Fancy Fruity Pancakes

It’s unlikely that anyone will believe me when I told them that these pancakes were imagined on a morning when I was simply trying to be healthy (and frugal) and sneak a few over ripe apricots into my girls’ breakfast! =) but it’s true… Sometimes a breakfast that makes squealing happy toddlers is so much better than simply healthy. And hey! It’s still frugal if you have over ripe fruit like me!

Mix and set aside:
1 cup flour
1 Tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

In mixer:
1 egg
1 cup of milk
2 Tablespoons oil
1 ripe banana
2 ripe apricots
(Or any fruit you could imagine really! Just try to equal about 1 cup mashed fruit. I used my immersion blender in my mixer blend in the apricot skins even!)

(Optional)
Chocolate chips for sprinkling
Cinnamon sugar butter for topping

Add flour into mixer and stir into fruit.
Should be lumpy!
Heat a griddle to medium heat. Coat with butter, and scoop onĀ  your preferred size pancakes. My girls like little ones that they just eat with their hands… And top with chocolate chips!

Flip when bubbles appear in the center of the pancake. Finish cooking. Serve hot and top with cinnamon sugar butter!
Hailee has eaten 4 and still going strong. Claire (teething) stopped during her 2nd one but was especially thrilled to have chocolate chips in her pancakes. Enjoy! :)
