QUICK FIXES FOR BOXED PANCAKE MIX
You do it, I do it, we all do it. You know what I’m talking about. Dare I say out loud that we use boxed pancake mix instead of making pancakes from scratch! C’mon, we live in the real world where convenience is a must. Here are several ways to add a nutritious home-made touch to your favorite boxed mix. 

Banana Pancakes:

1 large egg
¾ cup low-fat milk
1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
1 large banana, mashed
¼ cup Orange Puree (click for simple reicpe)
1 cup boxed pancake mix
¼ cup wheat germ

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, oil, mashed banana, and Orange Puree. Add boxed pancake mix and wheat germ, mixing just until combined (don’t over mix - leave small lumps). If the batter is too thick, add a little more milk.

Chocolate Pancakes:

1 large egg
¾ cup low-fat milk
1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
½ cup Purple Puree (click for simple recipe)
1 cup boxed pancake mix
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
¼ cup oat bran
¼ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, optional

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, oil, and Purple Puree. Add boxed pancake mix, cocoa powder, and oat bran, and chocolate chips, if using, mixing just until combined (don’t over mix - leave small lumps). If the batter is too thick, add a little more milk.
