Hi there! I am Kawn from Kids food universe and it’s so exciting to be sharing this hearty family recipe of ours that will give you a reason to get out of bed! Who knew that pancakes all the sudden could become a superfood?
These banana pancakes in a snap are naturally sweetened by the ripe bananas and are filled with antioxidants, fiber and protein that the chia seeds provides so you can serve this treat completely guilt free. The chia seeds also adds a crunchy texture to the pancakes which makes them even better. You can also top the pancakes with your favorite berries and fruit but it is also good just as it is. Another great thing about this recipe is that you can freeze it and reheat it for another family breakfast whenever you or yours crave it. It’s also easy to make. Simply whisk together the ingredients until the mixture turns into a thick liquid, the typical pancake consistency.
It’s a shame these days how the stigma of fast food erodes our belief that some dishes could not possibly be healthy. However, I have a contender! You won’t find a more delicious and nutritious meal than these Chia Banana Pancakes. You won’t find this superfood dish on the menu at any drive through takeaway. But your house might suddenly become the most popular place after school with these tasty treats.
My little boy is still a few years away from his school years. But I want him to know healthy food and taste the difference. When he’s older, I hope he remembers how good his dear mum’s food tasted and how eating healthy is a way of life. I love to pack flavors into all my dishes and draw on my Lebanese heritage mixed with what I now have around me in Denmark where I now live. I hope you enjoy my first featured recipe on Super Healthy Kids and it’s exciting to have the opportunity to be seen on such a terrific page.
