These easy oatmeal pancakes are the perfect healthy snack for children. Plus they’re super, super easy to make! My son, who’s 2 years old (today! btw.) really loves them and he’s always thrilled when they are served to him after a long day at daycare. Which happens to be quite often, as oatmeal is something we eat almost every day. Well, he does, I (the foodblogger) likes to switch between the morning breakfast classics a bit!
Easy oatmeal pancakes with only 1-ingredient
The best thing about these pancakes is that they literally only consists of 1 ingredient. And when I say one I mean oatmeal, which I know consists of more than one ingredient, but you get my point right? It’s so, so easy. You just make an oldschool oatmeal, maybe add some mashed banana for sweetness, serve it for the child, and use the leftovers for some pancake magic
The remaining oatmeal is formed into little pancakes on a baking sheet and 15 minutes later you have the perfect wholegrain snack for your child and maybe even yourself. I also enjoy these, especially when they are layered with almond butter!
