I adopt the 'all-in-one' method to most of the ingredients using a 'half a cup' measuring utensil so you get a perfectly close texture each time. They are a 'heavy' and filling pancake so don't dissolve in baby's hand either.
One banana mashed into the batter works well but you could just as easily use blueberries or strawberries.
The below makes enough for two little ones plus a parent-sized portion, or you can wrap up and pop in the fridge for the following morning.
|Weaning Mashed Banana and Oat All-in-One Pancakes|
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup full fat milk
- 1/2 cup plain flour
- 1/2 cup porridge oats
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 banana
- Little drizzle vegetable oil
Add a little drizzle of vegetable oil into a pan and place on a low heat.
Into a mixing bowl, crack two large eggs, and add the 1/2 cup full of flour, oats and milk. Stir well with a fork until you gave a thick batter.
Now drop in the banana and mash into the batter with the vanilla and stir well.
Use a tablespoon to drop in several spoonfuls of the batter into the now hot-pan, ensuring they are spaced out enough not to combine in the pan.
Allow to cook for 3-4 minutes and then flip, they should be golden brown, and cook for the same time on the other side.
Serve with some fruit fingers. Enjoy!
