Picky Eaters: Pea Pancakes

Over the past few months, I have been looking at hundreds of new recipes including recipes for toddlers.  One idea I saw repeatedly was ‘Pea Pancakes’.  My initial thought was, ‘I will never make my son eat those, they are green!’.  However, that was before I became a mom of a toddler!

I put aside my disgust with the fact they are green pancakes and decided to give them a try.  Truthfully, they were really good.  Other than them being green, I could not taste the peas.

I used the Bisquick pancake recipe and then added the peas.  I used 1/2 cup of frozen peas that I pureed.  These were not runny like you may initially think, I think part of the reason was that I used frozen peas as opposed to canned peas.  The frozen peas have a bit tougher texture to them.  Be sure to microwave, steam, or let them thaw before pureeing them.  I heated mine up in the microwave until they were soft.

My son loved these and had no idea he was getting a serving of veggies along with his pancakes!  I enjoyed these just as much.  Pea Pancakes will now be a regular meal in our household.
