Let’s Make Some Pumpkin Pancakes!
As a busy mom I am always looking for quick and healthy meals that my little guy will love. These pumpkin pancakes are nutritious, easy to make and most importantly my eight month old can’t get enough of them! He has loved pumpkin since he first tried it when he was six months old so I was eager to try out new ideas on how I could use it in his meals. Since he loved Banana Pancakes (Recipe Blog Coming Soon), I thought I would try out a similar recipe with Pumpkin. These pancakes should take you less than 15 minutes all together and the recipe makes plenty to enjoy now and save the rest in the fridge for later.
Why Pumpkin? I am quick to notice when my little guy enjoys a new food but I was especially pleased to see he loved Pumpkin because it is highly nutritious and rich in Vitamin A which is great for boosting the immune system. It is also high in Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Iron and Folate all of which strengthen the immune system as well. Pumpkin contains a good amount of potassium and fiber which is linked to promoting heart health. This is a nutrient dense, low calorie food and perfect for everyone in the family!
