Kid Chef Banana Pancakes

IMG_0845

Kids can make banana pancakes for a special breakfast treat. Bananas are rich in potassium, which is necessary for muscle, bone, and skin growth and are high in Vitamins B6, A, and C and calcium, magnesium, manganese, phosphorous, and iron. They are nearly fat free and are a good source of fiber. Kids love bananas to snack on after exercise as they are quickly digested and go to work replacing necessary nutrients burned off in play. Kids can use organic ingredients and mix 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour, 1 tsp baking powder, ½ tsp cinnamon, and a pinch of sea salt in a medium bowl. In a small bowl mash two ripe bananas with a fork and stir in two tablespoons of maple syrup. Add one cup of milk and the banana mixture to the flour bowl and beat with a wooden spoon until smooth. Let the batter rest for 30 minutes. Heat a pad of butter in a frying pan and pour three spoonfuls of batter to make three small pancakes. Cook until bubbles pop on the surface and flip the pancakes to cook another two minutes. Keep the cooked pancakes warm in a low oven while cooking the rest of the batter. Serve with berries and whipped cream.
