Banana Kefir Plaatkoekies

Plaatkoekies served with Kefir Cream Cheese with a Cherry (or three) on top!


It’s Weekend & I have plenty over ripe bananas and I figure that it’s good enough reason to make a batch of Banana Kefir Plaatkoekies for breakfast! Plaatkoekies, at our house, doesn’t happen often but is a due treat every once in a while.

This is a old family recipe that I’ve tweaked a bit, I’ve found that the bananas add moisture and extra flovour to the Plaatkoekie.
