Mommy’s Medley Banana-Peach Pancakes

Greta has been a carb fiend lately and rather than loading her up on processed carbs, I like to bake for her whenever possible.  These are the pancakes I have been working on perfecting over the past six months.  I wanted whole grains, no added sugar, hidden veggies and/or fruit, and minimal ingredients.

These pancakes are moist, flavorful, and different flavors of yogurt and fruit or veggies are easily substituted.  I have done applesauce, pumpkin, sweet potato, strawberry, and blueberry versions of these.  Greta devours them every time.  I usually take the extras and freeze them in bags for her to take to daycare – it makes mornings a breeze.


Mommy’s Medley Banana-Peach Pancakes

Ingredients
1-1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 egg
1/4 cup plain yogurt
3/4 cup water
1 cup mashed banana & diced peaches

1. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl.

2. Mash 1 medium ripe banana and dice 1 small ripe peach (about 1 cup of fruit).

3.  Beat egg, mix with yogurt, water and mashed fruit.  Combine with dry ingredients in a few strokes.  Batter will be thick and lumpy.

4.  Pour 1/4 cup batter onto preheated, oiled pan.  Cook 2 minutes per side.  Patience and well-heated pan are essential here.  I used to always mess up the first three pancakes, and flip them early due to impatience.

5. Serve warm with desired toppings.  Suggested topping: no sugar added pear butter.

Greta approved pancakes.
