Healthy Kid Breakfast Recipe: Banana Collagen Pancakes

bananapancakesOnce Noah started finger foods, I had to get more creative with incorporating some nutritious, building block foods into his diet. For butter and collagen, it was easy to just mix those into a puree, which he can’t feed to himself. So, I started thinking about how I could incorporate those ingredients into a cooked or formed product.

One morning, I decided to make some pancakes for him as a fun Sunday breakfast and created this homemade recipe that I am very happy with. I whipped the pancakes well in the blender, and that helped the collagen make a sturdy pancake. I slathered each one with grass-fed butter to make sure he was getting the essential fat in his diet. He loved them and ate 6 “dollar size” pancakes!

This is also a great, healthy snack idea to send for your kids since it is a great mix of healthy carbohydrates, protein and fat. For my son, I cut them up into small triangles, and he eats them as his morning snack instead of the graham crackers they offer at the school. This is a great fuel for kids who participate in sports as well and who need a pre- or post- workout fuel.

Banana Collagen Pancakes

Ingredients:

  • 2 pasture-raised eggs
  • 1 bananacookingpancakes
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 TBSP collagen peptides
  • grass-fed butter (for greasing skillet and topping)

Note: Try and get natural, organic ingredients if you can.

Directions:

  1. Heat your skillet to medium or 350◦F.
  2. Peel the banana and place it in the blender.
  3. Crack the eggs, and add them to the blender.
  4. Blend the banana and eggs together. Then, add in the cinnamon and collagen.
  5. Blend for 1-2 minutes so the collagen has time to whip air into the pancakes. (This makes them fluffy like pancakes that have leaveners and grains. )
  6. Coat your skillet in butter, ghee or coconut oil.
  7. Pour your batter slowly into little circles onto the skillet. I make these 3-4 inch pancakes because that makes them easier to flip.
  8. As you cook the rest of the batch, you can keep the pancakes warm in an oven set on the lowest setting.
  9. Serve them topped with grass-fed butter, honey, maple syrup or nut butter.
