Peach Oat Pancakes and Waffles

These Peach Oat Pancakes are great for babies and toddlers as they don’t contain added sugar. Plus, they are packed with healthy ingredients such as fruits and oats. They are flavorful, light, and fluffy, and I’m pretty sure your whole family will enjoy these pancakes, not just the little ones.

For this recipe, do not use old-fashioned rolled oats. Use unflavored instant oats such as Nature’s Path Quick Cook Instant Oats. Honestly, I’m not too fond of old-fashioned rolled oats in pancakes, cookies, and waffles. It might be a personal thing, but their rough texture feels a bit rubbery to me- something I’m not looking for in fluffy pancakes. Instant oats will completely soften during cooking and result in fluffy pancakes.

I created this recipe in collaboration with Grabease, baby and toddler feeding gears. Since my eldest was a little tot, we’ve been fans of Grabease baby utensils, and now Grabease has a full range of great feeding gears. Click this link and use code “WHITEBLANKSPACE” for 15% discount.

How to turn Peach Oat Pancakes into crispy waffles.

When I turned my pancake recipe into waffles, I was surprised at how fast the waffles turned soft and limp. Most waffles will eventually turn soft after a while, but the crispiness didn’t even last from the waffle iron to the table. So I did some research, and after several tests, I learned a few tricks on making crispy waffles.

If you like soft waffles, you can use the pancake recipe and simply cook in a waffle iron. But, if you want waffles that are crispy outside and light inside, here are a few tricks.

  • Sugar and Oil help waffles to turn out crispy outside. Sugar helps caramelize the exterior and get them crispy and stay crisp for longer.
  • Get the waffle iron hot. Cooking longer in lower heat will result in soggy waffles. You want the waffle iron to almost “fry” the waffles. I check for doneness when there is no visible steam coming out of my waffle iron.
  • Finish in an air-fryer or oven. To crisp up the waffles, even more, air fry for 1~3 minutes at 400F (check every minute) or lay them on a wire rack and place it in a 250F oven for 5 minutes.

If you are going for the healthiest version, I would say stick to pancakes. But my kids are particularly fond of waffles and would gladly eat a similar recipe turned into waffles while they push away pancakes.

Since these pancakes and waffles are already sweet, you can serve them with softened butter and fruits as topping. Of course, an extra drizzle of maple syrup won’t hurt either.
