Pancakes are a great first food for babies and simple to make. You’ve probably heard of the classic “oatmeal banana” pancakes for babies, but there are so many other flavor variations that can be explored. Pancakes are a fun and easy way of introducing new flavors and textures to your little ones. Whether you’re turning pancakes bright green from added spinach or adding bursts of flavors with blueberries, there are so many possibilities!
1. OATMEAL BANANA PANCAKES
This classic recipe is a signature for a reason, it is so simple to make and comes together with only a few ingredients! Oatmeal banana pancakes are a great way to use up overripe bananas and include a great serving of oats!
2. PANCAKE CEREAL
Pancake cereal is a fun take on the classic oatmeal banana pancake, but it mini, bite-size form. These adorable little pancake bites are tiny and great for serving as a snack. To make pancake cereal, simply use the oatmeal banana pancake recipe above, pour the batter into a squeeze bottle, and squeeze out small dime-sized circles onto a pre-heated pan. It takes a little more effort than traditional pancakes, but make a fun treat!
3. BLUEBERRY PANCAKES
Blueberries add the perfect bursts of natural sweetness when incorporated into pancakes. If your little one is a fan of blueberries, they will love these fruity flavored pancakes!
4. SPINACH BANANA PANCAKES
Spinach is a nutrient dense vegetable that is great to incorporate into meals for your little one. Blend spinach into your pancake batter for fun colored, nutritious pancakes that your little ones are sure to love!
5. CINNAMON APPLE PANCAKES
These cinnamon apple pancakes use apples as the main sweetener instead of banana. They are fluffy with a warm cinnamon flavor making them a comforting breakfast treat.
6. PUMPKIN PANCAKES
Who says pumpkin is only for the fall? I love making these pancakes all year round for that rich pumpkin flavor and taste. This batter also doubles as waffle mix!
7. BANANA PANCAKE BITES
This Tik Tok trend has quickly become a favorite in our house. Simply dip thin slices of banana into a pancake batter and cook into small bites. I’ve experimented with using strawberries and apples as the dipped fruit and my boys have loved them all!
8. BEET BANANA PANCAKES
The bananas provide sweetness to these pancakes and the beets give the pancakes that vibrant pink color! Beets can be a hit or miss with little ones, but the natural sweetness from the banana helps to balance out the earthy beet taste!
9. CHOCOLATE BANANA PANCAKES
These pancakes get their chocolatey flavor from a little added cocoa and their sweetness from bananas. Chocolate and banana flavors pair so well together and can be served with a side of berries for an extra sweet treat!
10. PEAR PANCAKES
Pears are often underrated compared to some other popular fruits, but they are so flavorful! Ripe pears contain so much natural sweetness that is perfect in these pancakes. Don’t sleep on the power of the pear!
