Strawberry, Kiwi, Oat, & Banana Pancakes

a tiny bit more time cooking can save you from way more time cleaning up.

Aileen

Are you looking for a freezer-friendly baby led weaning breakfast idea? Mornings are really hard, so coming up with ideas for baby breakfast shouldn’t be. I’ve always found myself toying between a nice and easy healthy bowl of yoghurt with fruit or something that takes a little more time to cook. If you’re new to baby-led weaning here is a tiny bit of advice: a tiny bit more time cooking can save you from way more time cleaning up.

I’m not saying, never give your baby a messy bowl of yoghurt. Sensory play with textures like yoghurt is good for your baby. I’m just saying that some mornings don’t allow as much time for cleanup. So for those mornings, it’s a good idea to prepare a freezer-friendly batch of pancakes like oat and banana pancakes. That way you can serve them up quickly and have a few to freeze for another busy morning.

One of the extra benefits of making this baby breakfast is that you basically throw all of the pancake ingredients into a blender or food processor and pulse. It’s only one blender cup and one pan to clean up after. There is a bit of chopping of fruit involved but you can do that can’t you? I like to wash and chop fruit after I buy it. That way I can just store it in a container in the refrigerator and quickly use it as toppings or sweet snacks during the week. Strawberries, melon, and other sturdy fruit like mango work well for chopping ahead of time. Things like apples and bananas usually brown rather quickly I recommend chopping those right before serving (or grating for babies).

If you’ve made any of my pancake recipes before, you probably already know that I am a big fan of freezing pancakes. As I mentioned earlier, it’s just so quick and easy on those busy days. Plus, my kids LOVE pancakes, it’s a win-win. When you freeze pancakes, you’ll want to make sure they are completely cooled before storing them otherwise, you’ll get freezer burn (ice crystals). Once they’ve cooled, I like to separate them with just a small piece of parchment paper, this makes it easier to separate them later. It’s fine if you don’t have any, you may just have to pull a bit harder to get them apart. Then when you’re ready to serve you just pop them in the toaster oven or microwave for about 15-20 seconds. Top with goodies like strawberry and kiwi and voila, a healthy baby breakfast is served in minutes!

The best part about these pancakes is that they are really, really inexpensive to make. The majority of the ingredients are part of the Dunnes Stores Everyday Savers range.

If you make these pancakes and LOVE THEM, it would be super amazing of you to share and tag @babyledfeeding on Instagram or Facebook. Any comments and feedback would be amazing too! You can also like or follow for more healthy baby-led weaning recipes.

A dollop of natural yoghurt
1/4 tsp maple syrup (optional)

Method

  1. Add the oats, baking powder and banana to the blender.
  2. Pour in the milk, butter or coconut oil and eggs, then blend until it turns into a smooth creamy mixture.
  3. Heat a pan over medium heat, then add a small amount of butter, then pour some batter onto the pan and cook until the top starts to bubble. Then flip over and cook until both sides are golden.
  4. To serve, add a dollop of natural yoghurt to the top, add the fruit and if using drizzle over a little maple syrup.

Recipe Notes

Freeze pancakes with a little parchment paper in between each one to prevent sticking. When you want to use one just take it directly from the freezer and defrost in a toaster!
