I have seen so many recipes for banana pancakes online – all with varying ingredient but all saying how good they are. With that we thought we would give them a go. We used the recipe from My Fussy Eater it has a great little video explanation so you can’t go wrong.
The recipe is super easy to make and the end result was brilliant!
1 medium banana
1 medium egg
A little butter or oil for frying
(Yep that’s really it!)
1. Peel and mash your banana.
2. Crack the egg into a bowl and whisk.
3. Add the banana into the whisked egg and mix well.
4. Oil a frying pan with a small amount of butter or oil (I used butter).
5. Drop tablespoon size amounts of the mixture in the frying pan, I can fit about four in at once. Cook for around two minutes, until brown and then flip over and cook for a further minute on the other side. The mixture will still be quite runny when you flip over but this is how it should be.
6. Serve warm or allow to cool. Will keep in the fridge for a couple of days in an airtight container (if they last that long).
I made ten small pancakes out of the mixture.
The pancakes do have a distinct banana taste which is great because all of us Bebe’s love banana. They have a very similar texture and consistancy to normal pancakes and are easily eaten.
You could make the pancakes for breakfast, a snack or a pudding – they are very versatile. you could prepare them beforehand or just make as and when as they are so fast to make.
These are great for weaning – they are easy for baby to hold, soft with a melt in the mouth texture and have great ingredients which are healthy. Little Bebe loved them, and wanted more then her share – unfortunately for her Mr Bebe and I had already polished the rest off.
They are also great for dieters – the whole recipe was only 4 weightwatchers smartpoints, so you can have a couple to snack in for only a point.
I am going to try mixing them up a little next by adding other ingrediants such as cinnamon, nutmeg or raisins. I also plan to serve them with other items such as berries or a drizzle of honey over the top. (I’ll let you know how it goes!)
