This morning while Margot was still sleeping I thought I’d clean out our corner cupboard because that thing is a hot mess. I found some rice cereal and some oatmeal cereal that we’ve had in there for a little while. She hasn’t eaten those in a long time, and now that she’s eating normal food I thought maybe I should just get rid of them.
I decided to see if there were any recipes I could use these in, and I’m glad I did because I found an awesome pancake recipe from Must Have Mom that uses both of them. Unfortunately I didn’t have all the ingredients for these to make this morning, so I slightly adapted it so my daughter could eat pancakes when she woke up.
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 cup rice cereal
- 1/2 cup oatmeal cereal
- 2 cup formula, breastmilk or cow’s milk (if baby is over 12 months old)
- 1 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
- 2 egg yolks
- Additional milk to thin batter
- Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl until combined.
- Add additional milk, formula or breastmilk to thin batter as needed until you reach pancake batter consistency.
- Pour batter onto hot griddle and cook until bottom side is golden brown. Flip and cook for only about 30 seconds to 1 minute and remove pancake from griddle onto a plate.
- Top with bananas and strawberries (cut up if needed for baby/toddler)
I used the batter to make six pancakes. I gave one to my daughter, and saved the other five. This will allow us to use the pancakes all week long! The original recipe says that the pancakes freeze well if you chose to save them for longer periods of time.
When I use this again I will take the advice from the original recipe to use pureed food as toppings as well to give it a little more flavor.
