Two ingredient pancakes with fruit sticks

This recipe can be put together in just a few minutes and will satisfy all of the kids in the house. The big kids might even be able to start making it independently. Wondering if your baby is ready for raw fruits? Cutting the fruits into thin, straw-like sticks makes them easy for babies to pick up and at least begin to gnaw on them. Eventually, they can take their own, safe bites.


  • 1 banana
  • 1 egg
  • fruit cut into strips some suggestions include apples, mango, banana, strawberries, and watermelon
  • 1 pinch cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsps whole wheat flour or gluten free flour optional. This will create more of the traditional pancake texture, but I suggest omitting while trying during baby led weaning because the pancake might not be as soft.


  • Mash the banana with the back of a fork in a bowl.
  • Whisk in the egg until smooth (and flour, if you are adding).
  • Cook on a heated non-stick skillet or griddle. Make the pancake size of your choice. Children love little silver dollar sized pancakes.
  • Flip the pancake once it starts to bubble and the edges brown a little.
  • Peel the fruit and cut into matchstick-size pieces. Toss the sticks with cinnamon.
  • Plate the cooked pancakes and fruit. Enjoy!


Make sure that your baby is not allergic to eggs before serving him this recipe. Maple syrup for serving is ok for the little kids when served in moderation, but I would avoid adding maple syrup to the baby’s pancakes.
