These pancakes are nutritious and make great finger food!

Here is a tasty breakfast or lunch for you and your baby when your baby is 1 year old.  It’s a tasty way to get your baby to eat veggies.  You can break it up into pieces for a great finger food. They also freeze really well; separate with parchment paper and wrap in plastic.  Take out a frozen pancake and pop it in the toaster to heat it up.

I use spelt flour because it absorbs better in the digestive system releasing nutrients quickly, you can easily replace it with whole wheat flour.  If you use spelt flour and the applesauce (instead of egg), you can give this to your 10 -month old baby.

Veggie Cheese Pancakes

½ C steamed mixed vegetables

¾ C cottage cheese (I use dry-pressed because it is drier, but you can use regular)

1 Egg (or ½ C applesauce)

½ C water

¾ C whole spelt flour

1 t baking powder

¼ t baking soda

A pinch of sea salt

1 Tbsp coconut oil (or olive oil)


In your mini-chopper, chop the vegetables into fine pieces.  Add the cottage cheese & combine further.

Put vegetables and cheese into a medium bowl and add egg (or applesauce) and water.  Mix well.

Add spelt flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.

Combine all ingredients until the flour is absorbed.

If the batter is too thick for your liking, add additional water by the tablespoon until you get the consistency you like.

Heat 1 Tbsp of coconut (or olive) oil in a frying pan until a sprinkle of water sizzles quickly.

Spoon batter into frying pan and cook until edges are light brown and tops of pancakes are bubbling.

Turn over pancakes and cook until bottom is brown.

Serve & Enjoy.

  • […] you can chop them up fine and offer them in soups and casseroles and savoury muffins and pancakes (like my veggie pancakes). If your baby is too young for the cheese & egg, try this Vegetable Pancake recipe from […]

    These look yummy.Would these be okay for a 1 year old who may be allergic to wheat and dairy?? Any substitute for cottage cheese?

      Hey Charlotte! The spelt flour may be okay for the wheat allergy. Have you tried spelt yet? You could also try brown rice flour. The flour is really just to help things stick together a bit. As for the cottage cheese. You could just leave it out and add 1/2 cup of non-dairy milk (almond, soy, rice) – then you have korean style vegetable pancakes 😉 without cheese. The cheese in here is just another way to add a bit of protein.
