Almond Butter Pancakes


Must. must. must. try. 

These are so good. If your baby has a tree nut allergy, you can try sunflower butter OR peanut butter (if peanuts aren’t an issue).

If your baby has an egg allergy, add an extra half of a banana. OR use a flax egg (1 tbsp ground flax seeds + 3 tbsp warm water).

Fine 6 months+ (pending no allergies); makes 6 small or 3-4 large pancakes


  • 1 medium ripe banana, mashed/pureed
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp almond butter (plain, unsalted is preferred)
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour (or 1.5 tbsp all-purpose flour)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • coconut oil, butter, or ghee (for frying)


  1. Combine everything but the oil/butter. I used a food processor (specifically, the NutriBullet).
  2. Heat the oil/butter on low heat.
  3. Pour about 1 tbsp of the mixture at a time (for small pancakes).
  4. COVER the pan if possible! Flip after 4-5 minutes.

For the syrup:

I simply put 1 tbsp almond butter + 2 tsp pure maple syrup into a microwave-safe container, microwaved for around 1 minute, then stirred the mess out of it. And it turns these into heaven. Seriously.

    Thank you for this wonderful recipe. Can’t wait to try it!
    I have two questions:
    1) I’ve read that babies shouldn’t eat maple syrup (as well as honey) in their first year. You heat the syrup. Is it safe after heating (I know that honey is okay if baked etc.)?
    2) Have you tried to freeze them? I would love to have something on hand for stressful mornings.

      Hey there
      I’ve never heard that about maple syrup. I am nearly certain it’s ok but since it’s just the sauce, you can leave the sauce off for baby. It’s rather sweet anyway! Baby won’t know the difference.
      These should be great after the freezer!

        thank you for your answer!

        After doing a quick search I found this (my other resources are all in german) :

        Just wanted to share this information and will keep the sauce all to myself 🙂

    Thank you so much for this recipe! We tried it this morning and we all (myself, husband, and 7.5 mo daughter) loved them! This will definitely enter our regular breakfast rotation 🙂
