It was pancakes day yesterday and both yesterday and today we celebrated with pancakes for breakfast and snack. So I thought I’ll share my healthy toddler friendly pancake recipe. Its actually adapted from the basic recipe provided by ediblesubstance – 1 cup self raising flour, 1 cup milk, 1 egg, pinch of salt. Easy eh?
Here’s my healthier version for Sophia:
1 cup wholewheat flour
1 tablespoon rolled oats (I used ground rolled oats which I keep around to mix up for Sophia’s usual breakfast but if you’re just using the whole rolled oats, just soak it in the milk (next ingredients) for a bit)
1 cup liquids (mixture of mashed up fruit of your choice and milk)
1 teaspoon ground flaxseed
1 teaspoon baking powder
Whisk everything together and fry on a lightly buttered pan. Drop some berries in before the pancakes cook through.
Speaking of recipes, here’s a recipe for Sophia’s typical lunch these days:
1) 2 tablespoons quinoa seed
2) 2 tablespoons amaranth
3) 2 tablespoons millet
4) 1 tablespoon minced beef
5) 3 tablespoons fish cut into small pieces
6) 2 tablespoons vegetable of choice – carrot, spinach or shanghai green being the most common ones. Yesterday she also had some bittergoard added.
Boil grains till soft like a porridge then add remaining ingredients and turn off flame after 30 seconds.
