Easy baby pancakes
I am not a morning person. My husband, baby, and I are all night owls. And sleeping in is not really a reality with a baby (and 2 loud dogs). So anything I can do to save time in the morning and get a few extra minutes of sleep is a super bonus.
Meal prep is one of my favorite ways to save time because I’m already making the food anyway, why not just spend a few extra minutes to save a few hours?
These baby pancakes are quick to make and freeze well. They only have 2 ingredients, so they are easy on a sensitive baby’s tummy. You can keep it simple with just the 2 ingredients, or add more to make them fancy. I like to grind up a few tablespoons of oats into a flour and add that to the batter for my pancakes, and you can also add cinnamon or vanilla extract, or even applesauce. I leave the pancakes for Baby just plain, but the husband and I will add peanut butter, yogurt, or maple syrup to make them fancy.
Disclaimer: I am not a pediatrician, and I am in NO WAY telling you what to feed your baby! Always consult with your child’s health provider regarding foods and dietary concerns.
Add all ingredients to a blender and blend on low to medium until everything is combined.
Pour about 1/4 cup of batter at a time into a hot skillet, cooking on low heat for about a minute, then flip and cook other side. Use coconut oil or grass fed butter to fry them to add some more healthy fats.
Place pancakes between layers of parchment paper, then into a ziploc bag for storage in the freezer.
My baby does great with chewing small pieces, so I use a pizza cutter to cut the pancake into several appropriate sized pieces for her. The pieces are soft and easy to gum/chew, but make sure they are appropriate for your baby, and that you are constantly supervising them while they eat.
