Our beloved babysitter, Brady, has been making a great lunch for the boys, and I wanted to share it: Pancakes made from eggs + bananas (and blueberries, if you’d like). They’re sweet and delicious; you don’t even need syrup.

Our beloved babysitter, Brady, has been making a great lunch for the boys, and I wanted to share it: Pancakes made from eggs + bananas (and blueberries, if you’d like). They’re sweet and delicious; you don’t even need syrup.

Here’s how Brady does it: “To make three pancakes, mash half a banana with a fork in a bowl—it’s fine if there are chunks—and then mix in one egg and blueberries (chopped in half). Pour pancake-size amounts into a greased frying pan over medium-low. I keep lifting the edges with a spatula to see if they’re browning, and once they are, I flip them over to brown the other side. That’s it!”

You can always skip the blueberries, or add other ingredients: Cinnamon, peanut butter, chopped strawberries, chocolate chips, you name it. The boys go c-r-a-z-y for them. Have you ever made them? Thank you so much, Brady!

(We added blueberries to these, but you can make them with just egg and banana, if you’d like)
