  • 1 medium overripe banana
  • ¼ cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 - 1½ tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • butter/oil or greasing pan


  • Preheat a frying pan on low heat and add in a little butter/oil.
  • Blend all of the ingredients together until smooth.
  • Spoon out tablespoon amounts of batter and form small circles on a greased pan to cook.
  • Once bubbles begin to form, flip over the pancakes and cook for a couple of minutes on the other side.


  • Cocoa powder does contain a small amount of caffeine, so be mindful of that when deciding whether to offer these pancakes to your baby. The amount of unsweetened cocoa powder used in this recipe is very small.
  • Low heat is very important in this recipe! These pancakes can burn easily if the heat is too high, so make sure to cook on low heat and make sure that your pan is preheated before adding the batter.
  • I love using this nutribullet blender to blend the ingredients into a smooth batter!
  • Use a very light layer of oil when greasing the pan, wiping away any excess.
