One of the biggest challenges in trying to feed a family is finding recipes that everyone will love. When you've got a baby, a toddler, and adults in the house it can be easy to become a short order cook. Don't get stuck making a different meal for each person! These Banana Bites are hands-down one of our family's favorite recipes. They're healthy, inexpensive and easy to make (which equals a happy mommy and daddy). They're also sweet and delicious (which equals happy baby girl and big brother). The recipe makes quite a few banana bites so you can eat a bunch and keep the rest on hand in the fridge for a few days -- that is, if you can keep them around that long. Not only are my 1 and 3 year olds obsessed with them, but my hubby and I devour them just as fast! And my friend said Banana Bites are as equally good for dessert as they are for breakfast, which I totally agree with! Wether you're dipping them in maple syrup, dusting them with powdered sugar, or eating them piping hot off the griddle, this is a recipe that will quickly become a favorite. Get ready to keep this one on hand for years to come!
Banana Bites (Makes 2-3 Servings)
- 2 Bananas
- 1 cup pancake batter
1. Cut the bananas into 1/4 inch slices (I like to make slices on a diagonal bias so they’re a little bit longer than circles).
2. One at a time, dip the banana slices into the batter, coating all over, shaking off the excess batter into the bowl and place on a buttered griddle or skillet over medium heat.
3. Cook for 1 minute on each side or until golden.
4. Serve with desired accompaniments.
*Do not serve with honey for children under 12 months for allergy reasons.
