5.Â Eggless OatsÂ Pancakes WithÂ Nutella AndÂ Banana
I discovered this recipe when one day my child refused to eat her oats with fruits. And like I always believe experience leads to innovation, it did so in this case also. I tried making a batter out of the oats and banana and added some rava (semolina) to it. We did have yummy pancakes which are again a wholesome and heavy meal. What I love about this recipe is the amount of nutrition and fun you can add to it.
