When my twins were around the 8 month mark, I was looking for ways to make the morning rush a little easier! My simple BLW pancake breakfast recipe for babies and toddlers has become a super quick morning go-to!
Porridge, while nourishing, can be a time consuming breakfast for babies and toddlers – and not to mention messy when I needed to get out of the door on time. However lovely nutritious oats are such a great morning breakfast for little tummies. So with a little inspiration from Nigella – I created these. A simple BLW pancake breakfast recipe for babies & toddlers. Made with nourishing porridge oats. They taste soooo good and are pretty healthy so perfect to eat with them if you’re trying to be virtuous.
Simple BLW pancake breakfast recipe for babies and toddlers
Ingredients: (makes around 10 miniature pancakes)
80g of porridge flakes, ground up in a grinder or food processor into a powder.
Teaspoon of baking powder. Sprinkle of cinnamon.
1 Free Range egg.
Approx 100mls of milk (your choice here, I like to use unsweetened almond or oat.)
Your choice of fruit, banana or blueberry work well (be careful how hot the blueberries get though!)
Teaspoon of vanilla extract.
Mix the dry ingredients into a bowl until combined whilst heating up the coconut oil in a frying pan over a low heat. Then add the egg, vanilla and a splash of the milk and combine together to make a paste. Keep adding the milk gradually. The consistency should not be runny, but not too thick.

The consistency should not be runny, but not too thick. You can add your preference of fruit now if you wish – our favourites include:
- Banana (this works well with the cinnamon)
- Raspberries and vanilla (instead of the cinnamon use a couple of drops of vanilla extract)
- Plain with homemade blueberry syrup dolloped over the top once cooked.
Drop tablespoons of the mixture into the pan – around 3-4 should fit in at a time. After a couple of minutes small air bubbles start to appear, this is your queue to flip. A couple of minutes on the other side and they should be done, just cut through one to check – they should be nice and fluffy.
Lovely served alongside some finger fruit, and if it’s you eating them – a steaming cup of coffee (obviously). Enjoy!
