One For the Babies: Sweet Potato Pancakes

By now you know that if I discover something great, I'm going to share it with you, and so here is a find for all the new or soon to be mama's out there! My latest and greatest haunt is Nurture-Baby, an adorable site all about making your own baby food.

I know, you probably think I've got that area pretty much covered, I mean, how hard is it to make a puree, right? But since my kids are so frustratingly picky, I'm more than open to new mealtime suggestions and Nurture Baby has provided some fresh fodder for under the high chair!

Broken down into categories such as 'recipes', 'nutrition' and 'techniques', this site is a thorough resource for homemade baby food. I love how the recipes are categorized by the babies's age and guess what? the photos actually make the dishes look appetizing! Not easy to do when the subject is, hmm, brown mush!

Noah and Mateo gobbled up-and I mean inhaled-these Sweet Potato Pancakes.

We're pancake fiends around here, so I knew I had to try this recipe.
Thank goodness it makes a generous batch because they were sooo good! Think: pumpkin pie pancakes (psst! I think they should be renamed) thanks to the spices, sweet potato puree, brown sugar, and melted butter. Maple syrup complemented them wonderfully, but they really need no dressing up and were perfect finger food for Mateo.

Danny and I scarfed these pancakes for breakfast the next day, so this recipe is by no means just for little ones! I recommend thinning out the batter with an extra 1/4 cup of milk or so and cooking them on a medium-low heat to ensure they are cooked through.

Eager for another success, Noah and I baked up a batch of Banana Oatmeal Cookies and were rewarded with delicious soft cookies that we couldn't stop eating. Reminiscent of banana bread, these healthy cookies make a huge batch and are sure to please the somewhat critical playgroup gang.

I'll be recommending Nurture-Baby to all my friends with new little ones--maybe they will stop pestering me for those baby food tutorials!!

Helene said...

Thanks for the info. What a great pancake.

Cool site Aimee, I think Blaise and I will try the banana cookies this week.

Coleen's Recipes said...

The banana oatmeal cookies will be a big hit around here.

M. Housman said...

Thanks for sharing. I've been wanting to make Eli's baby food-maybe you've given me the nudge to do it!

Elyse said...

Oh my gosh! Those pancakes look divine. Like you, I'm a pancake fiend. I can't wait to try out some sweet potato pancakes for myself!

DolceBaci said...

Mmmm those pancakes look yummy!

Mama said...

Mmmm...just got some local maple syrup from the farmer's market this weekend too! I will have to give this a try!

Aimée said...

Emily said...

I'll spread the word to my sister Rachel and her kid. I think little Jayden would enjoy some sweet potato pancakes and oatmeal banana cookies. I would too!

Ingrid said...

Even with one of the twins food allergies I never thought to make my own babyfood, duh.

Onna said...

Wow! Those look Great!! I will definitely be trying that recipe out! I am always looking for great healthy recipes for my picky eater!!


CookiePie said...

Good to know for when our little one is big enough to eat pancakes! In the meantime, Mark and I would love them :) The cookies look delicious too!

Um, I have no baby, but I am going to be making these regardless. They look and sound fabulous!

Anonymous said...

i wonder if it could be made with butternut instead of sweet potatoes?

Kate said...

I once made chicken-and-white-chocolate cupcakes (!!!) in a desperate attempt to get my youngest to try chicken. Needless to say, it didn't work! As if to pay me back, one of his only words is, "Yuk". Great. Should we compare how much food is under our chairs?!

Aimée said...

Hi Emily- You bet he would!

Hi Ingrid- What? Well maybe for the next baby, eh?

Hi Onna- I hear you!

Hi CookiePie- That time will come faster than you can imagine...enjoy the infancy!

Hi Hilary- Enjoy!

Hi Kamana- I'm sure they could. I want to try pumpkin.

Hi Kate- Wow, those sound...interesting!

Coffee and Vanilla said...

They look absolutely gorgeous! And thank you for sharing link to the site with baby food... I wish I knew it earlier... now my daughter is almost 4 but maybe someday I will need it again :)


Deborah said...

Thank you for the link! I'll be venturing into the world of baby food in a few months, and definitely want to make my own.

Helen said...

These look great. Have to see if my 14 month old thinks the same.

By the way, the link in your blogpost isn't working... I found it by googling Nurture Baby. Maybe they've changed their address?

Journey Jewelry Debeers made the Rolex Replica Watches notion of Journey Jewellery a couple of decades ago but it took a while to catch on. Recently, Saint Laurent Outlet became 1 in the most popular diamond jewellery presents available. Journey Jewellery is established by using a assortment of diamonds growing in size from smallest to largest, these Louboutin Outlet Online symbolize the growth of love that men and women have for just one another. As your love grows so should your diamonds, at least that's what Debeers believes. Journey variations have been shown mostly in white gold set with Swiss Replica Watches princess or round diamonds. The thought is based loosely about the Previous, Present, & Future 3-stone jewellery that was also designed by Debeers, These charm bracelets make fantastic presents and most people invest in a single for themselves in addition as for good friends. The Replica Designer Handbags on the jewellery is the capability to make bracelets jointly with friends and family, as soon as created they appear incredible and very trendy.
