These pancakes are simple, but delicious! And with a creative touch, an exciting treat for babies and toddlers. We like to keep our pancakes sugar free with just the natural flavour and sweetness coming from the bananas.


3 Bananas
1 cup self-raising flour
1/2 cup of milk
1 egg


For the batter
  • Start by slicing one banana and put it aside.
  • Blend the remaining two bananas until it resembles a creamy liquid.
  • Beat an egg in a mixing bowl and add the blended bananas.
  • Stir in the milk and flour until all ingredients have combined into a smooth batter.
To cook
  • Heat up your frying pan and melt a knob of butter whilst agitating it around the pan to cover the surface completely.
  • Using a large spoon or ladle, pour approximately 2 tablespoons worth of batter onto the frying pan. This will make a bitesize pancake. Pour more batter if you would like larger pancakes.
  • When you can see the bottom of the pancake has cooked, and while the top is still uncooked, place a slice of banana into the centre of the pancake and gently press it in.*
  • Wait until you can see air bubbles forming on top of the pancake, then flip it over to cook the other side. This should not take long so be sure to keep an eye on the pancake and check soon after flipping to see if it looks cooked the other side.

*This is the creative touch!

To Serve
  • My personal favourite is to serve as a stack, as pictured above.
  • To add a little moisture, I layer the pancakes with natural greek yogurt in between. Beware, this gets messy once the little one gets hold of it!
