Baby Led Weaning Spinach Pancakes

We are now on our third week of weaning baby Felix and I’m pleased to say it’s getting a lot easier! After a couple of weeks of him being totally disinterested in food, I’ve now got a baby who is willing to try anything and I’m now in my element in the kitchen!

I am a huge fan of baby led weaning pancakes as I think they’re such an easy food to prepare and make and super versatile too. With Dexter we tried sweet potato pancakes, banana pancakes, beetroot pancakes, baked pancakes and good old scotch pancakes. These days at three years old, he’s more of a fan of chocolate pancakes, but the baby is not quite that lucky…he’s stuck with spinach pancakes! But guess what, they actually taste yummy and I bet nobody would even guess there’s spinach in them, apart from the colour!

Baby led weaning spinach pancakes are so quick and simple to make and only require ingredients you’ve got stocked in your fridge/cupboard. They take less than five minutes to prepare and a few minutes each to cook. As usual I like to batch make a few so I’ve got a few left for tomorrow, but usually they all end up getting eaten anyway! They’re that delicious!

Let me know if you try these baby led weaning spinach pancakes and what baby thought of them. Felix demolished a whole one within ten minutes and started banging on the high chair for more! Word of warning though, these are messy! I really should have thought harder about dressing him in white before offering him these yummy pancakes. Oops!

Instructions
  1. Add 60ml of milk and a handful of spinach to a blender and blend until green and thin.
  2. In a bowl add flour, the green milk and one egg, then whisk until the batter is formed.
  3. Grease a frying pan (I used oil spray) and pour half of the batter into the pan, letting it spread out
  4. After a couple of minutes, tilt the pan and if it’s ready to flip, the pancake will move freely. Either flip it or turn it over with a spatula. Cook the other side for two minutes.
  5. Do the same again with the remaining batter and leave pancakes to cool fully before serving to baby.

    Hello, if I make a batch of these ahead of time can I freeze them or store them in the fridge for a certain number of days? Thanks!

    Hi Rebecca,

    I have done this before and warmed them back up at a later date, but I’ll be honest, they taste much better when prepared fresh! It would be ok to make them in the morning or the night before and store them in the fridge for 8-12 hours, but any longer than this and they go a bit chewy! Hope that helps 🙂
