Easy & Healthy Banana Wheat Pancake for Toddlers

Gwen wakes up ravenous these days (growth spurt maybe?) and even after her fill of milk, she does the hand sign "more" for more food!

So I thought I'd better make headway in preparing hearty breakfasts for her. I needed something that's quick to prepare (Gwen's anchored to my legs in the kitchen), yet nutritious for a growing toddler.

Given these criteria, I decided I'll introduce her to my favourite breakfast.

Pancakes, toddler-friendly version!

These easy pancakes only require 3 common pantry ingredients, contain no sugar, and take 5-10 minutes to be served! Banana is my choice of flavour for Gwen's pancakes, but blueberries would also make a great alternative.

Why I Like These Pancakes

Storage (No waste!)

With excess pancakes, you could put them into a food storage bag and refrigerate to be eaten within the next 1-2 days. To consume, remove from refrigerator, thaw and heat up right before serving.

Great for baby-led weaning

These pancakes are delicious to whet the appetite of a toddler and ideal for baby-led weaning. It's not messy because the pancakes don’t drop crumbs everywhere and they're easy for little hands to grasp and bring to mouths.
