Whole wheat pancakes....


With two young kids at home I am always looking for healthier and nutritious options.. .Pancakes is an all time favourite with most kids. Served with honey and plenty of fruits makes up for the use of plain flour but still I was on the search for a healthier version. I tried several recipes and they were no where close to the original ones…Either they were hard, or flat or tasted insipid. I was at the verge of giving up till I stumbled upon this recipe from Tarla Dalal. When I was pregnant with my boys somebody had gifted me this interesting cook book called ‘The pregnancy cookbook’ by Tarla Dalal which I have never tried till date... So when I was looking through this book I found this recipe which had whole wheat, bananas and walnuts in it. So I immediately tried it out this morning for breakfast. It came out beautiful and tasted good too…
I served it with a dollop of jam and butter and it was all gone in a minute.

Ingredients:
1 cup Whole wheat flour
2 tbsp wheat bran
2 ripe bananas
1/2 cup walnuts finely Chopped
1/2 cup milk
4 tbsp caster sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking powder
1tbsp melted butter 4 tbsp butter to cook
Sliced banana to serve
Honey and jam to serve

Method:

1. Mash one banana and slice the other.
2. Combine all the ingredients except the sliced up banana in a bowl and add 1/2 cup water and whisk it up to a smooth batter.
3. Heat a pan and pour the batter cook the pancakes over medium heat using little butter till golden brown
4.Serve with honey or jam.
