Your Goblin Will Gobble Up Green Pea Pancakes!

Looking for a fun and super healthy recipe for your littles this Halloween? Look no further! This one passes the test for babies, toddlers and children of all ages – make lots because these are great for the whole family!

These pancakes are super easy and packed with all the green goodness from frozen peas. If you’re like me and are in the super fun (and messy) stage of feeding your little one food, this one is great to have on your list to batch cook and freeze for easy meals in the future. 

Frozen peas are one of my favourite ingredients. They are packed full of vitamin C and iron, an important combination for babies as vitamin C helps our bodies absorb iron from plants. They are also very affordable and can be easily added to meals from the freezer. If you are like me and going the baby-led weaning route of feeding babe, and they don’t quite have the pincer grasp nailed down yet to pick up peas, this is a great way to get all the nutritional goodness in them!

Bonus is these pancakes are green, so they double as a fun meal idea around Halloween this year!

Ingredients

1 cup frozen peas, cooked as per instructions on bag

2 eggs

½ cup cottage cheese

½ cup rolled oats

Directions

  1. Blend all ingredients in a food processor until smooth.
  2. Heat a pan on a medium to low heat, lightly greased with vegetable oil.
  3. Drop spoonfuls of mixture into pan. 
  4. Wait for bubbles to appear on the surface before flipping and cook until golden on both sides. 
  5. Enjoy!

I’ve made these a few different ways by adding garlic, green onion or scallions and some other herbs and spices like mint, coriander, and pepper. Feel free to be adventurous with these!
