Very Healthy, Very Fruity Pancake Recipes

We LOVE pancakes.

They’re simple, quick, tasty and you can eat them for breakfast, lunch or tea.

These recipes became our favourites when we were baby-led weaning Travis and they’re still firm favourites today.


I always make our pancakes really healthy by packing them full of fruit; Travis loves his fruit. If you give him the choice between an apple and a muffin, he’ll take the apple every time.

The batter recipe we use is thicker than normal pancake batter. This makes the pancakes thicker and smaller, making them ideal for little fingers!

Banana & blueberry pancakes

135g flour (plain or self raising)
1 large egg
150ml full-fat milk
1 large banana
100g blueberries
1-2 tbsp unsalted butter for frying

Banapple & cinnamon pancakes

135g flour (plain or rising)
1 large egg
150ml full-fat milk
1 large banana
1 apple
1 tsp cinnamon
12 tbsp unsalted butter for frying

My personal method

(The batter recipe is the same for both of the above recipes):
Put the flour in a mixing bowl and create a well in the middle. In another bowl, whisk the egg. Add the milk to the egg gradually, mixing together well. Pour the egg-milk combo into the middle of the flour, whisk in the middle and slowly work your way outwards, gradually mixing in more flour until completely whisked and smooth. Peel and mash the banana in the same bowl you whisked the egg – saves on washing 😉 Mix the banana into the batter.
Depending on which fruit you’re adding; Add the blueberries, or grate and add the apple (skin too!) and cinnamon. Mix chosen ingredients together well.
Melt the butter into a frying pan. When hot, spoon the batter into the pan and cook for a couple minutes on each side. Serve with more fruit.

    This is the first I’ve heard of putting the fruit into the batter before cooking, I am definitely going to try these. Thanks for the idea xx
