Our baby is quickly becoming a little man. When people say kids grow up so fast, I didn't realize this fast. He's beginning to eat table foods now and boy, can he eat. I'm constantly trying to think of new things to feed him these days.
We had a nice, lazy Sunday yesterday. Gary and I decided to stay in and whip up some breakfast (more like brunch). And when I was pulling out ingredients to start some pancakes, I realized I can adjust a few things to make it baby friendly. I read it is not recommended to give babies under one years old egg whites, milk, and butter. So, I substituted milk for yogurt (which Austin's been eating for a couple months now) and applesauce for butter. As for the egg, I simply separated the egg white and yolk (only using the yolk). I cut the pancakes into strips so he can easily hold them.
pancakes for babies
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 tbsp applesauce
- 1 tbsp yogurt
- first mix the dry ingredients together. then add the wet. mix until combined.
- pour half the batter into a lightly greased non-stick pan over low-medium heat.
- cook for 5 minutes or until you can flip the pancake over. cook the other side for another 5-10 minutes or until golden.
- cook the rest of the batter same as above.
Here he is thoroughly enjoying pancakes for the first time.
