat)
1 c. oats
2 T. sugar
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. cinnamon
1 t. salt
2 eggs
1.5 c. milk
1 T. canola oil
1 peach pureed

In a medium bowl combine flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. In a separate bowl whisk together the milk, eggs & oil. Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture & mix well. Add in peach puree and mix well. Pour onto hot griddle by 1/4 cups. Makes approx. 18 pancakes.

Now, here's some make-ahead tips: 1. puree the peach the night before if you're going to make these for breakfast (especially on a school or work day) 2. do the same for the flour/oat mixture and make sure you put it in an air tight container.
