Fun Rabbit Pancakes

Rabbit Pancakes

I saw this recipe on Facebook (see, spending hours on Facebook is a worthwhile enterprise!!) and was sceptical but dying to try. You take 2 eggs and one banana. Mash the banana really well and mix in with the two eggs and then pour batter into a frying pan and fry like a regular pancake. It comes out texturally like a pancake, looks like a pancake, tastes like a pancake and takes a minute to make. It is also so simple kids of all ages can make and is so sweet that no toppings are necessary. In fact for me it is way too sweet! What a find, loads of great protein, potassium and nothing unhealthy in sight and so quick and cheap.

As we’re entering the countdown to Easter it’s time to amp up the bunnies, chicks and eggs though so …..

Rabbit Pancakes

Here is my fun food Easter breakfast plate.

Recipe

– Pancakes (I used banana pancakes)

– I used raisins and yoghurt for detail

– I used pepitas (pumpkin seeds) and desiccated coconut for the ground and clouds

Method

1. Make a pancake.

Rabbit Pancakes - 1 pancake (1 of 1)

2. I used a cookie cutter to make two rabbits. One from each side of the pancake to give them a contrasting “look”.

Rabbit Pancakes - 2 rabbits (1 of 1)

3. I cut raisins for eyes.

Rabbit Pancakes - 3 eyes (1 of 1)

4. And what self-respecting rabbit would be seen without a fluffy, yoghurt tail?

Rabbit Pancakes - 4 tails (1 of 1)

5. Then I added a raisin mouth and a yoghurt nose.

Rabbit Pancakes - 5 faces (1 of 1)

6. A few pepitas for the ground and some coconut clouds and you can hop to it.

Fun Spring Brekkie Tree

Spring Brekkie Tree

We all loved the Autumn/Fall brekkie tree so I decided it would be really good fun to create a series, one for every season.

Outside our house in Aus was a beautiful cherry blossom tree and as soon as the flowers came out it signalled the end of winter for me. This fun food design is modelled on the fabulous white and pinkish/red of the tree before the green leaves grow through. It is so simple to make and a great one to get the mini-chefs involved in.

Rather than eat this as a cereal we added yoghurt and the boys had it as a smoothie.

Healthy breakfast food for kids

Recipe

– Banana

– Oats (I used wholegrain)

– Raspberries (as it’s winter here they were frozen ones)

– Almonds, sunflower seeds, pepitas for the ground (anything breakfasty is good!)

Method

1. Cut the banana down the centre and then slice off the rounded edge to make the trunk.

I cut a divide into the end of the trunk and then fashioned branches from the rest of the banana.

2. Add oats as “blossoms”.

Spring Brekkie Tree - 2 + oats

3. Put pieces of raspberry around to finish the bright flowers.

4. I added oats, nuts and seeds around the base to create the soil.
