Millet Flour Pancakes Recipe Step by Step

Millet flour pancakes that are gluten free and also toddler friendly, a big hit from my recent experiments to please the 1 year old in the house who has been on primarily Indian food and textures for a while.

Millet Flour Pancakes Recipe Step by Step

It has been a personal goal for me to try and include different flours (both from grains and seeds) into our diets, including for LilS. She has so far been a champ in terms of her food habits – her appetite is not big but she will try anything. Wonder who she takes after with that, haha.

While we stuck to mostly Indian food for the first 6 months after introducing solids to LilS, I started trying new toddler-friendly soon after she turned a year old.

These pancakes were born out of one such experiment.

They were received really well, I am happy to say.

These millet flour pancakes:

  • are spongy and soft
  • retain the softness for a good while after they have been made
  • are perfect for self-feeding, if you follow baby-led weaning
  • don’t take very long to make at all! A bonus for busy moms

  • A pinch of salt

Notes

You can combine different flours for a different flavoured and textured pancake – like whole wheat flour, oat flour, etc

You can cook the pancakes in regular oil as well, instead of butter

Note that I started LilS on cow’s milk soon after she turned one. If you are breastfeeding or still on formula, substitute milk in the recipe with a nut milk of choice

For adults, serve with maple syrup and fruits
