Hi Guys its Tuesday again, I din’t even notice that till this morning and I was like Wow a week is already gone? and where? Actually I din’t do much this week. The whole week I have been thinking of baking cookies for my son, I haven’t done much about it except for keeping the butter out of the fridge to get it at room temperature. Anyways I m sure I will bake them soon and hopefully they will turn out nice. If they do I will post the recipe, as I try and do healthier version cookies for him obviously.
Talking about healthy food for kids I have these healthy Whole wheat Banana pancakes that I often made for breakfast or in fact anytime when he is hungry and I don’t have anything ready. I started these when my son started solids and used to do these a lot until few months back, when we used to go out in the morning, as I prefer to carry home cooked food for him. In fact Its been quite some time since I made them, may be tonight.
This such an easy recipe and you can play around too, try adding some cinnamon to it, or some peanut butter if you please. I normally use a well ripe banana and try to omit the sugar if the batter tastes sweet enough, you may obviously adjust the sugar after tasting the batter (its no fun to taste raw batter , I admit ). I serve it with some cream cheese, syrup, maple syrup and even some chocolate sauce at times.
One really important thing is to cook it on low flame and let it take its time to cook, you will only be able to flip it well, if it has cooked well on one side. So lets get going guys to this quick one.

Its important to cook it on low flame and let it take its time to cook.
It may seem sticky from within when it hot that’s because of the banana.
Using a non stick pan will make this much easier for you.
