Hershey Kiss Pancakes

The battle at mealtime continues…

As most of you probably already know, I have a picky eater on my hands. I have tried doing everything. I have tried doing absolutely nothing as well. For those of you out there that also have a finicky child, you know how frustrating it can be. Luckily, there are a few mealtime gems that always win my daughter over.

Just like a typical woman, my little girl loves chocolate. For Christmas she got a plastic cane cane filled with Hershey Kisses, so we made some pancakes with them. They were a home run. This weekend my husband requested them & again they were a huge hit with the family. Mai of course helped make them. She ate all of hers & even stole some of daddy’s.

Hershey Kiss Pancakes

Ingredients:

1 cup of flour

1 tbsp brown sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp of salt

1 cup of milk

2 tbsp vegetable oil

1 tsp vanilla

2 ripened bananas

1/8 cup peanut butter (this offers a subtle taste, if you are a peanut butter lover you may opt for more)

1 egg white

Hershey kisses (one kiss per pancake.)

Directions:

In a medium mixing bowl combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, vegetable oil  & vanilla. In a separate bowl, mash the ripened banana using a fork. (If you have an eager little helper, a potato masher works well for them to lend a hand.) Stir in the peanut butter until smooth. Add to the flour mixture & stir until evenly distributed. Stir in the milk & egg white. Heat a griddle or frying pan at medium – high heat. (Test with a few drops of water, the water should dance across the cooking surface for best results) Add 1/8 cup at a time. When the edges of the pancakes start to bubble and firm, flip them. Lightly press a Hershey kiss into the center of your pancake. Cook until the bottom is golden brown. We ate these plain, but of course top with butter & syrup if that is your preference. Enjoy.

  1. Lol- I have totally resorted to that cooking method! When my son was small he would only eat pancakes-so I filled them with bits of ham and fruit and whatever else I could sneak in there!

    I stooped so low as to give our son spoons full of yogurt and spinach mixed together when he was tiny, just to get him to eat some vegetables. It sounds really gross, but he actually ate it!

  3. I have done chocolate chip pancakes here, but not Hershey Kiss and totally going to try this for my girls now next weekend. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Looks delicious!
    Btw, my picky eater has now at 4,5 started to eat most “normal” things (boiled veggies are of course still a no-no). It will get better.

  5. Those pancakes look so beautiful and delicious! I’ve started a blog about activities for picky eaters at learntolovefood.com; I think you might like it. I’d love to hear what you think!
