Made with wholesome ingredients like rolled oats and fresh apples, these pancakes are not only delicious but also packed with essential nutrients. In this post, we’ll explore why these pancakes are perfect for toddlers, provide step-by-step instructions on how to make them, and share tips for storing any leftovers.

Why Apple Oat Pancakes Are Great for Toddlers

  1. Nutrient-Rich: Rolled oats provide a good source of fiber, while apples offer vitamins and natural sweetness, making these pancakes a balanced and nutritious breakfast.
  2. Easy to Customize: You can personalize these pancakes by adding your toddler’s favorite toppings, such as a drizzle of peanut butter, a sprinkle of cinnamon, or a dollop of yogurt.
  3. Quick and Simple: This recipe is straightforward and quick to prepare, making it a convenient choice for busy mornings.


  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 apple (peeling optional), sliced into cubes
  • 3/4 cups milk (use your choice of dairy or dairy-free milk)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Prepare the Apples: Start by preparing the apple. You can choose to peel it if you prefer, or leave it. Slice the apple into small cubes.
  2. Blend the Oats: In a blender or food processor, add the rolled oats and blend until you achieve a fine powder-like consistency.
  3. Combine Ingredients: Add the rest of the ingredients into the blender and blend until completely smooth!
  4. Cook the Pancakes: Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Lightly grease it with cooking spray. Pour a ladleful of pancake batter onto the skillet to form small pancakes. Use the back of the ladle to spread the batter into a round shape.
  5. Cook on Both Sides: Cook the pancakes for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and cooked through. Flip them gently using a spatula.
  6. Serve: Once done, transfer the pancakes to a plate.


If you have any leftover Apple Oat Pancakes, here are some storage tips:

  • Refrigeration: Place the pancakes in an airtight container and store them in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days.
  • Freezing: To enjoy them later, store them in a freezer-safe bag. They can be frozen for up to 2-3 months. Reheat in the microwave for about 15 seconds.
