Healthy Pancakes

Everyone loves pancakes right? Even me, I could eat them every day. Everyone is much more conscious about being healthy (and of course that our children have a healthy diet too) but we all know that sometimes is not easy for them to like some of the healthy options. Therefore, we can create nice recipes with healthy ingredients and they will never know the change. We just need to make some changes in the ingredients, for example, change the sugar to agave, and the flour to spelt flour or other whole option.
