How to make Whole wheat banana Pancakes for kids lunch box / picnic?
Cooking time : 10 mins, Makes 4 mini pancakes or 2 large pancakes
Ingredients :

Whole wheat flour : 1/2 cup
Ripe banana : 1
Egg : 1
Chia seeds : 1/2 tsp
Flax seed meal : 1/2 tsp
Honey : 2 tsp
Melted butter / Olive oil : 1 tsp
Milk : 1 tbsp 
Salt: a pinch
Baking powder : 1/2 tsp
Cinnamon powder / cardamom powder / Vanilla extract : 1/2 tsp

Directions :

1. In a bowl, combine the wet ingredients - Egg, milk, honey and melted butter using a whisk/ fork. Using a mixer, make a paste of banana and add to the wet ingredient mixture. 

2. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the same bowl - whole wheat flour, chia seeds, flax seed meal, salt and baking powder and mix well. (If you see lumps on the baking powder, just press it between your thumb and pointing finger to remove the lumps and add to the mixture / you can sieve them too.)

3. Heat a griddle / tawa and apply 1/2 tsp butter on it. Now pour the batter on to the hot griddle and cook for 2 minutes on each side , until golden brown in color. I make four mini pancakes with this recipe. I will send two pancakes to school and refrigerate the rest for an evening snack.
