Many mamas love giving their little ones cereal as a first food, but for Baby Led Weaning (BLW) babes you skip the purees and ditch the baby foods. If you still want to give your baby iron fortified cereal and want to try your hand at BLW, you can use your baby cereal in these pancakes. They freeze well on a sheet of wax paper, and can be taken out to defrost as needed - the pancakes also make great breakfast and snack options for older babies and toddlers. 


  • 1 cup flour (white or whole wheat)
  • 1 cup rice cereal (For Best Results we recommend Starter Rice Cereal)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • water until the right consistency


1. Mix all ingredients together, and add enough water to make pancake consistency.

2. Cook on frying pan just like regular pancakes, flipping when the bubbles form on the top. Cook until golden. We recommend cooking the pancakes just above medium and a tiny bit thicker than you would use for crepes.

These pancakes are a thicker and heavier pancake, not light and fluffy, but best of all Babies LOVE them!

OPTIONAL: For an added boost of nutrition, you can mash a banana into your pancake batter. Or try adding some halved raisins, blueberries, or chopped strawberries... You can even go the veggie route and cook them with chopped peppers, broccoli, or even by just smearing avocado on top!

Does it have to be rice cereal or can it be the oatmeal?

Any baby cereal works great with this recipe... However, if using oatmeal it may become thicker. I would suggest to add a little more liquid until you get the consistency you like.

I can't wait to try this recipe! I love how simple it is compared to other recipes I've seen for baby cereal pancakes. Thanks for sharing!

I've tried this a few times, with oatmeal cereal - finding it impossible to get them to cook through...

I have tried to make these pancakes with 3 different types of cereal combinations (just oat, rice & oat, and just rice) and I can not get them to set in the middle! I've tried cooking at different temperatures, I've tried with thicker batter, then thinner batter, then even thinner crepe like batter, and still mushy! What is your secret! I have a double batcheck of batter (less a few failed attempts) and I do t want to waste it :(

Brandi, I used Gerber Rice Cereal - the starter one. As for thickness don't go as thin as crepes, just a smidge thicker. Temperature I went with just above medium. I did find they are a thicker heavier pancake than most, not light and fluffy. Good luck with your next attempt! :)

Terrible recipe! It would NOT cook in the middle!! I tried adding more flour, oil, water/milk and even baking powder. Nothing worked. I have never had this happen to me. Now I have to go find something else for my hungry toddler :(

For those who have mentioned that the pancakes don't set in the middle, here's what I did because I didn't want as big of a batch:
- halved the recipe
- used about 3/4 c. water
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder

Used coconut oil over high med. heat and SMALL pancakes!

Hope that helps- it's a great recipe :)

Thanks for the tips Taren & Lizzie!
I have used Taren's tips and they turned out perfectly!
I want to try them with coconut oil next!

Dose anyone feel they are sweet enough? A normal pancake has a light sweetness to it. I tried one of the other recipes that called for apple juice and banana or a jar of baby food. I used baby food carrots and added a little cinnamon for a carrot cake taste and they were rubbery and tasted terrible. None of the light sweetness that you would expect from a normal pancake. Has anyone tried adding a tsp. of vital wheat gluten? I add that to all of my whole wheat baking and it makes the whole wheat baked goods soft.

To those complaining about them not setting....they are not going to - they don't have oil! Baking with applesauce or banana produces a mushier dense food. They are cooked. But if you want a real looking/tasting/fluffy pancake then use oil and baking powder and milk.... like a real pancake.

I was so excited to try this recipe and make pancakes for the babe this morning. Followed the recipe, even tried making them THIN like crepes and I still can't get them cooked through in the middle. What a waste of money of baby cereal and the formula I used to make these instead of just water.

Yay! My 9 mo old is protesting puréed foods, so this is a good way to use the iron fortified baby cereals. These turned out well for me by halving the recipe, 2 eggs, 1/2 tsp baking powder, and pouring one tablespoon full onto medium high griddle. I also smoothed the spoonful into about the size cutie orange so it would be thinner, almost a crepe thinness. Thanks for the recipe.

Some people, especially those running on busy daily schedules tend to use the pills to help maintain weight since they can not afford to follow all the diet programs. This is not advised. It is recommended that one seek advice from a professional in this field before using the pills. This can save one from many dangers associated with the misuse.

The diet pills should always be taken whole. Some people tend to divide the pills to serve a longer period of time. This is not advised and can lead to ineffectiveness. If it is required that one takes a complete tablet, it means that a certain amount of the ingredients are required to achieve the desired goal. It is also recommended that one does not crush the pill and dissolve it in beverages. Chemicals found in beverages have the potential of neutralizing the desired nutrients in the pill thereby leading to ineffectiveness. The best way to take the tablets is swallowing them whole with a glass of water.

The diet pills speed up the metabolic processes. This is the key factor that leads to the burning of all the fats in the body. This means that one passes out lots of urine, which subsequently leads to dehydration. It is imperative that the user take lots of water round the clock. This will help curb dehydration, which can lead to health problems. In addition to that, water offers the required medium for the function of the nutrients and elimination of the fats.

When buying the review of diet pills, it is imperative that one gets the most recommended dose. People tend to compromise the quality and effectiveness of the tablets due to the variation in cost. The low priced pills depict poor quality, which means their effectiveness is not reliable. Some have also been found to cause health problems. The dose should also be taken as recommended. Over dose will not speed up the process but rather lead to complication. This will increase risk of side effects. If the taking of the pill is forgotten, do not take more to compensate for the lost time.

The diet plan enclosed with the diet pills has also to be followed. According to the requirements, the termination of the diet must be done even with no results. This means your body is irresponsive.
