As long as our kids are not over eating or obese or gaining few extra pounds rapidly, they can indulge in deep fried snacks, sticky sugary syrup or chocolates occasionally. Giving a candy occasionally as a reward is not harmful. As moms, we need to know when to say 'STOP'. That's what my doctor said!
I was really concerned with Omy's increasing sugar intake. He could lick away a bowl of sugar in minutes or finish up a huge chocolate bar in seconds!! (OK, a little exaggeration there... I din't offer him a bowl of sugar for dinner). Honestly, I get him a pack of chocolate covered sunflower seeds or M&M's just when he starts to raise the curtain of his cranky drama sequence.
Snack time is a highly anticipated part of the day for Omy. His face lights up like a rainbow and I would die to see him look so excited. Every day I spent like an hour thinking only of the snack idea for the day.
Recently in 'america's top model' show, a model from down south was frying oreo cookies for dinner!Trust me, a Model!!!
I am warning you...this awfully tempting snack initially might hide the much anticipated regret!!!!
I know I should stop eating kids' leftover food, so I made just 3 of them. 1 is already crying out loud in my tummy! I wouldn't say its awesome nor will I recommend but its a one-time worthy snack. Deep fry makes the cookie turn into a cake like texture. The crisp pancake coating enhances the taste.
Pancake mix 1/3 cup
Oreo cookie 3
Add water and mix up to form the pancake batter.
Cover the cookies in this and deep fry them.
Pick them up as soon as the coating turns dark brown.
Omy din't actually seem to like it. He ate two of them but I din't get the 'yummy' confirmation from him. He said he did rather eat his 'Thomas toothpaste'!!!
