Banana Cheesecake Pockets could be the perfect snack!
******These Banana Cheesecake Pockets would make a great snack for kids after school.
For one reason or another there has been a multitude of bananas in my life this month. Bananas everywhere. I was dreaming up all kinds of ways to use them when I was reminded of a trip to Thailand that I once took with a friend who was so scared of chillies that he ate nothing but Banana Sandwiches in every small beachside restaurant that we went to. (it was a month long stay!). It is surprising how many variations on a banana sandwich there is, and Thai people are very creative. This is such a variation and a good one at that. They are also perfect for breakfast with lashings of maple or syrup or cinnamon sugar.

I have a question. how do you cook your scrambled eggs? Do you add anything to the eggs?
So tell me. When you make scrambled eggs do you add anything to the eggs? I usually don’t. I like pure unadulterated egg in mine. I cook them till they are just underdone and creamy and then serve them straight up. I know a lot of people add cream or milk and like to cook them more. Is that you?. This week I experimented with a new trick for when you want your eggs well cooked and fluffy. What if you add a couple of tablespoons of mineral or soda water to the eggs in place of cream or milk…….. makes sense that it would add a bit of fluff and air right?. Well it is true, it does. Give it a go yourself.
And now…. back to Banana Cheesecake Pockets because they are all the go around here. They are made with wholemeal tiny pita’s that you can get in a bag of 12. These will really get everyone eating well without them even knowing about it!!!!
