Simple pancakes made with just three ingredients – oats, eggs and banana. Ideal for baby led weaning and finger food for toddlers.
A couple of years ago I shared this recipe for 2 Ingredient Baby Weaning Pancakes which has now probably become one of my most popular recipes to date. To be honest I feel like a bit of a fraud calling it a recipe when it literally just involves mashed banana and egg but I guess it’s the simplicity that makes it so popular!
So I decided to make another version this time with three ingredients. I included oats in this recipe which makes the pancakes a bit more substantial. Oats are a great source of fibre and slow releasing complex carbs which will help to fill little tummies up.
These pancakes are ideal for baby led weaning as they are soft to eat and really easy for babies to pick up with their hands. They also make great finger food for older babies and toddlers too. I think these pancakes make a really healthy and delicious breakfast but can be served any time of the day.
They can also be made ahead of time and kept in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 48 hours. To reheat, fry them gently again in a frying pan or warm in the microwave.
