Banana Oat Pancakes

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.

Yield: 10

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 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)

Method:

  1. Add all the ingredients, except the honey and strawberries (if using),
    to a compact blender and blitz until you reach a smooth batter consistency.
  2. 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).
  3. 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.
  4. Drizzle with honey or maple syrup and top with berries if you like. Serve immediately.

Tips:

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.
