Toddler Treats: Animal Pancakes!

Welcome back to another week of Toddler treats and after last weeks vibrant and tasty rainbow spaghetti I fancied doing something a little fun, fruity & savoury this week. Something to put a smile on not only your toddlers face but the rest of the house too. How cute are these…
pancakesI love having this ability to make food more fun for my children to enjoy and these animal pancakes seemed like a fabulous idea! Really simple to make because all you need is whatever pancake recipe you use and I personally use this gorgeous American Fluffy pancake recipe from BBC-Food. Then really all you have to do is let your imagine run away with you!

As you can see I made a super cute lion with a mane of strawberries {Yum!} and a delicious chocolate chip mouth. The teddy bear which I think is my favourite, so insanely simple and cute. He is made with bananas for his ears and nose, and again chocolate chips for eyes and his little button nose.
Now, you’re maybe wondering what in heck the green one is and this was my attempt at making a turtle…have another look…do you see it? I swear his shell looked perfect before I flipped it, as I had his shell a lighter colour from the segments {using two shades of green colouring} you’d see on a turtle shell, but when I flipped it…it all smooshed in together – gutted! I found this one on Pinterest and knew I had to give him a go but he turned out to be a pinterest fail! haha!

I do hope you liked it and decide to have a go at making it yourself. If you do I’d love for you to hashtag #ToddlerTreats over on Twitter and tag me in, I’d love to see your dishes! Also if you missed previous weeks, they can all be found on my Toddler Treats page right here on the blog or you can pop over to my Pinterest board.

See you next week for more yummy treats!! I’m also linking up with the fabulous Grace from Eats Amazing and her linky Fun Food Friday & Victorias PoCoLo!
