Easy Banana Pancakes For Babies And Toddlers

Banana pancakes are a quick and nutritious way to offer your baby a yummy breakfast. When I first started making pancakes for my older child I got obsessed with trying out different combinations of flours, adding healthy mix-ins like nut butter and seed powders, and trying out flavor combinations, and before I knew it we had a few of our favorite pancake recipes become a regular breakfast item.

In today’s post, I share my favorite recipe for banana pancakes for babies. These fluffy banana pancakes for babies are easy to eat and serve making them perfect for baby-led weaning and they are protein-packed giving babies a filling start to the day.

WHEN TO SERVE BABY PANCAKES?

Soft fluffy pancakes can be offered to babies as young as 7 months old in finger-length pieces and later as the baby develops a pincer grasp (around 8-9 months of age) in tiny bite-size pieces.

HOW TO BUILD NUTRITIOUS BABY-LED WEANING PANCAKES?

I call this my baby pancake recipe because it contains no added sugar and baking powder and instead relies on whole food ingredients to sweeten the flavor and give the pancakes a fluffy texture.

The egg and yogurt make the banana pancakes protein-rich for babies. 

Simple additions like egg, yogurt, whole flour of choice, and seasonal fruit when added to the batter make the recipe nutritious helping pack in as many nutrients in a single recipe instead of worrying about what else to serve along with the meal to add more nutrients.

You can even add some nut butter or nuts powder to the batter, or flaxseed powder to get in healthy fats and Omega 3s in the meal.

MAKING THE BANANA PANCAKES TODDLER-FRIENDLY

As children grow they need more iron and protein. To amp up the nutrient density for toddlers, you can add some healthy toppings like peanut butter, chopped berries, toasted coconut flakes, hemp seeds, or more Greek yogurt.

Other toppings like honey, maple syrup, chocolate chips, or some sprinkles also add to the fun and enjoyment of the meal.

HOW TO MAKE BABY BANANA PANCAKES WITH NO EGG

A common question I get on most pancake recipes I share here is, how to make pancakes without eggs?

You can use flax egg to give the pancakes a fluffy and soft texture.

To make the flax egg you need, 1 tablespoon of flaxseed powder and 2-3 tbsp water. Mix and keep on side for 20 minutes. The flaxseed powder will absorb all the water and come to a jelly-like consistency. Use this mixture in your batter as an egg replacement.

Once the batter is made using the flaxseed I like to give it additional rest time to help the flax egg work better in the mixture. You can either set the batter aside another 20 minutes before making the pancakes or you can make the pancake batter the night before and store it in the fridge to be used in the morning at breakfast.

This extra time gives the best results when it comes to making pancakes without eggs or baking powder.
