Sometimes a vintage dress is all it takes for her to be the center of attention. She paraded around, twirling and swirling. Her daddy and I soak in all the sass...

Baby Cereal Pancakes

I skipped the rice cereal with Kayden but had already bought a can so I didn’t want it to go to waste and tried this recipe. They turned out really good, and she loved these. Kayden was a late eater (11 months) and started real solids (skipped purees) I can not even begin to describe how easy and wonderful this has been (baby led solids) for our family. 


1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup baby barley cereal (or other baby cereal)
1 cup breast milk (or another liquid such as milk or formula)
1/2 cup mashed banana (or fruit of your choice)
1 tbsp melted margarine or butter (unsalted type)
3 egg yolks
1/2 cup baby oatmeal
unsweetened apple juice (about 1/2 cup) Use water if you prefer 

Add cinnamon, nutmeg, dash of vanilla or other flavorings if you wish.


Mix all ingredients together and add enough juice to make pancake consistency. Cook on cook top in frying pan as with “regular” pancakes.
I almost always have pancakes in my diaper bag! Now I add purees like sweet potato or squash to them for some extra nutrition. These freeze well, so you can make a batch and have some on hand for a few days.
