Banana Pancakes

Miss 3 nearly 4 can be a bit fussy at times about her menu requirements… aren’t they all at one stage or another? A trick that works (most of the time😉) when introducing something new is to put it alongside an already firm favourite. In this case the fav food is honey – it could have been added to a refined food like toast or traditional pancakes and a sugar crashing, hangry Miss 3+ may have replaced the princess here….

Instead theses pancakes were power packed with good fats, fibre and protein to balance the sugar load – turning these yummy pancakes into a long lasting, sugar stabilising fuel! Mum tells me that lunch wasn’t even mentioned until 1 pm. So if you are finding that the kids are always at the fridge door looking for a treat, really look at what’s on that breakfast plate. Is it a food high in sugar, highly processed or empty of nutrition?

Could we gently tweak that meal with an easy alternative? We are unfortunately one of the most over fed, yet under nourished nations in the world. Let’s not make our kids part of that statistic!

1 banana
3 eggs
4 tablespoons of almond meal – more if you want thicker pancakes

Blitz till smooth. I put these into a squeezy bottle to make the animal shapes.

Why these ingredients? Banana; for beautiful fibre, vitamins and minerals. Eggs; loaded with vitamins, minerals, high-quality protein and good fats. Almond meal; full of healthy fats, fibre, protein, magnesium and vitamins. Fats, protein and fibre plus a little drizzle of that favourite honey (with its natural goodness too)

Eating healthy is not about deprivation it’s about balance!
