Recipe: Banana Pancakes (Baby Led Weaning)

Looking for an easy baby led weaning breakfast idea? Try this recipe for banana pancakes. When it comes to weaning, there are certain go to recipes to have in your arsenal. This is one of them. It’s ridiculously simple (to the point that it doesn’t really need a post) and is perfect for all ages. These two ingredient pancakes got my son through breakfast time for the first year of his life. Now he’s a toddler, we still have them every now and again as a break from the normal cereals, fruit or toast. Oh, and of course, the baby can now join in.

I feel like a fraud writing this post because two ingredients hardly warrant a recipe. That said, I’d not heard of them prior to weaning so hopefully it’s useful to someone out there! Remember that you can always add different things to your pancake as your little one grows; blueberries (remember to let them cool), ground oats for a bit more texture or even chocolate chips once they’re old enough!
