Ah pancakes! We love pancakes here and they can be so versitile as you can pretty much put in anything you like and they still turn out yummy!
People often talk about hidden vegetables in food but what about hidden fruits? If I don’t turn apples into smoothie or compote Lilbro would not eat them raw. At least he’s still not that far despite he’s chewing pretty much anything and everything! So one way to include apple in his food is to grate them and add to pancake batter.
Both Bigbro and Lilbro wolfed them down pretty quickly and I was kind of surprised as I sort of expected the worse. haha!
I would serve these to babies 9m+ as they contain dates as sweetener if omit then they are OK for babies 7-8m+ due to dairy. I would personally wait with dates until 12m+ even as sweetener.
PS. That’s my portion in the first pic, served with pomegranates and a cup of cappuccino. 😋
1 cup flour of your choice
2 -3 medjool dates (cut & soaked in hot water for 5 mins) – omit for younger babies
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 organic egg, separated
2 Pink Lady apples (peeled & grated)
150 ml semi-skimmed milk
1 tsp vanilla powder /extract
1 tsp cinnamon powder
Oil or spray for cooking
1. Place the dates and milk in a high power blender and blitz until smooth.
2. Place flour, vanilla, cinnamon baking powder milk mixture and egg YOLK in a bowl and whisk. In a separate bowl, use an electric whisk to whisk the egg white until fluffy
3. Grate the apples using large holes in grater. Add the grated apples to the batter then lightly fold in the egg white.
4. Heat a large pan with a drop of oil and place 1- 2 tablespoons of batter in the pan on low heat. When the bubbles appear, turn the pancakes over and allow to cook until both sides are done.
