These Easy Blender Spinach Pancakes are a great way to get spinach into baby and toddler.

Ingredients 

  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats, see notes
  • 1 cup spinach, packed
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 egg or flax egg
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice, regular, coconut, almond, hemp, etc
  • 2 tablespoon oil, coconut or olive
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions 

  • Blend Oats: In a blender, place the oats and pulse on medium speed for 30 seconds or until oats are a chunky flour consistency. You will blend them all the way up in the next step, so the oats don’t have to be perfectly even right now.

  • Add Ingredients: Add in the spinach, banana, egg, milk, oil, cinnamon and vanilla extract and blend on high for 30-60 seconds or until batter is completely smooth and the spinach is completely broken down, scraping down the sides of the blender if needed.

  • Cook: Heat a non-stick pan or pancake griddle over medium to medium-low heat. Pour 2-3 tablespoons of batter onto the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes or until tiny bubbles appear on the outside of the pancake. Flip and cook for an additional 2 minutes. If batter gets too thick, add in a tablespoon at a time of milk and re-blend until you have the right consistency.
  • Continue: Transfer pancakes to a cooling rack and repeat the process until you have used all of the batter.
  • Serve and Enjoy!

Notes

Age: 6 months and up
Yield: 10 small pancakes
Notes on Oats: I recommend you use old-fashioned oats as they blend really nicely into flour. If you are gluten-free, make sure you use oats that are labeled as gluten-free. Where oats themselves do not contain gluten, the packaging processing uses the same equipment as wheat. 
Freezer-Friendly: store any extra pancakes in the fridge for 1 week or in the freezer for up to 2 months. To re-heat, simply place the frozen pancake in the microwave for 30 seconds or pop them straight into the toaster.
