    Baby Cereal Pancakes Recipe

    Cereal pancakes can be the perfect breakfast for a weaning baby. They are rich in minerals and fiber, which can keep your little one full and happy for an extended period; plus, added fruits are a great source of vitamins!

    Pancakes are a great option if you want to upgrade your baby's regular porridge and help your baby get used to different textures and finger foods. Did you know allowing your little one to feed themselves also helps improves hand-eye coordination? That's right! With baby pancakes, you can nourish your child while supporting their fine motor skills.

    Organic's Best Healthy Cereal Pancake Recipe 🥞

    I think we're all too familiar with the fact that sometimes, toddlers get tired of certain foods seemingly out of the blue, leading to unused boxes of baby food in the pantry. Well, rather than letting boxes of baby cereal collect dust in your cupboard or go to waste, we have a solution for you. Here's an easy recipe for healthy baby cereal pancakes that are also freezer-friendly! That means you can prepare them in bulk and pull out as many frozen ones as you need in the morning. These pancakes are made to turn out a little denser than regular ones, which is an excellent exercise for your baby's new teeth!

    Ingredients 👩‍🍳

    • 1 cup whole wheat flour

    • 1 cup Holle Organic Rice

    • 1 cup Holle Organic Oats

    • 1 cup formula or milk, depending upon age

    • 1/2 cup mashed fruit of choice

    • 1 tbsp melted butter

    • 1 egg

    • 1/2 cup apple juice or water

    • Dash of cinnamon or vanilla (optional)

    * To help your child get used to different flavors you can experiment with the spices.

    Instructions 📃

    • Mix the ingredients together. Stir until well combined and an even pancake consistency is reached.
    • Cook on the stovetop in a frying pan like any other regular pancakes.
    • Use a spoon to pour the batter into the pan. This will help keep the portion sizes smaller so you won't have to cut them later on. 
    • Cool, serve, and enjoy!

    Hello Arp, thanks so much for your comment!

    When it comes to using baby formula in pancake recipes, as long as the formula is freshly prepared right before making the recipe and you follow the instructions provided on the package, it can be used safely.

    Alternatively, if your baby has no allergies to cow’s milk (CMPA), you can use cow’s milk instead of formula in small quantities for the pancake recipe.

    However, it’s important to note that plain cow’s milk should not be given to babies under 1 year old as their primary source of nutrition. The pancake recipe would only contain a small amount of cow’s milk, so it should be fine within the context of this recipe.

    If you have any concerns, it’s always a good idea to consult your pediatrician for personalized advice regarding your baby’s specific dietary needs.

    We hope that helps clear things up for you!

    Hi, is it safe to use formula milk to prepare the pancake recipe. Many bloggers are mentioning that it should not be used.. actually I tried the recipe with formula milk for my 9months baby.. but then I saw many articles stating that it should not be used.. Can you advise?
