Ingredients

  • one 4-ounce jar of baby food fruit puree, such as apple or strawberry-banana

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda

Preparation

In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together fruit puree and eggs.

Cook for 3 minutes, until the bottom is lightly browned.

Flip over and cook for an additional 2 minutes until cooked through.
7
Yields approximately 10 silver-dollar (2-inch size) pancakes. Serve with pureed baby food as a topping or dipping sauce.
Storage Guidelines:
8
Separate a small amount for your baby to eat and save the rest in the fridge or freezer. For food safety, do not save any leftovers from portions you serve your baby.
9
Refrigerator: Store in fridge for up to 3 days.
10
Freezer: Freeze flat on a cookie sheet and then place in a plastic bag or freezer-safe container. Can be stored for up to 3 months.
Recipe Tips

If you don’t have a fruit puree on hand, you can use fresh bananas instead. Simply mash one or two bananas with a fork until smooth. Use 4 ounces in place of a pre-made puree. 

For savory pancakes, swap out the jar of fruit puree with a vegetable puree. Serve plain or with a dipping sauce of your choosing!
