In case you are wondering, yes I am listening to Jack Johnson right now… Is there any other way to write a post about banana pancakes? I think not!
After seeing several recipes for banana pancakes on Pinterest, I decided to whip up some of my own for the little guy. I used a buckwheat pancake mix and followed the directions on the back of the bag. I made one modification to help use up the baby food purees that the little man now refuses to eat, though. Instead of just water I added the pureed sweet potatoes that he now hates. They turned out great!
I tried two variations as well. In the first I put a little bit of batter in the pan, added a banana slice and then put a bit more batter over the banana. In the second, I just dipped the banana slice into the batter and put it in the pan. The second method made much smaller pancakes and it made them harder to flip. In the future I will definitely stick with option 1!
What was the verdict? The little guy ate the majority of one of the larger pancakes this morning so I’d call it a success! I also liked that these were a little more healthy than a waffle or traditional pancake.
