No-Mess Banana Nut Pancakes
with Cinnamon-Raisin Syrup

No-Mess Banana Nut Pancakes with Cinnamon-Raisin SyrupStart the day off with a wholesome breakfast of whole grain pancakes with raisins and bananas topped with Cinnamon-Raisin Syrup. The batter for these pancakes is made in a zip-top bag and easily mixed together by kids' own hands, with the advantage of letting children have mess-free fun helping out in the kitchen. (Tip: Double check to be sure the bag is well-sealed!)

Recipe Ingredients:

1 large ripe banana
2 cups whole grain pancake mix
1 cup fat-free milk
1/2 cup California Raisins
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Cinnamon Raisin Syrup:
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup California Raisins
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Cooking Directions:

  1. Place banana in a large resealable bag and squeeze well to mash. Add remaining pancake ingredients; seal and squeeze to mix well.
  2. Snip a small corner off the bag and squeeze batter onto a large hot griddle coated with nonstick cooking spray to make circles or squiggles. Cook over medium heat for about 3 minutes on each side, until lightly browned.
  3. For topping, combine ingredients in a small bowl; microwave on high for about 30 seconds or until warm.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.
