This sweet and simple two-ingredient pancake recipe is perfect for your toddler’s breakfast, and will save you time in the morning, as it couldn’t be easier to make. Inspired by the Paleo diet trend, this grain- and dairy-free breakfast option is also ideal for anyone with allergies.
The basic recipe is easy to remember: 1 banana + 2 eggs = 4 pancakes, and the how-to doesn’t require a set of formal instructions. Simply mash the banana in a bowl with a fork, add the eggs and stir to combine. Pour pancake-size dollops of batter into a greased frying pan set over medium low heat and cooking until one side is browned. Flip over and brown the other side. Easy peasy, right?
You can certainly add a pinch of salt and/or cinnamon to the batter,p and I’ve even heard of people adding a bit of plain yogurt or almond/peanut butter for a little extra protein boost. They can be topped with traditional pancake syrup or even fresh berries, chocolate chips, or coconut. Feel free to play with the recipe to make it your own.
Because these are made with nothing but wholesome ingredients, they’re also ideal for babies who are finding their way to table food. I’ve even heard of some adults loving them because they fall into the category of “clean eating”.
Have you ever made these before? Do you have any tips to share? What flavour additions would you be inclined to include?
My teen boys still have a lot of sleepovers, and I often find myself feeding five or six young men on a Saturday or Sunday morning. There’s the usual requests for pancakes and/or waffles and bacon, something I usually don’t enjoy cooking for a crowd. That is until I discovered that it’s possible to make perfect bacon—and plenty of it—in the oven instead of on the stovetop. I’ve been a convert to this technique ever since.
This hands-free, mess-free, hassle-free method for making your favourite breakfast meat allows you to cook large volumes of bacon at one time—a standard pound of bacon fits on a large baking sheet—and each piece turns out perfectly cooked and crisp. The strips remain flat and don’t curl up like when cooked in a frying pan, and it guarantees that everyone at the table gets their hot bacon served at the same time. You don’t even have to trouble yourself with flipping it. In fact, the recipe is completely foolproof and very easy to manage early in the morning.
Do you cook your bacon in the oven? How about the microwave? Do you have any tips to add?
Perfect Oven-Baked Bacon
Prep and Cook:
Good to Know: If you have a metal cooling rack, you can place that over the foil-lined pan then lay the strips of bacon across the rack. This will allow the grease to drip onto the pan and will yield extra crispy strips.
