Pureed Beans

Protein and fiber are key for the first meal of the day, and beans fit the bill for both. Although they're commonly found in lunches or dinners, their mild flavor makes them a great ingredient to mix into your pancakes. Mash or puree half a cup of cooked beans into a recipe that makes 10 to 12 pancakes — cannellini beans work best since they're light-colored, but black, kidney, or pinto will do fine!
