Special breakfast items are always a nice way to get the students running to the Breakfast Club in the morning. Try this fun twist on a traditional pancake recipe. When you can incorporate additional fruit servings into breakfast it’s always a bonus. Kids are more willing to try new things if they are served in fun ways. Incorporating kids in the kitchen is also a great way to get them excited about healthy foods. You can try this recipe at home or at your KES Club this week:
Apple Pancake Dippers
- 4 apples, sliced (peeled if desired)
- 1 batch pancake batter
- 1 tsp. Cinnamon
- Cooking spray for pan
- Yogurt of choice, for dipping
- Maple syrup, for dipping (optional)
Slice apple. Using a melon baller or small cookie cutter, scoop out the core of the apple slices. Toss apple slices in pancake batter until coated. In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, heat cooking spray. Add apples and cook until bubbles form on pancake batter, approximately 2 minutes. Flip and cook for 2 more minutes. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Serve yogurt of choice (or syrup) for dipping. Enjoy!
