Wheat & Oat Pancakes with Banana Nice-Cream | Healthy breakfast ideas
As much as I try to make sure my children don’t eat too much chocolate at Easter, they will inevitably end up with probably around 4 Easter eggs each. So, I have been trying to come up with some healthy breakfast ideas to start their day off the right way. A serving of one of these yummy wheat pancakes plus a good serving of fruit before they crack open any of their eggs.
Wheat flour is high in fibre which is a really important part of a healthy diet. Just remember though that a little tummy can fill up quickly which leaves little room for other good foods your toddler needs. These pancakes are a good balance of wheat along with oats and I make them roughly the size of the palm of my toddlers hand, so they are mini sized for him. When he was smaller he would eat one but as he has got bigger he is now gobbling up two of them along with a serving of fruit. A good healthy and very yummy breakfast.
On Sunday’s my kids LOVE pancakes served with banana nice-cream. It basically is just banana with a splash of milk! No added sugar or rubbish what-so-ever! I buy bananas in bulk when they are in offer in Dunnes Stores (this week they are 2 for €3 so really cheap). Slice them up and store in little freezer bags in the freezer! So handy especially when your kids want a treat.
To make it, just add some frozen bananas to the blender with a splash of milk and blend until it starts to turn into a smooth soft serve ice cream. This never lasts in my house so even though you can make it ahead and freeze, it’s so much better eaten fresh.
These pancakes are:
and Scrumdiddlyicious! (o.k I know that’s not a word!)
All of the ingredients can be bought in your local Dunnes Stores.
