Makes: 15 Mini Pancakes

Description: A friend of mine gave me this recipe for what I like to call "baby pancakes". People with Down syndrome are at a higher risk for digestive issues including reflux and intolerance to gluten & lactose. They are also at a higher risk for obesity. For this reason, I try to be very conscious of what I put into my daughter Kara's body. Down syndrome also means a higher risk for low muscle tone (also called hypotonia). Low muscle doesn't just affect the trunk, arms and legs. It affects every little muscle in the body. Think eyes, fingers, tongue, intestines. Everything. It can make many things difficult including eating. Imagine trying to chew and swallow something when you can't really feel or taste it. Your senses are dulled. In order to help "wake up" the sensory system, try adding spices. This recipe only requires two ingredients, but I encourage you to check out the other options whether your child has hypotonia or not. The combinations may surprise you!

1  Very Ripe Banana
3  Eggs
1/2 tsp  Cinnamon {optional}
1/4 c  Oats {optional}
1/4 tsp  Coconut Oil {optional}
1/2 tsp  Ground Allspice {optional}
1/2 tsp  Cumin {optional}

Instructions: Put the banana and eggs (and any other additional ingredients you want to try) in the blender.

Blend until smooth. Makes about 1 cup of batter which will be very runny. Coat skillet with non-stick cooking spray (I use coconut oil) and turn on medium heat. Pour batter into skillet making the pancakes about 3-inches in diameter. Pancakes will be thin and will heat up quickly. Brown on both sides. Remove from heat.

Let cool before serving.

Top with raw honey, peanut butter, blueberries or serve them plain!

To thaw & heat - microwave 15-seconds per pancake.
