We’re obsessed with pancakes in this house (and by we, I mean Poppy) and these Banana Pancakes are pancakes you can feel good about feeding your babies! (no added sugar!)
I’m truly obsessed with feeding Poppy. It’s the highlight of my day to give her new things that she can try. I love watching her eyes light up when she tried new flavors, textures etc. These Banana Pancakes have been a favorite of hers for quite some time and I love them because they take 15 seconds to whip up.
They’re not a traditional pancake as they don’t have any flour or dry ingredients really that go into the mixture. Rather it’s a combo of eggs, banana, oats and cinnamon (cardamom is great too) that gets blended up in a blender for 15 seconds and then into a skillet. There’s no need to prep anything ahead, just toss it into a blender and then pour small batches into a greased skillet to cook. The result is protein loaded Banana Pancakes that are truly delish. I’ve added in a sprinkle of mini chocolate chips and/or blueberries if I want to add in more flavor.
If you’re just starting out on your baby food journey – I wrote a whole post on how we got started for Poppy!
What you’ll need:
- 1 large ripe banana
- 2 large eggs
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons old fashioned oats
- butter or oil for the pan
- Place all of the ingredients in a blender and puree for 30 seconds until smooth.
- Heat a sauté pan over medium heat. Add a pad of butter and melt.
- Pour pancakes onto the butter pan and cook for 2 minutes on each side. You'll know when it's time to flip when the outer edges start to bubble. Serve immediately.
This seems like a great ‘on the go’ breakfast or snack!
I would like to substitute pumpkin for the banana. How much pumpkin would I need?
I haven’t tested it with pumpkin but that’s a great idea!
Hi Gaby! Can you sub oat out 1:1 with whole wheat flour? I’ve got an oat allergy kid 🙂 Thx!
I haven’t tested it but I think that would work
These are so easy and delicious. Our grandkids (9 months and 2 1/2 love them) Who would have thought …. Well Gaby did!! Also they reheat very well – bring to room temp and then put them in a hot pan for a minute.
