    Sounds delicious!! Do you have an option for a banana replacement if you can’t eat Bananas?

    Hi Elyse,
    I have been using ‘Steph’s’ recipes for some years now. I am looking at alternative meals and snacks for my 13 month old. I love the look of these pancakes, is the ‘Melrose Essential Greens’ safe for young ones?
    Thanks Fiona

    Hi Fiona, that’s so great to hear! As the Melrose Essential Greens has a combination of ingredients I would recommend starting with a singular ingredient to test first just to be safe (e.g. Melrose Spirulina). Keep in mind these work perfectly without the greens powder if you wanted to give them a go prior to getting your hands on a product. I hope that helps 🙂

    Could you substitute green banana flour for the Essential Green in these pancakes?

  5. Elyse Lagos

    Hi Sue, absolutely 🙂 That would be a great alternative to the essential greens!
