Banana Pancakes with Apple Topping
Fluffy banana pancakes topped with a cinnamon apple topping… perfect for Saturday morning breakfast or for dinner!
We have breakfast for dinner every now and then, the kids think its super fun and it makes for a cheap meal. I like to try and be somewhat healthy so I usually opt for pancakes. I love pancakes, they are so versatile. One of my kids likes theirs plain, the rest like anything and everything in them, so have fun and experiment. Chocolate chips, applesauce and cinnamon, the classic blueberry and in this instance bananas!
If you have a pancake batter recipe that you love, stick with that. If you adore store bought pancake mix that’s fine too, in both cases just mash up two bananas and add it to the mix. If you’re looking for a good pancake recipe, you’ll want to give this one a try.
I don’t like to feel stressed in the kitchen, if I can do any kind of prep work to keep things running smoothly, I will. I like to cook the pancakes first and then keep them warm in the oven, at 170 degrees, and then I can move on to the apple topping.
My mother always used to say that carrot cake was a health food because it has carrots in it, so here you go, a perfectly healthy dinner containing bananas and apples. Say whatever you need to so you don’t feel guilty having seconds. ;)
