As the New Year starts a lot of us have to recover from all the amazing food and dessert. I know the feeling all too well. I mean the holiday gives a reason to eat sweets and good food, right?

 Once the holiday is over we feel the need to diet, detox or even cut back.

Well, now that we are back to the regularly scheduled program, I find it a tad bit hard to give up things I enjoy. So instead I try to make dishes much healthier.

 That brings me to these Whole Wheat Pancakes with a Strawberry Vanilla Compote. Our family enjoys pancakes. Our ultimate favorite recipe can be found here. I wanted to make this recipe a tab bit healthier and still enjoyable. And that is exactly what I did!

The boys could not tell the difference. I was so excited because my oldest son is a picky eater and can normally tell the difference when I make adjustments even when they are minor. So we have a winner!

Now about my other son, he eats pretty much anything. I could barely finish making them without him wanting to eat them fresh off the griddle.

As for the Strawberry Vanilla Compote. It is not complicated as you may think. All you need is strawberries, sugar, and vanilla. Place everything in a saucepan and just make sure you watch it and stir. It will break down slowly.  Feel free to cook to the consistency of your preference. That’s about it.


These whole wheat pancakes can also be paired with this Easy Berry Fruit Salad.

    I’ve never tried making whole wheat pancakes before, but that’s about to change. And, fruit compotes are just a favorite around here. Love strawberries, especially this time of year.
