Before we discuss all about this baby-friendly sweet omelette, if you want more breakfast inspiration for you and your little ones, make sure that you check my breakfast recipes. So, let’s get into cooking.

What you will need

  • Eggs. I like to use organic pasture-raised eggs as I think that the animals getting treated the way that they have to be treated.
  • Banana. Traditionally sweet omelettes are getting sweetened with sugar or syrup. I wanted to keep this baby-friendly and I decided to naturally sweeten with a banana. Make sure that your banana is ripe enough as we will not add any other sweetener on this recipe.
  • Almond Butter. You can use any nut butter that you like or even seed butter if you want to keep this nut-free.
  • Cinnamon. This is maybe my favorite spice and I love to add cinnamon on my baking and cooking. Did you know that cinnamon is loaded with antioxidants and it has anti-inflammatory properties? Another great excuse to use it more often in your dishes!

How I served it

I kept it simple! On our bamboo eco-friendly Bubba Boo plates, I served this sweet omelette along with strawberries and cucumber, cut into flower shapes using my cute veggie cutters. Along I served a serving of Greek yogurt topped with hemp seeds.

How to store

This sweet omelette is best right out from the pan, while it is still warm. If you manage to have leftovers, you can always store it in an airtight container up to two days in your fridge. They freeze beautifully too, so you can store them in pieces in a freezer bag lying flat. Just defrost for a couple of hours in your fridge or in your microwave for a quick breakfast.

Tips for the perfect sweet omelette

  • Make sure that you use a non-stick pan. This is a very delicate omelette and it is crucial to use a non-stick pan so it does not stick.
  • Grease your pan. You can use avocado oil, coconut oil or ghee to grease your pan. Make sure that you spread your oil with a brush in the whole pan so your sweet omelette does not stick.
  • Cook over low to medium heat. The temperature is very important to ensure that your omelette will be cooked evenly. If the temperature is too high then the center of your omelette will be undercooked, while the edges will be overcooked. So keep the temperature low to medium. My stove top setting goes from 1 to 9 and I cooked the sweet omelette on 3-4.
  • Cover the sweet omelette. Yes! Trust me on this one, you need to cover the omelette after you place the batter on your pan. This way you will help the hot air to circulate inside your pan and cook it evenly.
  • Turn the omelette gently. You can try turning the omelette with a silicon spatula. However that the best trick is to use a plate that fits just enough on your pan to turn the omelette. I have found that this method works the best so you don’t break the omelette and it remains fluffy. That said, even you break your sweet omelette, it is not the end of the world. It is still delicious and I’m sure that you, your baby and your toddler will love it.
