What better way to celebrate the spookiest day of the year than with some pumpkin pancakes?! Okay, okay…time out. We don’t really ever need an excuse to make pancakes around here, but we do love when we can switch it up and have a little fun! And this is another one of our brand new delicious recipes in The Transform App! PS. If you don’t already know, our 2.0 launch is happening in less than a week, so you better get in the know! You think you already love 1.0? Welp…you’re mind is about to be blown!!
One of our favorite ways to spend time together is actually bonding in the kitchen! It gives us a chance to not only teach our kiddos some necessarily life skills, but it gives us an opportunity to teach them how they can make healthier versions of their favorite foods!
And aside from the actual cooking part, it allows us to spend time together! We can catch up with what’s going on at school, and we can laugh and joke, and honestly, just make our family ties that much stronger. Making time for family doesn’t have to include an elaborate vacation or time away from everything else; sometimes the best memories are made each morning in the kitchen. 😉
Plus, these pumpkin pancakes turned out completely adorable, if I do say so myself! And we had so many laughs making them AND eating them! All you need is one hungry family, two corny Halloween jokes (here’s one for you), and a dash of love. #MomLife
