Breakfast can easily get quite boring and standard every day. I find I’m serving my bambinos either porridge or Weetabix a little too often. So I now try to give them something a bit different for breakfast a couple of times a week.
These pancakes are so yummy and filling. They are also ideal for baby led weaning. I make these pancakes a few times a month for the whole family. The oats will help to keep you and your bambinos fuller for longer. Drizzle with some honey or maple syrup to subtly sweeten them. I like to serve with fresh strawberries.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
- 100g rolled or old fashioned oats
- 100ml whole milk
- 1/2 large banana
- 1 large egg
- 1 tbsp plain or greek yogurt
- 1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- pinch of ground cinnamon
- butter for frying
- honey or maple syrup (optional)
- strawberries, chopped or sliced (optional)
- Add all the ingredients, except the honey and strawberries (if using),
to a compact blender and blitz until you reach a smooth batter consistency.
- Heat a small knob of butter in a frying pan and add a tablespoon of the batter per pancake. (I was able to make 4 at a time in my large frying pan).
- Cook for 3-4 mins until golden brown then flip and cook the other side for three minutes or until golden brown. When you flip the pancake gently press down using a spatula to help ensure the pancake cooks evenly.
- Drizzle with honey or maple syrup and top with berries if you like. Serve immediately.
Remember honey should only be given to children over 1 due to the risk of bacterial spores present which can cause botulism.
Rolled oats are the same as old fashioned oats.
