Baby Pancakes

These pancakes are suitable for babies once whole eggs and seeds have been introduced. That is generally after about 8-12 months. They make a great finger food. Make a bunch at a time and serve then any time of the day or carry them with you for on-the-go snacks.

These are full of nutrition, are easy to digest and are dairy free and grain free. They are a good source of zinc, iron, calcium, soluble fiber, beta carotene and good fats.

For optimal digestibility, the seeds should be soaked overnight before using them. This starts the sprouting process and deactivates some of the enzyme inhibitors and hard to digest components found in seeds. Simply place your seeds in a bowl, cover them with warm filtered water, and let them sit out on the counter overnight. In the morning, drain and rinse them before using.

    Hi Jess
    Can I use a banana instead of plantain?
    And do you mean coconut milk from a can or the kind sold in tetra paks?

    Hey Linda – yes I think banana would work. I’d go with one that’s more on the green-ish side. And you can use either type of coconut milk for these. Or a mixture.
