It’s a good morning when pancakes are piled high on your plate, but it’s a great morning when they’re not just yummy but good for you, too! Skip the boxed mix and make them from scratch with a few simple, healthy ingredients, including rolled oats, a banana and a scoop of all-natural protein powder. Top your stack with chopped peaches and a fresh cream sauce that can be whipped up quicker than you can open a bottle of sugary syrup.
