It's been almost 3 months since I've started weaning my little one, and as the weeks go by she's becoming more and more picky with her food. She's become sick of sloppy porridge and breakfast yoghurts (I don't blame her), so I've been trying to find some healthy alternatives for her to eat and explore. One of my sources of inspiration has been The Green Kitchen Stories, run by a couple who cook with their children in minds, and, it's all healthy and nutritious goodness. I saw this really easy recipe that involved few ingredients and little of my time.
1 tsp of ground cinnamon
1 tsp coconut oil (for frying)
2 tbs of flour* / use 1 cup of shredded coconut for a taster and healthier option
2 tbs of ground almond (I added this in for extra flavour)
1/2 cup of blueberries
This is so simple:
1. Mash the bananas with a fork.
2. Whip the eggs in a separate bowl, then add them to the mashed bananas.
3. Then add the cinnamon, blueberries, ground almond and flour to the mixture. You should have a loose mixture.
4. Heat the coconut oil in a frying pan at medium heat.
5. Pour small portions of the mixture in your pan and fry for around 3 minutes on each side (the time to flip is dependent on the size, but they should be nice and brown on each side)
My baby loved it. For me and my husband I added a dash of honey and ground cinnamon as a finishing touch.
* Unfortunately I didn't have the shredded coconut so instead used 2 heaped tablespoons of flour to thicken the mixture up, which I really would have rather avoided; as white flour is a major culprit in processed foods. So if you have shredded coconut or any other healthy alternative go for that instead!
