This morning I am unfortunately home with the little bubs because she had a high fever yesterday at daycare. I took her to the doc’s yesterday afternoon and thankfully there is no ear infection or any other signs of something serious. But I have to keep her out of daycare for 24 to ensure that the fever goes down before I can bring her back.
So, I am home monitoring her and working remote today.
To keep Ry in good spirits, I did make her a breakfast treat this morning!
She actually always gets pancakes (or other breakfast carb item) when she goes to daycare, so I guess it’s not that big of a treat for her, but I know she loves it and I wanted to give it to her even though she wasn’t there.
I made her my own version though, healthy whole wheat pancakes. I used the new trick I learned from baking those Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins and swapped out the oil for unsweetened applesauce. I remembered that I found this awesome chart of healthy baking substitutes on Pinterest so I checked it to see how the substitution would work.
I just swapped the required tablespoon of oil for applesauce and I couldn’t even tell the difference!
What, did you think I wouldn’t indulge in these myself?
Of course, I smothered mine in fresh strawberries and drizzled a little bit of 100% pure maple syrup over top.
Rylee had hers plain, but she thoroughly enjoyed them!
Show me that smile,
There she is! And with whole wheat pancake crumbs on her face!
Now she is napping and I am back to work!
Happy Hump Day!
