These Banana & Blueberry Pancake “Sandwiches” are what my little girl is taking to school today.
These are made with whole-wheat and have the goodness of bananas and blueberries. Instead of putting the fruit on top of the pancake where it will definitely roll down on and touch the other contents of her lunch box (trust me kids hate it and it looks good only in pics :)) I like to add them to the batter. I make them mini so we can sandwich them with a cheese and honey filling; easy to pick and no syrup drips and she loves the honey and cheese combination that it keeps it both moist and yummy. A couple of raw veggies on the side and a dip complete her lunch box.
Does your little one like taking pancakes to school? What are some of her/his favourite combinations? I’d love to hear. Mixed berries, dates and banana and strawberry and ricotta are some that Sara loves.
I used Puck’s cheese triangles to make these “sandwiches” and you can get the complete recipe on the Puck Arabia website.
Also, what would your reaction be if I tell you that by simply making and sharing a lunch box recipe using one of Puck’s products you could win your child’s school fees for the year! Unbelievable right?
So don’t forget to head on to @PuckArabia and share your packed lunch ideas with the hashtag #PackedWithLove, for a chance to win $10,000 towards your kid’s school fees!
