My abuelita, grandma, always taught me that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. For us working mamas, breakfast can be a hassle, am I right? Between getting ready for work, getting your child ready, getting your husbands stuff ready… Its definitely a work out!

Drum-roll Please… Chocolate Pancakes!
You only need a few ingredients –
All Purpose flour
Salt / Brown Sugar
Dissolved NESTLÉ® NIDO® Fortificada Milk
Unsalted butter (Melted)
Mix it all together and TADA
Believe it or not, pancakes were always a tradition at my home when I was little back in Venezuela. My mom, aunts, and grandma used to make them from scratch, so I do the same to my son. Since he is a chocolate lover, I decided to give our traditional pancakes a fun and delicious twist by adding Nestlé Nesquik®. It makes it incredibly delicious and I like adding Nestlé Nesquik® as an ingredient to the pancakes recipe because it has 8 grams of protein and 40% daily calcium.
Also, this recipe is for the whole family!!! I usually give everyone one or two pancakes and we all paired them with NESTLÉ® NIDO® Fortificada which is amazing specially for my kiddo. This makes for a great kid friendly breakfast.
Two ingredients you could always fiend at my grandma’s was Nestlé Nesquik® and ‘Leche en Polvo’ – Powder Milk. That is another tradition I still keep at our home.
I love like this recipe because it is kid-friendly and my 1.5 year old boy loves to eat these pancakes while sipping on NESTLÉ® NIDO® Fortificada. Can you say Mom Win!? Nido Fortificada helps support his amazing growth and development. NIDO® Fortificada is specially formulated with milk, vitamins and minerals and we can easily find it at the Walmart near us.
Along with another few of our favorites… Nestlé Coffee-mate® Natural Bliss® Sweet Cream, NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® House Blend and NESCAFÉ® Clasico™ Dark Roast.
For my Coffee Mom Lovers, here is why I love NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® House Blend. This amazing coffee has responsibly sourced beans and NESCAFÉ® Clasico™ Dark Roast is 100% pure coffee.
