Cook's Notes:

My daughter is concerned about her children getting the proper nutrients in their meals. Her one-year old daughter loved smoothies and we had some left over one evening, so I suggested we put it in pancakes the following morning. It has now become a favorite for the entire family, morning, noon or night.
