Ingredients for Easy Spinach Banana Baby Pancakes
- Rolled Oats - I use certified gluten free rolled oats but you can use whatever oats that you prefer. Make sure to measure 1 cup of oats before adding it to the blender. Blend on high until the oats create a flour-like texture.
- Egg - This recipe calls for only one egg. I have not tested it using a flax egg so I can’t comment on if it works as a substitute or not. Feel free to try and comment below on how it turned out for you.
- Spinach - There is 1 cup of spinach per batch of pancakes. The spinach gives these pancakes a fun green color and a nutritional boost.
- Banana - The more ripe the banana, the more sweet these pancakes will taste. I recommend using a banana that is ripe and has some brown spots on the outside.
- Milk - You can make this recipe using whatever type of milk you have on hand. I usually use unsweetened almond milk.
- Cinnamon - Ground cinnamon adds a little more flavor without being overwhelming for the kids.
- Baking Powder - To help give a bit of rise to these pancakes.
How to Make Spinach Banana Baby Pancakes
First, add the oats to the blender and pulse on high until a flour-like texture forms. Then add the spinach and pulse a few more times until blended with the oats.
Add the egg, banana, milk, cinnamon and baking powder to the blender. Blend until smooth.
Pour about 1-2 tbsp of batter into a warm greased skillet for each pancake. Let cook until bubbles form on the surface and then flip to cook through. Continue with the rest of the batter.
Serve cooled pancakes or freeze for later.
