Here is a super simple pancake recipe that is baby friendly and approved!! Actually the whole family will love them!
Oatmeal and Millet Pancakes
- 1.5 cups oatmeal
- 1 cup millet*
- 1 banana
- 2.5 cups water
- * can use brown rice, quinoa, corn meal or amaranth instead of millet
Blend all ingredients in a vitamix or high speed blender. Use coconut oil in a large skillet or stainless steel pan and cook on one side until the edges look slightly dry and then flip over and cook the other side. Since these are blended they do have a nice light texture, but without the leavening agent they are not super fluffy. They are kind of like a crepe and pancake combo. Very good with fresh fruit and can even top with maple syrup. This recipe makes 15-18 pancakes that are medium sized.
These raw and good for you cookies are a snap to make in your food processor. No waiting time to bake or let cool, just blend up and form into balls and done!!! They are a great treat or even a filling snack when you are on the go. Even our 14 month old daughter Jade loves them too!
Hemp Hazelnut Power Cookies (yield: 1 dozen)
- 1 cup oats
- 2 TBS hempseeds
- 1/2 cup hazelnuts (I blended them into a meal first)
- 1/4 cup raisins
- 5-7 medjool dates
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 TBS coconut oil
- super tiny pinch of sea salt
I blended the dry ingredients first just to make sure they were a smaller size our toddler wouldn’t choke on, but you can just blend them all at once for a more chunky consistency. Then after blending the dry ingredients I added the others to the food processor. When it is done it is still pretty crumbly, but you know it is the right consistency when you can form into balls, makes a dozen almost golf-ball sized cookies.
