What do you make for breakfast the day after Thanksgiving? Most of us want to eat those leftovers as long as possible from actual Thanksgiving. An entire plate of turkey and cranberries and stuffing at seven in the morning is an ideal breakfast for some, but in the event that you don’t want dinner for breakfast, and that you want to try and eat as healthy as possible even in the midst of holiday meals, you can make cranberry pancakes and even freeze them for later.
By utilizing whole wheat flower, egg beaters, eliminating salt and incorporating skim milk, these pancakes become a healthy breakfast to delight your taste buds!
