I love breakfast for dinner, and I especially love omelets and pancakes. We make all kinds of pancakes – chocolate chip pancakes, pumpkin pie pancakes, carrot cake pancakes, apple ring pancakes, bananas foster pancakes, and baked pancakes. They are a perfect breakfast or dinner (or lunch, I suppose) because they’re quick and easy, and paired with eggs or ham and some fruit, they make for a satisfying and filling meal. At home, we make pancakes and eggs for dinner often. When we’re eating out though, we really like to have them for breakfast. We aren’t fortunate enough to have an IHOP close to home, but we really look forward to eating at IHOP when we go to the beach at Rehoboth, Delaware. I love that their omelets come with pancakes, and their syrup is buttery and sweet. Oh, the indulgence! I was happy to hear that I could get IHOP at HomeÃ‚® Syrup at my grocery store. I’ll be able to enjoy that rich flavor in between our annual trips to the shore! You can visit the IHOP at Home website to find out where to get them in your area. We put this recipe together because we had a few sweet potatoes that needed to be used up. You know that sweet potatoes are a super food, right? They’re packed with beta carotene and a bunch of other stuff that’s good for you. Even though these pancakes are healthy, both Grace and Allie loved them! The pancakes’ flavor is very similar to the pumpkin pie pancakes I also love, and they were only a wee bit more work than normal pancakes.Don’t worry about the whole wheat flour in these pancakes. You can’t taste the whole wheat flour at all. If you don’t have any, though, feel free to substitute with white flour.
IHOP at HomeÃ‚® Syrup
We tried all three kinds of IHOP at Home syrups–Original, Lite, and Sugar-Free. Honestly, I didn’t love the Lite. I can’t explain why, but I didn’t like it as much as the Original and the Sugar Free. The Sugar Free syrup was thinner than the Original, but it tasted good. It was sweet and had no strange chemical taste or aftertaste. I’m a stickler for reading labels; I noticed the IHOP at Home Sugar Free syrup has no aspartame and no saccharine, both of which I avoid religiously. It had about 20 calories per 2 tablespoons. The Original syrup was thick and buttery. It was rich and wonderful and amazing. I would have liked to have eaten it on many, many pancakes, but it has more calories than Sugar Free, and I didn’t have enough calories left for the day to enjoy it on my pancakes.
