2015-02-19-yogurtgriddlecake801.jpgMinnesota Wild Rice Griddle Cakes make a terrific and healthy breakfast option. You can adorn them like you would your favorite pancake. My traditional griddle cake recipe adapts perfectly with the addition of blueberries, strawberries, bananas or even chocolate chips. One of my favorite ways to eat wild rice griddle cakes for breakfast is to top them with a nice healthy dollop of Greek yogurt, mixed berries, seasonal fruits and drizzle all with a little honey. Add more flavor by sprinkling some fresh mint chiffonade on top. You'll be happy and feeling good all day long!
