The littles are hard to feed sometimes. (Can I get an amen!) I have to get creative from time to time so that they’ll eat. I know, I know, “if they are hungry enough they will eat what you make”. Well, I’m too tired for all that! In any case, this little trick is super easy and in all honesty really fun to do!
I used to have a pancake batter dispenser that cost too much and broke too soon. I needed a way to get fancy with the pancakes without that thing. So, Amazon shopping I went! I bought this gem:
These squeeze bottles work wonderfully! You simply pour your pancake batter into the squeeze bottle and start designing anything that your little heart desires.
Here are some ideas:
Little round dippers, shapes, cars, trains, names, ninja turtles, mickey mouse.etc.
*Tip: In order to get better lines, outline the shape first and then fill it in. Also, if you are going to be doing letters or names, make sure to write them backwards otherwise they end up like this:
Here is the recipe that I used:
- 2 Cup of flour (I use Great River Organic Flour, it’s amazing!)
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon sugar, optional (I use honey)
- 2 eggs
- 1 ½ to 2 cups milk
- 2 tablespoons melted organic butter
- Organic coconut oil for cooking
(This recipe is one of a million recipes, so please use whatever one fits your dietary needs.)
Needless to say, the kids loved their breakfast and ate pretty much all of it! Plus, any pancake that they didn’t eat, is easily frozen for another day.
