Eggless, Orange Flavored Berry Pancakes and Banana Sandwich

Here are 'not so sweet' whole wheat, orange flavored, berry pancakes that both kids and adults can enjoy.



Ingredients for 6 pancakes:
1 cup wheat flour
About 1.5 cup orange juice (at room temperature)
1/2 cup dried berries, roughly chopped
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp sugar (optional)
Oil / ghee / melted butter to drizzle

The cooking part:
Mix the flour, salt, sugar and baking powder. Gradually add the juice and whisk to form a lump free batter. Then gently combine the berries.
Heat a griddle or a shallow pan. Pour 1/4 cup batter and spread gently into a 4 - 5 inches circle. Drizzle a few drops of oil around the edges. Let it cook on low flame, covered. Cooking on low flame is important. When it appears cooked, flip the pancake and cook for about 30 seconds or a little more when the other side too browns a little bit.
Repeat the same with the remaining batter.

Simple, Whole Wheat Bread - Banana Sandwich:
This is a family favorite and I prefer banana slices with toasted bread as a breakfast when I am feeling lazy. Any nut butter would be a healthy addition if serving kids.



I am sending these over to Priya who is hosting Sharmi's 'Cooking with Kids' event this month, with the theme Whole wheat with fruits.
