Do you want to know how to make the world’s easiest pancake?
It can be done in 1 bowl and takes under 5 minutes. It’s healthy, packed with protein and taste pretty damn good. Also, you may be happy to hear that this magic pancake is toddler ‘tested’ and approved. It is kind of a big deal for me these days ;)
Happy child, happy life!
This simple meal ticks all those boxes. And, you can easily…:
- Whip it up as a speedy healthy breakfast for your kiddo (come on, get more creative than that box of cherrios!)
- Eat it after the gym session for breakfast
- Have it on weekends, as quick but lush pancake breakie or brunch
- Enjoy any day for breakfast, snack, lunch or dinner..Who said you can’t?
The pancake is a decent portion and quite filling for a little tummy. Naively, I thought my toddler would eat maybe half of it only. I usually keep 1/3 of it on a side and waiting to see if she asks for more. She usually does…Haha. But, on the occasion she will graciously share it with me also. The pancake can be cut in pieces, shapes, rolled a bit or just be flat and cut with a fork. All above fun allowed. It is soft, easy to chew for infants and toddlers and taste sweet, without adding any refined sugar or weird ingredients.
It is a simple, but mighty meal. Feel free to add any extras like chia seeds for extra calcium and protein, flaxseed for extra Omegas, or shredded coconut for extra texture and flavour. As for toppings, go wild :) I usually cut up a few berries or a kiwi and add a spoon of yoghurt or almond butter for dipping. Extra bee pollen or seeds give a nice crunch too. No honey needed – bananas give enough sweetness here.
Can’t go wrong really!
If you want to make an adult protein packed portion, use 2 eggs. Or, what I often do, make your child the 2 Ingredient Pancake and treat myself to my Powerhouse Pancake for extra nutrition and kick.
- 1 egg
- ⅓ to ½ banana
- coconut oil, for cooking
- Optional: 1 tsp of chia seeds, 1 tsp of flaxseed, cinnamon
- Heat up pan with some coconut oil.
- Crack egg into a bow and whisk nicely.
- Add the banana into the same bowl and smash it with a fork.
- Mix it well and pour into the pan.
- Leave it on one side until you see the end curl up and get a bit brown (maybe 2-3 minutes). Flip gently and finish up on the other side.
- Ready to serve and enjoy right away!
Any toppings or extras are optional, be creative! (e.g. fruit, yoghurt, seeds, nuts, cacao nibs, bee pollen...)
Any leftover keep well in the fridge for a day or so.
Be creative and let me know if you or your kids like it!
