Great Carrot Pancakes

If your toddler is not eating well, try this recipe!  It worked for my daughter-in-law, Rachael, and me last week!  Little Daniel packed them away!  There was no need for butter or syrup, and for children who refuse to eat vegetables, carrots or sweet potatoes, they can be sneaked into pancakes!  These pancakes were delicious (plain) and a great finger food.  If you have a large griddle, bake these in large quantity to freeze.  Then simply pop them in the toaster to heat them up. 

This is a revised recipe from the cookbook, Super Baby Food by Ruth Yaron.  It is more than a cookbook - has everything you need to know about making baby food, nutrition, food info and recipes.

1 beaten egg
1 cup carrot puree (Blend cooked carrots in blender with a little water)
2 Tbsp. honey
1/2 cup Super Flour (We used oat, millet, soy and whole wheat pastry flour, plus brewer's yeast for extra nutrition)
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Mix in bowl and cook on medium hot griddle.
