Feeding the Kids: Finger Food Pancakes

I am whipping up a batch of Sweet Potato and Apple pancakes for my little guy! They are yummy, I may not get many into the freezer. LOL

I am finding feeding him tougher now that he wants to feed himself…so all those pureed veggies in my freezer are being turned into pancakes or muffins so he can have them as finger food!

How do you get creative and frugal when feeding your children healthy options?

Sweet Potato & Apple Pancakes

  • 2 cups pureed cooked Sweet Potatoes
  • 1 peeled finely chopped Apple (I used Ida Red, you can use any slightly sweet & soft apple)
  • 2 cups Flour (rice flour OR Rice Cereal ground)
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 eggs (you can use yolks only if you choose for younger babes)

Add Milk to make it gooey ( Consistency should be able scoop spoonfuls easily into pan, but not runny.)

Mix all wet ingredients together and in separate bowl combine dry ingredients. Slowly fold in and the stir wet ingredients into dry.

Heat non stick fry pan on medium heat. Place batter by the spoonful into the pan and spread out a little. Remember these are for little ones, so don’t make them too big. Flip once browned and remove from pan. Just like regular pancakes!

Once cooked place on cooling rack and then in ziplock bags with parchment paper between each one (this allows for easy removal from freezer, one pancake at a time)

***I have also made these using Peas & Carrots. Really, the combinations are endless. I have a boy who does not want my from the farm pureed veggies that are neatly frozen for his meals! So, I decided this was a great way to give him finger food, and his veggies at the same time 🙂
