Healthy Blender Banana Oatmeal Pancakes + Weekly Menu

I knew that our spring was going to be bonkers, but MAN has it been the case. This is the first weekend that we’ve actually been home, all 4 of us, and it has been busy yet. Every single weekend has been crazy, crazy – and we’ve got a few more weekends to go before things for us calm down for summer. This week alone, I’m back and forth from Chicago THREE times.

I said I wasn’t going to complain about the fun and the resulting chaos. This morning, I was geared up to “sleep in” and yep – still up by 7am. What a curse. I miss the days where it was a possibility of getting caught up on sleep.

Not only are the weekends bonkers, but Shea has an activity 5 days a week. And of course they’re never at opportune times. As in, they’re always at meal times. And AYSO, for the love…giving a ticket for the concession stand after EVERY practice or game is absolutely ridiculous. I wonder how other parents feel about trying to provide a balanced meal when up against a Snickers bar or Italian ice at 6:30pm.

BIGGEST EYE ROLL EVER. And not only is it meal time, but standing in the line with ALL of the other kids in the less-than-ideal weather while hangry is just such a joy. My goal of motherhood should be find a way to do it in joy with a whole lot less cynicism.

This week, I’m rolling over. I made brunch today for ME and breakfast cookies for ME. And our weekly menu revolves around my choosy eaters because for the love, dinner time needs to be a bit less contentious for my mental and emotional well-being! This mama is whipped on the dinner front!

A recent win, which we made for dinner, was a reappearance of these pancakes that were recommended by my podcast co-host. Her family loved these blender pancakes and there’s no secret as to why: simple, banana-cinnamon pancakes that are made with dietitian mom-approved ingredients. The girls loved them and served alongside some sausage and fruit…I, for once, had some VERY happy little girls at the dinner table.
