Wee Eat Pancakes//3 ways

I usually rotate through the same dishes for breakfast and lunch for the kids. It’s just easier to have a few home-run recipes that I can cycle through instead of trying to figure out something new every meal of every day. Pancakes are always a winner at the breakfast table so I thought I’d share my three favorite recipes, ranging from extra healthy to extra delicious with you!

My friend Emily shared this banana oat pancake recipe with me a couple of years ago and it’s definitely one of our go-to recipes. I probably make it once a week because the pancakes are really sturdy which makes it an easy breakfast on the go option.

Banana Oat Pancakes

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 1/4 cups milk (or milk substitute)
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons flax seeds and/or 1 T. Hemp seeds (I use both)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (optional)
  1. pulse oats 15- 20 seconds in food processor to form oat flour.

  2. add remaining dry ingredients and pulse 15 seconds.

  3. add banana, milk, and egg. Pulse until smooth.
  4. let batter rest for 5 minutes to thicken.

  5. scoop batter onto lightly greased griddle, you may need to use a spoon to spread batter as it will be thick.
  6. cook for 2(ish) minutes and flip pancakes.

  7. serve with cream cheese, yogurt, or pure maple syrup

I found this recipe at Picky Palate when Hudson was around a year old. These taste much more like traditional pancakes but are bit healthier thanks to the whole wheat flour and flax seeds. I tend to leave out the honey with no complaints from the kitchen table.

Honey Wheat Pancakes

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3 Tablespoons ground flax seeds
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk (or milk substitute)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons of honey
  1. Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl.

  2. Wisk egg, vanilla and milk in a small bowl. Once mixed, add to dry ingredients.

  3. Add honey to batter and stir until fully incorporated.

  4. Spoon batter on to a greased pan or skillet, use your spoon to spread batter as it will be thick.
  5. Cook for two minutes and flip.

This is such a great pancake recipe and will for sure replace your bisquick addiction! I have to double the recipe to feed us all but it’s totally worth it. If you don’t have buttermilk on hand (which I never do), don’t forget about the vinegar trick.


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk or milk substitute
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  1. combine all dry ingredients.
  2. whisk milk, egg and oil and add to dry ingredients.
  3. spoon 2 tablespoons of batter on to a greased skillet, flip when underside is light brown (about 2 minutes).
  4. serve with syrup and fresh fruit.

Tell me your go-to breakfast for kids! I’m always on the hunt for another easy, healthy option.
