Along with all the joy, having an almost one year old (one tomorrow!) does present its challenges. Our little man is a very good boy but my goodness does he know how to make a mess.

I swear, just minutes after he is awake, the kitchen looks like it has been ransacked. To get from one side to the other is like going through one of those hard-core obstacle courses people pay money to exercise on.

Lately he has thrown a new hazard into the mix – the moving bins. We have a pretty big double stainless steel pedal bin that usually sits at the end of the bench. But no, Ollie doesn’t like where we keep it, he likes to move it around the kitchen so while you’re avoiding standing on a whisk, you also have to dodge the often-on-the-move bin.

I happened to get rammed by said bin on two occasions while making these gluten free berry pancakes with macadamia and Ollie thought it was pretty funny. I had to pick him up and show him what I was doing to stop him from the attack.

He’s actually really interested in cooking which as you can imagine, I am very excited about. If the mixer is running he walks (yes walks now!) up and stands there staring then insists on being picked up to see what’s cooking.

 I think he has caught on that me cooking usually results in him eating something tasty. I made these mini pancakes as a healthy morning snack for the two of us. Ollie gobbled his up plain and I enjoyed mine with a bit of yoghurt and some extra berries.

Feel free to use store-bought macadamia meal which is now available I hear. You can also make your own in the food processor or Thermomix, but just be careful you don’t make macadamia butter – delicious but not the goal. Enjoy!
