  1. Separate the egg white and yolk into two small mixing bowls.

  2. Mix the mashed banana, cereal and cinnamon with the egg yolk.

  3. Whisk the egg white vigorously until it is foamy, before folding into the rest of the mixture.

  4. Heat an eco-friendly non-stick pan over low-medium heat and lightly coat with preferred cooking oil, such as avocado oil.

  5. Add 2 tbsp of batter at a time to the pan to form pancakes. Cover the pancakes and cook for 1-2 minutes. Once bubbles begin forming, flip the pancake. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook an additional 2 minutes.

  6. Let cool before serving to your child, or before storing in the refrigerator up to 4 days or freezer up to 3 months.


  • 1 Large egg
  • 1 medium ripe banana, mashed
  • 3 Tbsp Iron-fortified infant oat cereal
  • 1/8 tsp Ground cinnamon

To ensure food safety, eggs should be cooked until both the yolk and the white are firm. Consuming raw or undercooked eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially for those with certain medical conditions. For recipes that call for eggs that are raw or undercooked when the dish is served, use either pasteurized shell eggs that have been treated to destroy Salmonella, or use pasteurized egg products.
