Yesterday was my first breakfast with the toddler in a week and I wanted to make something special! Staring at some brown bananas and about nothing else, this is what I came up with and…. it WORKED!
They were delicious! The toddler devoured them with just a bit of syrup. Just look at him, how cute? I couldn’t pick so I posted all three pics.
I chose a smear of low sugar strawberry jelly and a handful of blueberries. Not a bad 2 point breakfast, is it? ;~)
- 1 large overripe banana
- 1 egg
- ½ cup (4oz) skim milk
- ½ tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp ground nutmeg
- ¾ cup (90g) whole wheat flour
Mash the banana in a medium bowl. Add the egg and milk. Whisk until frothy.
In a smaller bowl, add the flour, baking soda, baking powder and nutmeg. Sift into the banana mixture. Mix until just blended.
Pour batter in a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Cook about 1-2 minutes a side, small bubbles will form but not as many as traditional pancakes. I just peaked underneath for a light brown color, then flipped.
Just a few more pics, I was a little camera crazy!
09/13/08 Update: I didn’t have milk and replaced the 1/2 cup milk with 1/4 yogurt. The batter was super thick (mostly because I forgot the 1/4 cup water) but they came out delicious in the waffle iron!
