I ended up making her lots of plantain and pumpkin biscuits/crackers and pancakes. It was a great transition food to help her forget about the dreaded bunny grahams and cookies. They all had a nice texture, a mild natural sweetness and an ability to go well with eggs, bacon or other food of substance.
But, these recipes are not just for toddlers. The Plantain Pancake recipe is perfect for a weekend brunch or a breakfast-for-dinner night! It is mildly sweet and has the most delightful fluffy texture. Make it for yourself, your friends, or your super picky partner that swears all healthy food tastes like cardboard. I guarantee you, this one does not. My Plantain Cracker recipe is also a great alternative to your Wheat Thins or whatever golden, fake-buttery cracker you happen to be finishing a box of in boredom. You will probably finish these plantain crackers pretty quickly, but you can be happy that you are getting a great deal of resistant starch, fiber, potassium, and vitamins along with a pleasantly full stomach.
