One of the things that I find really hard about teaching Calista to feed herself is vegetables. How am I supposed to feed her spinach and romaine and other leafy greens? Broccoli falls apart and she can't do Brussel sprouts. There are only so many green beans the girl can eat. Anyway, I decided to take my Baby Pancake recipe and tweak it to make Veggie Pancakes.
We love our Beechnut jars because they don't have any extras or preservatives. I usually grab the spinach, zucchini, and peas, but today this is what I had.
***Also, check out Big Lots for $.50/jar. Seriously. I also use ibotta when they have coupons for Kroger and can get them as low as $.58. (No, this is lot a sponsored post, just a budget conscious mama.)
This recipe came about on a day where my 10 month old really wanted to feed herself! Yay! I would love to say my child always wants to feed herself a lá baby led weaning, but she likes me to feed her most days. So, needless to say, I didn't have a bunch of veggies lying around, hence the jar food veggie pancakes I whipped up.
I know some moms will argue that I don't need to be so specific about what Calista eats, but this health-conscious mama doesn't have her baby on supplements, which means I have to make sure her food is nutrient dense, specifically iron, hence spinach.
Okay, okay, the recipe. 😉
2 jars of veggies (Generally Beechnut)
1 cup of gluten free oat flour (Oatmeal pulsed in a food processor 😘)
3 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup cashew milk
1 tbsp grass fed butter (Love Kerrygold)
2 tbsp coconut oil (I use unrefined, organic)
1. Melt coconut oil and butter together.
2. Combine dry ingredients.
3. Add baby food and wet ingredients, stir.
4. Cool like regular pancakes. 2-3 minutes on each side.
I dare you to not eat them yourself. 😍
