Getting kids to eat healthy isn’t always easy; but it’s definitely worth your time. These little owls were a hit & all it took were a few simple ingredients. Honey, peanut butter, bananas, strawberries, & blueberries all spread onto some homemade Pancakes. Your kids will love every bite.
YIELD: Makes 10 pancakes
1/2 Cup Peanut Butter
1/3 Cup Honey
2 Medium-Sized Bananas, Sliced
1 Tbsp. Honey
1 Cup Oats (quick-cooking or old fashioned)
1 1/2 Cups Low-Fat Buttermilk
1/2 Cup All-Purpose Flour
2 Tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 Tsp. Baking Soda
1/4 Tsp. Salt
1 Egg, Lightly Beaten
2 Tbsp. Vegetable Oil
In small bowl, combine peanut butter* and 1/3 cup honey; mix well. Set aside**.
In medium bowl, combine oats, buttermilk and remaining honey; mix well. Let stand 10 minutes.
In large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Add egg and oil to oats mixture; blend well. Add to dry ingredients all at once; stir with fork just until dry ingredients are moistened. (Do not overmix.)
Heat griddle over medium-high heat. Lightly grease griddle.
For each pancake, drop scant 1/4 cup batter onto hot griddle; spread into 4-inch circle. Turn pancakes when edges are covered with bubbles and begin to look cooked. (Note: These thicker pancakes take longer to cook than traditional pancakes.)***
To serve, place one pancake on plate; spread with peanut butter/honey mixture and decorate as pictured for a cute and kid friendly meal!
