Baby Led Weaning Recipe: Beetroot Pancakes
A simple and delicious baby led weaning recipe which creates healthy pancakes for babies using beetroot.
  1. Chop the cooked beetroot and place it in a blender with a dash of milk. Blend until a purée forms.
  2. Pour the beetroot purée into a bowl and add 60g plain flour and crack two eggs into the bowl. Combine with a fork until a batter forms. Add more milk to make the consistency right: it should be quite runny.
  3. Heat a frying pan on medium heat and oil the pan using Frylight or coconut oil. Spoon the batter into the pan. I used pancake shapes but if you don’t have these, a heaped tablespoon of batter will make a small pancake perfect for tiny fingers. You should be able to cook three or four pancakes at a time.
  4. Once the batter starts taking shape and you can see tiny bubbles, flip the pancake to cook the other side.
  5. Once cooked, leave the pancakes to cool while you cook the rest.
  6. Serve as is or for older kids sprinkle with a little icing sugar or maple syrup.
