    Making Mayo’s Recipes: Pancakes for busy school mornings

whole wheat pumpkin pancakes on an orange breakfast plateIf your children are running off to school without sitting down for breakfast, try these make-ahead whole-wheat pumpkin pancakes or banana oatmeal pancakes. Freeze individual pancakes, so kids can reheat them in the microwave or toaster and top with fruit. You can also refrigerate these batters overnight and cook pancakes in the morning — that's quicker than starting from scratch.

Each week, one of the more than 100 video recipes from the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program is featured on the Mayo Clinic News Network — just in time for you to try over the weekend. You also can have the recipes delivered via the Mayo Clinic App.

These recipes are created by the executive wellness chef and registered dietitians at the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program. Find more recipes and other healthy living insights on the Mayo Clinic App.
