Apple Oatmeal Baby Cereal Pancakes #FridayFrivolity

Happy Eat What You Want Day, everyone. Today for Friday Frivolity we are celebrating food and I’m going to share with you a way to utilize baby cereal in a fun new way. If you are anything like me then you have tons of baby cereal laying around the house leftover from when your little ones were even littler. They get a couple teeth and start to refuse their cereal so you end up with a bunch of containers and no way to use them. Baby cereal pancakes are a great way to utilize those leftovers. Children who like to feed themselves can snack on these and still get all the healthy benefits from the cereal inside.

apple oatmeal baby cereal pancakes


1.5 cups all purpose flour
1.25 cups non-dairy milk (we use soy)
1 cup baby oatmeal cereal
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 egg
2 dashes cinnamon
Oil or nonstick spray for frying

Apple Oatmeal Pancakes with #babycereal are perfect finger food for little ones. #weaning Click To Tweet

1. Combine all your ingredients until well incorporated. The batter should be thick. Don’t worry about getting all the lumps out.

2. Heat up your pan on medium-low heat with oil or nonstick spray of your choice. I used a butter spray for our pancakes.

3. Use a tablespoon to drop the batter into the pan. The batter should be thick enough that they don’t spread much. This will give you silver dollar sized pancakes, perfect for little hands.

4. Flip when one side is golden and cook the other side until it gets nice color.



The pancakes will come out very moist inside because of the applesauce. They don’t “dry out” inside like traditional pancakes.

This recipe makes a huge batch so I recommend freezing some for make ahead baby meals. Let the pancakes cool completely and then put them into a freezer safe bag in your freezer.

You can also add vanilla extract or nutmeg to them before cooking for a different flavor. My daughter loves them with just cinnamon though.

What are some fun things you’ve done with leftover baby cereal?
