Cooking with Kids
My daughter declared one morning down the shore eating at one of our favorite breakfast places, the Sunrise Cafe, that she was going to open up her own restaurant across the street called the Moonrise Cafe.
Since then, every time we cook or pretend to cook at her play kitchen, we are recipe testing for the Moonrise Cafe. The two things that will definitely be on the menu for sure are these banana pancakes and eggs. This is an easy banana pancakes recipe, so if your kids are curious about cooking, these pancakes are a great place to start--they can help mash the bananas, mix the batter, and (depending on their age) brave flipping these pancakes with the help of an adult.
Kid-approved healthy breakfast recipe
For this recipe, I used two bananas--one mashed, one cut into small chunks. You can use two fully mashed bananas for an even texture, but my girls like banana chunks. Between WW and having two banana fiend children, I am buying about 15-20 bananas a week. This is an excellent healthy recipe for overripe bananas--as much as we all love banana bread, sometimes it's good to have a healthy recipe using brown bananas up our sleeves.
These pancakes are naturally sweetened with no sugar which makes me feel better when my 6-year-old tries to eat her weight in them--she averages at about 4 pancakes. Luckily, this recipe makes 15 banana pancakes.
Thick and fluffy healthy banana pancakes
These bananas banana pancakes are diner--style pancakes and get their height from the self rising flour, baking powder, eggs, and bananas. Bananas are actually a common vegan egg replacement in baking, and they help give these pancakes more rise. The Greek yogurt reacts to the self rising flour and baking powder to activate the leavening.
Can I freeze pancakes?
While I don't recommend freezing any old pancakes, you can definitely freeze these banana pancakes. In order to freeze these banana pancakes, let them cool to room temperature. Once they are room temperature, place them on a baking sheet and freeze (uncovered) in the freezer until thoroughly frozen. Once they are frozen, transfer to an airtight freezer-safe container like a freezer bag. Allowing them to freeze on a baking sheet first ensures they won't stick together.
To reheat, you can microwave or even heat in the toaster oven. The pancakes will retain their softness and deliciousness. Because of this, these banana pancakes make excellent breakfast meal prep.
