A friend of mine came over to spend a few days with us along with her eight-year-old daughter. The first morning they were with us, I asked her daughter if she would have Eggless Banana and Chocolate Chip Pancake for breakfast, to which my friend said, “Don’t bother making them; she hates bananas.” The moment my friend said that her daughter chimed in, “I would love some, Aunty.” And, sure enough, when I made the pancakes, she scarfed them down in a jiffy! As we watched the little one munch through her second serving of pancakes, my friend told me that from then on she would send her daughter to my place and I could feed her the required dose of bananas!
Makes: 4 pancakes of approximately 5 inches in diameter
Note: Do not cook pancakes on the very high heat. High heat will brown the pancake but not allow it to cook from within.
These pancakes can be served topped with maple syrup or honey. Another delicious topping can be made by slicing a ripe but firm banana and caramelizing the slices in a teaspoon of butter melted in a pan. When one side of banana slices are caramelized, flip them to caramelize the other side. Do not flip the slices too much as they could turn to mush. Serve pancakes heaped on each other and topped with these heavenly caramelized banana slices and a scattering of chocolate chips.
So, what does this scrumptious banana-chocolate breakfast have to offer in terms of nutrition to children?
