Baby Pancakes

For the last 2-3 weeks Emmett has been eating only solids.  No more purees in this house!  For the most part he just eats what we eat but there are occasions that I have to cook something different for him.

Breakfast has been tricky lately because he doesn't want to be fed oatmeal, I don't want his entire breakfast to consist entirely of Cheerios and he seems to need more than just fruit.

We got the okay to start Emmett on meat at his 6 month appointment from our Doctor.  Since he is very comfortable with chewing we were ready to slowly start introducing it into his diet. 

The first few times that he tried egg he wasn't a huge fan so we had to come up with ways to get it in.

Enter the Baby Boo Bear Pancake!

Emmett loves these!  Cut into fingers they are a great starter food.

Please make sure to consult with your Doctor prior to giving baby solid foods.  These are intended for babies that are comfortable with chewing motions and have tried all ingredients.

Baby Boo Bear Pancake

3 TBSP oatmeal cereal
2-3 TBSP formula or breast milk
1/2 mashed banana
1 egg yolk

Combine all ingredients in a bowl (you may need more or less liquid depending on the type of cereal you use or how big your banana was).

Heat frying pan to medium.  I used any olive oil mist because Emmett has not had any reaction to it.

Pour mixture into pan in pancake shape.

Cook like a pancake - they are ready to flip when batter bubbles.  Approximately 10 minutes.
We made 3 pancakes and Emmett will eat 1 per day.

They also freeze well!
