Healthy Kids Meals | Banana Pancake Stack
These pancakes are a great way to introduce yourself and children to buckwheat and quinoa flours. These flours are gluten free (making them easier to digest), higher in protein and a great source of B vitamins.
Adding banana into the mix increases potassium and makes the pancakes nice and sweet without having to add refined sugar. All in all you have a super nutritious and delicious breakfast.
- 1/2 cup buckwheat flour
- 1/2 cup quinoa flour
- 1 tsp baking powder,
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 tbsp coconut oil,
- 1 tbsp rice malt syrup, maple syrup or honey,
- 1 lemon, juiced
- Approximately 200ml filtered or spring water or nut milk.
- Add all the dry ingredients to a bowl and mix together until evenly combined.
- Add the melted coconut oil, syrup and lemon juice and stir the mixture together until it is evenly combined.
- Add the water a little at a time until you get the pancake consistency you desire. I find around 200mls works, as I like the pancakes quite thick.
- Heat a pan and add coconut oil. I use 2 tablespoons of mixture for each pancake and a round egg poacher to get the shape.
- Once all the pancakes are cooked stack them in layers with thinly sliced banana or berries in between and a drizzle of syrup or honey on top.
