How to make healthy banana pancakes?

They are naturally sweet and kids do not like extra ripe bananas.
Thus, they go waste.

We are always thinking of making food healthy.This was suggested by my friend Anuja who makes it regularly for her son Atharv who loves having pancakes.Many kids also have the Peppa pig fixation and want to have what the cartoon character wants to eat.Hence moms have to make the required dish too.
Given a choice,mums always want their kids to eat healthy.Thus,this recipe helps both.Kids are happy and their mum too.
No maida but wholemeal so good for gut as it has more fiber.
No added preservatives from commercial mixes.No eggs too.
Cheaper with minimal ingredients already available in your kitchen.
Sweetness of pancake is from natural ingredients like honey and bananas.
How to make banana pancake ? Serving suggestions:
Serve the hot pancakes with seasonal fruits.Berries or mango can be added as per season.If you are allergic to honey,you may replace it with agave or maple syrup.Serve these hot with honey/agave nectar,cream,cinnamon as per your taste.I actually, feel pancake is the malpua which went abroad.There are striking similarities between the two 🙂
