Full Answer

The ingredients for iron-rich pancakes blends 1 cup of fortified oats with 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour, 2 tablespoons of baking powder, 1/4 cup ground flaxseed, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon salt, 2 cups whole milk, two eggs, two bananas, puree of 1/2 apple and 1/3 tablespoon of vegetable oil, as stated by Butte Creek Mill.

The first step in the recipe includes mixing everything but the apple puree and banana together, whisking well. The next step includes pureeing the banana and mixing it with the apple puree in a separate bowl, before combining the two bowls and mixing well to complete the batter. Cooking the pancakes in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat for a couple of minutes on each side, and turning when bubbles form through the pancakes, yields the breakfast. Options include adding dried fruit or roasted pecans to the top of the pancakes in order to boost the iron content even further, notes Butte Creek Mill.
