As moms (or dads) we all like to feed our little ones the very best food possible. We all want them to eat a balanced and wholesome diet. It may not always be possible to give them home cooked meals but we got to try our best as parents to provide them healthy meals. The recipe I am going to share today is for a breakfast staple- pancakes! I don’t know about you but I love pancakes.
To switch things around a notch and to really enjoy some breakfast time as a family, this morning I made some applesauce pancakes for A. She was not too sure of the pancakes at first but she did enjoy it after a few bites. I cut the regular sized pancakes using cookie cutter to make them into fun shapes. Like my other recipes this one too is free from sugar and oils/butter (very little if any). Hubby and I enjoyed these pancakes as well.
I know the picture does not do much justice to the taste and the wholesomeness of the pancakes but they were very satisfying and tasty. Enjoy!
1 cup flour –
1/4 teaspoon salt –
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon melted butter –
1/2 cup milk –
1 beaten egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla –
1 1/4 cups applesauce
Sift flour, salt and baking powder into a medium mixing bowl. Combine butter, milk and egg. Stir into dry ingredients. Add vanilla and applesauce; beat well. Spoon batter into a hot, well greased griddle, enough batter to applesauce pancakes about 4 inches in diameter or make regular sized pancakes and cut them into fun shapes like I did.
