Man I'm a slacker. I was going to put in effort and share a recipe out of my books or recipe box but sorry not going to happen this week. But I have been on a "I need healthier foods and snacks for my girls" kick so I will share a recipe that I really like and they seem to love.
Pumpkin Pancakes (via WholesomeToddlerFood.com ...I love love love them for kid recipes...check them out)
1 C whole wheat flour
3/4 C white flour
1 T baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 C pureed pumpkin or canned pumpkin
1 tsp vanilla
2 C milk
3 T canola oil
Stir/sift together all of the dry ingredients in a medium bowl. In a separate larger bowl beat eggs, pumpkin and vanilla together. Add milk and oil and beat again until smooth. Add the flour mixture. Cook as usual.
Notes: I left out the salt (as did the author) and the allspice (I didn't have any). I would actually try adding the salt next time but they taste fine without it.
I must be a pancake cooking ninny. The first couple didn't flip well for me. Make sure you cook these until the edges are a little "dry" and top is not as shiny (these are hard to burn). This will help to have a non-doughy and easy-flipping pancake.
I also doubled the recipe for the purpose of freezing. Worked great. I usually reheat in the microwave for about 30-40 seconds and then pop them in the toaster to keep the soggy away.
