Watermelon Pancakes

Watermelon Pancakes
I loooove making new variations of pancakes! You only need three basic ingredients to make a pancake - a flour-like substance, a liquid, and something to make it all stick together. I'm always experimenting with new ingredients, and this time I decided to try out pureed watermelon as the liquid - which is good news for kids with dairy intolerance, because these are delicious!

My 3yo and 1yo boys ADORED them! They are both big watermelon fans, so they might be a teensy bit biased... But I bet your toddlers will love these quick and simple watermelon pancakes too!

These watermelon pancakes only need three basic ingredients and they take just minutes to put together. They make a fantastic breakfast, lunch or snack. You can cool them down and wrap them for healthy lunchbox snacks as well.


  • 1 cup chopped watermelon
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup wholemeal self raising flour


Blend watermelon into a puree using a blender or stick mixer.

Whisk egg and watermelon together in a bowl.

Add flour and mix to combine.

Heat a little butter or olive oil in a frying pan on medium heat.

Drop spoonfuls of the pancake mixture into the pan to form little round pancakes.

Cook until craters are beginning to form in the top of the pancakes and the bottom has turned golden brown.

Flip pancakes over and cook until the other side is golden brown as well.

Can be served warm or cold.

If not eating immediately, cool the pancakes to room temperature and them store them in the fridge in an airtight container for a few days.

To freeze, wrap cooled pancakes in plastic wrap then store in a freezer bag/container.
