In keeping with our banana theme this weekend, we had these amazing pancakes for breakfast. The goal of the book where we got this recipe is to get the kids involved in the cooking process so they have a better understanding of where real food comes from. They are then more likely to want to eat the foods they had a hand in preparing. Hope you enjoy these. We had some hazelnut butter to put as a topping and macadamia butter was really good as well with these. The boys added a touch of maple syrup and they were in heaven…great treat for breakfast.
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1/3 cup coconut flour
- 6 eggs
- 1/4 cup coconut milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg (Jason’s addition…yummy)
1) In a medium-sized mixing bowl smash the bananas until smooth. *Kid Job: Mash those bananas! 2) Add the remaining ingredients and whisk together until well blended. *Kid Job: Help to pour in the coconut milk, sprinkle in the cinnamon, measure the vanilla, crack the eggs (with an adult helper), and whisk! 3) Grease a large skillet or griddle with coconut oil and heat over medium heat. Scoop about 1/4 cup of the mix per pancake onto the hot griddle or skillet and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side.
We just put all the wet ingredients in the food processor, mixed them and then added the dry and mixed it again. Much easier than smashing the bananas but that’s a good job for the kids as well.
