Is your little one self-feeding? Here’s a balanced and nutrient dense staple to include in your infant and toddler’s diet.


1 Medium ripe banana, mashed
3 Tbsp. Iron-fortified infant oat cereal
1/8 tsp. Ground cinnamon


1. Separate the egg white and yolk into two small mixing bowls.
2. Mix the mashed banana, cereal and cinnamon with the egg yolk.
3. Whisk the egg white vigorously until its foamy, before folding into the rest of the mixture.
4. Heat an eco-friendly non-stick pan over low-medium heat and lightly coat with preferred cooking oil, such as avocado oil.
5. Add 2 Tbsp. of batter at a time to the pan to form pancakes. Cover the pancakes and cook for 1-2 minutes. Once bubbles being forming, flip the pancake. 
6. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook an additional 2 minutes.
7. Let cool before serving to your child, or before storing in the refrigerator. These can be stored for up to 4 days in the fridge or up to 3 months in the freezer.
