With Freddie now at preschool breakfasts have become essential!
I definitely notice a difference in how he behaves when I pick him up at the end of the day. On the days when he’s had a decent breakfast, like these banana pancakes, he is so much happier than if he has stirred round his Weetbix and not actually eaten much even if he doesn’t eat his lunch.
Baked beans, boiled eggs and soliders and pancakes have become regular breakfast fare along with a variety of other choices that I posted about when I first started blogging with a series called Breakfast Make-over.
This banana pancake recipe is packed with protein and energy that will definitely have your kids skipping off to preschool! They make great finger food for babies too so the whole family can tuck in to a hearty breakfast together. I’ve also popped the leftovers into Freddie’s lunchbox for a yummy refined sugar free snack for morning tea.

- 2 tbsp ricotta
- 2 tbsp coconut flour (you can use regular flour instead but you will need a bit more as coconut flour seems to soak up liquid!)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ¼ cup milk
- 1 egg
- 1 mashed banana
- Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl.
- Mix the wet ingredients together and whisk into the flour mixture.
- Melt butter in frying pan and spoon a tablespoon of mixture into the frying pan and cook for about 2 minutes until bubbles form on the surface and base is golden, flip and repeat.
- Serve with yoghurt and sliced fruit and a drizzle of maple syrup if you want to the banana makes them pretty sweet already so you don’t really need to.
