Sunflower Seed Pancakes

Sunflower seeds pancake: A healthy and tasty pancakes for a perfect nutrition packed breakfast. My second breakfast post using sunflower seeds for the 5th day of Cooking Carnival. When I chose to cook with Super seeds I was super excited and overwhelmed to know all the miraculous health benefits of these seeds. I have never made a pledge to myself that whether cooking for Blog or not I am going to include these super seeds in our diet on daily basis.

For the pancakes, I used whole wheat flour to make them more health. I served them to my daughters with honey and banana and they totally loved these soft and delicious pancakes.
