We’ve had enough negative posts lately so how about some positivity: FOOD!
I’m a Pinterest addict — who isn’t these days — and I often pin things and never try them. I’ve tried to make a real effort to do at least one “pin” each month and this month, I picked an easy one: Pancake Bites! The pin I have is a broken link but the original post is here.
The pin I had said to use your favourite mix, pour it in and add some extras. I made my pancake mix from [easy] scratch (recipe to follow), sprayed the pan and made my first batch plain. My plan was to freeze the pancake bits and reheat them individually for the boys all week. I only got FOUR in the freezer because apparently my children have been missing this food their entire life. They love them!!
Our second batch, we added a banana to the mix and some chocolate chips to the tops. I didn’t really think about it ahead of time but the chocolate chips slowly fell to the middle of the pancake bite while they were being cooked, creating a hidden chocolate centre! The kids loved it!
Makes 12 – 12.5g net carbs each
1 1/3 cup Flour 2 tsp Baking Powder 2 Tbsp Sugar
3/4 tsp Salt 1 1/2 cup Milk 1 Egg
2 1/2 Tbsp Oil
- Add all ingredients to food processor and mix (Or use a bowl & wisk if you’re old school)
- Pour evenly into 12 tin muffin pan, sprayed with cooking spray, about 3/4 full
- Bake for 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees
- Let cool and enjoy!
If you want to add a banana (medium size, 18.5g CHO) and chocolate chips (6 each pancake, 20g CHO total) like we did, the total net carb amount for each pancake bite is 15.5g.
Let us know what different types of pancakes bites you tried and how your family liked it!
