As a Mom with a 9-month old I've been on the lookout for baby and mommy approved finger foods with extra points awarded for low mess snacks. After some experimenting in the kitchen I have to say these Spinach Banana Baby Pancakes are awesome! My lil man loves them, they're soft, nutrient dense and free from sugar and salt. If your little one doesn't eat the whole batch in one sitting, refrigerate or freeze the leftovers.
Last night we had dinner at this fun outdoor venue. Lil man enjoyed his pancakes and entertained himself with his food the entire meal.
