My picky kid loves all things carbs but one of his favorite things to eat is pancakes! Forget about adding anything special like blueberries or chocolate chips …NOPE! My child is definitely a minimalist when it comes to food. I have found much to my surprise that I can get away with adding some cinnamon and nut butters. On occasions I can even add in some protein powders! The problem here is finding the right protein powder that doesn’t turn the batter green or taste like you’ve been baking with yard clippings… more on that later. For now… let’s dig in to the picky-kid pancake!
Healthier version of a classic
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 20 mins
Course: Breakfast Servings: 4 people
1 1/2 c Whole Wheat Flour
3 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Salt
1 tbs Organic Raw Honey
1 1/4 c Organic Whole Milk
3 tbs Organic Coconut Oil melted
In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter, mix until smooth.
Heat a non stick griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle.
Pour the batter onto the pan and wait for those famous pancake bubbles to pop up. Then flip!
I have a special spoon I like to use that is the perfect amount of batter for a small silver dollar sized pancake. But if you love the larger flapjack style 1/4 scoop will be perfect!
I do not like to use butter or fat in the pan and here is why… I find that the pancake has more of that “diner pancake look” if you put the batter straight on a heated NON-STICK pan. Whenever you add fat to the pan, the pancake gets a crust around the edges but the inside stays light in color. I just love the look of a perfect pancake.
I also STRONGLY urge you to cover the pancakes as they come out of the pan. This is a secret I learned a long time ago simply by accident and I’m SO glad I did!! Covering your pancakes while you continue to cook off the batch keeps the steam inside and will make your pancakes SUPER fluffy! I always get complimented on how yummy they are. Let me know how the Picky-kid Pancake turned out for you!
