For the most part, my children will eat everything, or at least try everything I offer them. I do however have a problem with getting them to eat a banana. I think it may have something to do with how many bananas they had as a baby. It was such a convenient food that I ended up overutilising it . I came across this recipe the other day on a coeliac post and thought that would be a great way of getting bananas back into their diet.
We tried this recipe out after school and they both devoured it. We added some berries and yogurt. I didn’t dare tell them it was a banana! We will definitely be making this a regular dish.
The pancakes are also perfect for a weaning baby as finger food or served cold as a lunch box snack for a reluctant fruit eater.
