Made with wholesome ingredients and a touch of sweetness from ripe bananas, these pancakes are both easy to make and full of flavor. Let’s dive into the recipe so you can treat your little one to a tasty and healthy meal.
- 1 ripe banana
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 egg
- 1-2 tablespoons water
- Cooking oil or butter for the pan
Prepare the Banana
Start by peeling the ripe banana and placing it in a mixing bowl. Use a fork to mash it until it’s smooth and there are no large lumps. Mashed bananas add natural sweetness and moisture to the pancakes.
Add the Dry Ingredients
In the same bowl with the mashed banana, add the whole wheat flour, baking powder, and cinnamon (if using). These ingredients provide essential nutrients and a mild, aromatic flavor. Mix them gently with the banana.
Incorporate Greek Yogurt
Spoon in the plain Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt adds creaminess and a dose of protein to the pancakes. Stir it into the mixture until you have a smooth batter.
Crack an Egg
Crack an egg into the bowl and whisk it lightly. The egg acts as a binding agent and adds more protein to your baby’s pancakes. Combine it with the rest of the ingredients.
Adjust the Consistency
Depending on the thickness of your batter, you may need to add 1-2 tablespoons of water to achieve the desired consistency. You want the batter to be pourable but not too thin. It should coat the back of a spoon.
Preheat Your Pan
Place a non-stick skillet or griddle on the stove and heat it over medium-low heat. Add a small amount of cooking oil or butter to prevent sticking.
Cook the Pancakes
Once the pan is hot, pour small, silver-dollar-sized portions of batter onto the skillet. Use a tablespoon to help shape them into neat circles. Cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side or until they are golden brown. Keep a close eye on them to prevent burning.
