These sweet potato pancakes for baby are quick and easy to make and perfectly soft and fluffy. Great for toddlers too, they are freezer friendly and full of healthy ingredients.


  • 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour (see notes)
  • 1/4 cup sweet potato puree (see notes)
  • 1/4 cup small curd cottage cheese, or full-fat Greek yogurt (see notes)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • cooking spray or oil


  • In a medium bowl, add in all of the ingredients and stir until combined. If using cottage cheese, the batter will have chunks in it.

Yield: 12-14 small pancakes
Served With: I served these pancakes with a side of plain full-fat yogurt and a small amount of frozen and thawed and then mashed berries.
Storage: store in an air-tight container in the fridge for 5 days or in the freezer for up to 2 months. 
Note on Flour: you can use whole wheat, white whole wheat, all-purpose or gluten-free flour. 
Note on Sweet Potato Puree: you can use homemade or store-bought sweet potato puree or cooked and mashed sweet potatoes. 
Note on Cottage Cheese: you can use full-fat small curd cottage cheese or full-fat Greek yogurt in these pancakes. Either work great!
