I have something special for you guys today.

And it gets better than this amazing veggie-loaded Banana-Spinach Pancake Pizza.

Friends, I want to introduce you to one of my favorite ladies and mamas on the internet, Heather Staller.

Heather is an amazing mom of two boys who not only teaches children’s cooking classes, but shares a passion for veggie-loaded recipes that are kid-friendly….like me!

Heather’s incredible recipes are easy, nutrient dense and are always full of love and flavor! She gets that recipes need to be simple to make but appealing and fun while serving up a healthy dose of real food. I love her mission almost as much as I love her recipes, which is why I asked her to share one of the recipes out of her new ebook, No Sugar, Still Sweet.

You guys are going to be as dazzled by her recipes as I am and I know you are going to want to make this amazing Banana-Spinach Pancake Pizza.

What’s better than grain-free, veggie-loaded pancakes for breakfast? A giant, nutritious pancake that looks like a pizza! This banana-spinach baked pancake is the perfect recipe to get some veggies into the first meal of the day while also getting the kids in the kitchen to help blend up the batter and top it with fruit as they please.

 Hi! I’m Heather, a kids’ cooking instructor, recipe developer, mom of two boys, and veggie enthusiast. Taesha has graciously allowed to be share one of the recipes from my first e-cookbook, No Sugar, Still Sweet. (More about the book later.) Thank you for having me here!

On my Instagram page @heather.happykidskitchen I love to share recipes that get parents excited to cook with their kids and get kids invested in trying new things. I believe educating children about real-food ingredients, letting them smell, touch, play with, and cook with fruits and vegetables, will lay the foundation for a healthy future and lifelong love of cooking meals from scratch. The pancake “pizza” recipe I am sharing below is the perfect combination of healthy and fun. Plus, it is a super easy recipe that allows for your child’s participation every step of the way: Measure and add all the ingredients to the blender, pour the batter into the prepared pan, then slice up some extra banana, strawberries, or any fruit you have on hand, and have fun decorating the top. Once the pancake is baked, use a pizza wheel to cut the pancake into wedges to get the full effect. We love the pancake drizzled with almond butter or served with blueberry-chia sauce for dipping. So yummy!

As I mentioned earlier, this Banana-Spinach Pancake “Pizza” recipe is one of 15 recipes included in the No Sugar, Still Sweet e-book that just launched on Monday. Kacie Barnes, an incredible pediatric dietitian, and I teamed up to give readers a comprehensive guide to reducing added-sugars in their families’ diets. The book includes ideas for low-sugar snacks, how to read food labels for added-sugar, lower-sugar meal ideas, and 15 fruit-sweetened breakfast, snack, and dessert recipes. Sugar is a sticky subject and we want to acknowledge that every family has a different approach to how sugar is handled in their lives. Personally, there are times when my kids eat traditional sugary treats and there are places where we use natural sweeteners like honey or maple syrup. However, since there are so many places to get added-sugars in our diets, especially when eating outside of the home, Kacie and I wanted to arm parents with the tools and recipes to make sugar less of a presence in home-cooked breakfasts, baked goods and treats. Fruit does have sugar, but ingredients like bananas, apples, and dates have tons of beneficial nutrients and fiber that come along with them. For us, it is about promoting balance and empowering parents to make the best choices for their own families.

 No Sugar, Still Sweet also has some veggie-loaded recipes that I think you would be interested in trying. Some example are:

  • “Carrot Cake” Slow-Cooker/Instant Pot Oatmeal

  • Sweet Potato Muffin Tops

  • Zucchini Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.

Most recipes are gluten-free or easily adapted to be. If you have any questions about the kinds of recipes included in the book, suggestions for ingredient substitutes, or anything at all, please find me at @heather.happykidskitchen on Instagram or Happy Kids Kitchen on Facebook. I love connecting with other parents and being able to support each other in raising happy, healthy families. Please come find me and say hi!

Do all these recipes sound amazing to you? Check out Heather’s ebook, No Sugar, Still Sweet , and fall in love with naturally sweetened treats!
