A delicious fun breakfast with the family isn’t always a weekend event, it can also be a great start on a weekday: specially a school day. A tasty breakfast for a special day could be these Banana & Berries Mini Pancake Stacks.

Banana & Berries Mini Pancake Stacks

The first couple weeks of August, we were frantically trying to shop for school supplies. This was the first year I had to shop for all three boys. I thought it was going to be one of the more difficult parts of back-to-school.

Then last week I realized our meal plans and grocery trips were going to have to adjust. My first grocery trip to Walmart was just to gather lunch supplies and school snacks. Then, I had to make a meal plan with breakfast and dinners. The first week of school I wanted fun meals for the kids. I let them pick out some favorites.

Sir Bananas at Walmart

One request from the kids was pancakes and fruit. Well while I was at Walmart, I grabbed some Sir Bananas® Bananamilk and Sir Bananas® Chocolate Bananamilk. With 8 essential nutrients (Protein, Calcium, Potassium, Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Vitamin B12, Riboflavin (vitamin B2) and Phosphorus) and no high-fructose corn syrup, it is delicious for smoothies, recipes and more. As a milk the whole family loves, why not make some fun mini pancakes with both flavors?
