Mini Pancake Skewers – 600th Post



These are super cute and simple to make. This recipe is a riff on our favorite whole wheat pancake recipe…

The concept of pancake skewers is so easy – just take your favorite pancake recipe and make them miniature-sized so they can be stacked together and served on a platter. I added the banana slice and a blueberry for a little extra flair, but depending on your flavor of pancake, you could coordinate any fruit you want.

You can also try making bigger pancakes and top them with the fresh fruit

Health Benefits:

Fruits are packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and dietary fiber. The health benefits of these super foods can affect your child’s health now and into adulthood. Several important nutrients like vitamin C, potassium, fiber and folate are consumed. Fruits and vegetables are good sources of these nutrients, they can also help fill the nutrient gaps in your child’s diet. Each fruit and vegetable has its own nutritional profile, so include a wide variety to make sure your child gets the full array of nutrients.

Stove top Cookies/Clusters – Quick snack



It is pretty easy to make biscuits on the stove-top. SUPER easy! And kids absolutely loved them. So much so that at lunch time when I made them, they ate up the entire batch.

They are very soft while making on Tawa/stove top so flip them carefully. Even if they break don’t worry they can still be enjoyed as clusters for a light snack or even for breakfast with milk.
