Toddler Savory Pancakes

Savory pancakes are a great meal or snack for toddlers, and they are pretty quick and easy to make. They're also really adaptable - if you've run out of something, experiment with different combinations!
I usually make these with half chickpea flour. It contains protein and creates a nice texture. This recipe makes quite a few as I usually make a large batch and freeze them. If you only want enough for 1 meal, use only 1/4 of the ingredients.


100g Plain Flour
100g Chickpea Flour
1 Cup Alpro Junior Milk
1/2 Carton Silken Tofu (or 1/2 cup cooked red split lentils)
1 Tsp Ground Flax Seed (It's a good source of Omega 3, Iron & Calcium)
1 Grated Carrot
1 Cup of Leafy Greens (Spinach is ideal)
1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
Pinch of Cumin (optional)

In a large mixing bowl combine the two flours, then slowly add the milk whilst mixing to create a batter.
I usually just crumble the tofu and mix it in well, but you could give it a whiz in a food processor before adding if you wanted to 'disguise' it.
Add the carrot, flax seed, greens, baking powder & cumin and combine well.
Warm a little oil in a large flat pan and cook batter for a few minutes on each side until golden brown. I make mine in small circles so they're easy for toddler hands, but you could also make them larger and cut them up.
