Egg-Free Pancakes with Pineapple Coulis

One of my absolute favourite recipes for baby led weaning breakfast is pancakes! They are one of the best finger foods for babies and toddlers and are also great cold in lunchboxes as well.

This baby pancake recipe is egg-free and I also used a plant-based milk too so they are perfect for little ones with allergies. They don’t need any sweetener with the pineapple as it is already super sweet enough.

Egg-Free Pancakes

Flaxseed’s health benefits come from the fact that it’s high in fiber and omega-3 fatty acids, as well as phytochemicals called lignans.

Mayo Clinic

So your baby can’t eat egg, which I’m sure has you up the walls wondering what you can replace it with. For this recipe, I used the ground flaxseed from the Dunnes Stores WholeFoods range. The bag cost €1 and it is such a super replacement for egg. You could also use chia seed too but my preference is flax because I love the flavour.

“Flaxseed’s health benefits come from the fact that it’s high in fiber and omega-3 fatty acids, as well as phytochemicals called lignans. One tablespoon (7 grams) of ground flaxseed contains 2 grams of polyunsaturated fatty acids (includes the omega 3s), 2 grams of dietary fiber and 37 calories.

Flaxseed is commonly used to improve digestive health or relieve constipation. Flaxseed may also help lower total blood cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein (LDL, or “bad”) cholesterol levels, which may help reduce the risk of heart disease.” -Mayo Clinic

3 ingredient Pineapple & Turmeric Coulis 

The sauce is so simple and uses only 3 simple ingredients – Pineapple, Lemon and Turmeric. I promise you will make this every single week! I used turmeric initially to make the sauce more yellow but the addition to the sauce is unreal! It not only enhances the colour but adds so much goodness too. Turmeric has some incredible anti-inflammation properties and I have read some incredible posts over the past while. This article from the BBC will give you tonnes of information: https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/howto/guide/health-benefits-turmeric

Baby-led weaning pancakes and toddler snack ideas 

One of the biggest requests on my social media is from parents looking for snack ideas for baby-led weaning or toddler snack ideas. My biggest recommendation for first finger foods for babies would 100% be pancakes! They are so amazing and are literally packed full of goodness. Some of Baby Led Feeding’s most popular pancakes include:

You have a good mix of gluten-free pancakes here and also egg-free pancakes too. All totally safe for those little hands and perfect for the freezer too. Just put a little parchment paper in-between each one, then freeze. You can simply defrost in a toaster for a super quick toddler snack – because we all know toddlers will not wait for food. EVER!
