I concocted this recipe and I to find creative ways to make my baby eat eggs. I also found that it was a useful way to use leftovers fruits and fruit purees. LM loves bananas, but they have to be very ripe and she will often just take a bite or two. LM has also recently decided that she doesn’t like to drink milk, though we buy the wonderful local, organic cream-topped Strauss Creamery Milk for her. I can’t bear the though of wasting her leftovers, so I created these pancakes, which I make from these leftovers and to which I add any other leftover fruit/grain puree. The proportions are not accurate. I add pancake mix (I used Arrowhead Mills Organic Baking Mix).


2-3 ripe bananas

2 large organic eggs, beaten

2oz whole milk

Enough baking/pancake mix to make a thick batter

Optional: organic berries/leftover fruit puree

Butter/light oil for frying

What you do:

1. Mash the bananas.

2. Mix in the beaten eggs.

3. Stir in milk.

4. Stir in any fruit puree.

5. Stir in baking mix a spoonful at a time, until the batter is a bit thicker than heavy cream/double cream consistency.

6. Stir in berries (if using them).

4. Leave the batter to sit for 10 minutes.

5. Pour 1 tbsp oil and a small slice of butter into the bottom of a griddle or heavy-based frying pan.

6. Drop teaspoons of batter into the pan. Flip over when lightly browned. Pancakes should be soft in the middle.

7. Repeat until all the batter has been used up.
