Mitch Hedberg was a very hilarious comedian. He took some of the simplest jokes and made them amazing through his laid back delivery. One joke of Mitch Hedberg that comes to mind is when he was talking about how you have to "start a show strong and end the show strong. You can't be like pancakes. They are all exciting at first, but by the end your f*cking sick of them." Well Mitch...We can assure you that you won't be sick of these pancakes when you are done with them. They are not only delicious and easy to whip together, but they are packed with whole grains so you don't feel a huge carb crash after eating them.
