Banana Oatmeal Pancakes - Baby Food

I made Bisquick pancakes a few weeks ago and made Liam a few. He liked them, but I wasn't fond of the crap in them. I've been searching for an easier and healthier recipe for Liam. I finally found an easy Banana Oatmeal Pancake recipe. These are dairy free which is what I've been really looking for. They can be gluten free and all those other things free if you need them to be.

I doubled the recipe and froze some. I heat one pancake up for about 30 seconds, cut it into small pieces and serve with apple sauce. Liam loves this for breakfast.

  • 2 large or 3 small bananas, mashed 
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted 
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice 
  • 1 tbsp sugar 
  • 2 large eggs 
  • 1 cup oat flour 
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda 
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt 
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon, ground 
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg, ground 

  1. Mash bananas and mix the melted butter, lemon juice, and sugar together. 
  2. Add the eggs and mix. 
  3. Mix together the dry ingredients and add to the wet ingredients. 
  4. Let the batter rest for 10 minutes. (This allows the oatmeal to absorb some liquid.) 
  5. Make pancakes on griddle like normal. These take a little bit longer to cook, they are thicker. Keep the skillet/griddle on a lower heat. 
I added a teaspoon of vanilla extract to these to enhance the flavor.
To make Oat Flour - I used my Ninja chopper to grind up (non-instant) oatmeal into a flour.
