Quick porridge fingers

These were a nice breakfast for baby. An adult wouldn’t like them though! The main thing was to remember to put the oats to soak early enough.

3 level tbsp oats

3 tbsp milk

I used a proper table spoon measure for this. 

Soak the oats in the milk in a bowl

Press down into the bowl

Microwave on high for 2 mins

Cut into fingers and serve when cool. Baby liked these

Baby carrot cake

Another baby-led weaning recipe, sugar-free carrot cake. It’s not very cakey but I actually think this is really delicious and would make it just for myself! It comes from the baby-led weaning cookbook.

200g wholemeal flour

3 tsp baking powder

110g dates, finely chopped

50g ground almonds

50g dessicated coconut

3 tsp ground mixed spice

110g melted butter

110g sultanas

1 large carrot, grated

Grated zest of 1 orange

2 tbsp orange juice

2 eggs

Put flour and baking powder in a bowl

Add the dates, coconut, nuts and spices

Mix thoroughly

Combine the butter, sultanas, carrot, orange zest and juice

Add to the dry ingredients

Combine to make a thick paste

Beat the eggs and add them

Spoon into a cake tin and bake for 45-50 mins. Check with a skewer that it comes out clean

This froze well so I could give it to baby in portions

Eggy bread

Did this for mark for breakfast to share with panther. She’s going through a bad food phase and pretty much refused to eat it, even dipped in ketchup. He seemed to quite like it. Very unhealthy so not great for me on my diet 😦 got the recipe/ idea from the baby led weaning cookbook… Seemed to think 2 eggs would do 4 slices but mine only did 2. Also seemed to think 1 adult and 1 baby could eat 4 slices between them!

2-3 slices bread

2 eggs

Milk (optional, makes it go further)

Could add herbs or spices to the egg, or sprinkle on top at the end

Beat the eggs and milk, and potentially spices, in a bowl

Drench each slice of bread and fry in oil (I used proper oil, not spray)

Serve cut into fingers and dipped in ketchup of you’re fussy!

Savoury flapjacks

Another one I haven’t actually made… This is a weaning recipe we tried at bumps and babies and it was yummy so definitely piña to make it for mark and panther. It comes from a baby-led weaning cookbook and the ones we had included carrot. Pretty sure I will halve this and make it in a loaf tin as this would make way too many and you can’t freeze them becausethey contain oats.

100g butter

300g porridge oats

350g grated cheese!!!

2 eggs, beaten

Optional

Add 200-300g grated  eg, eg. Carrot, courgette, onion, sweet potato, swede, parsnip

Melt butter over low heat

Add the rest of the ingredients to the pan off the heat and mix well

Press the mixture into a greased lined tin… This amount in a Swiss roll tin should be 1cm thick

Bake for 20 mins until golden brown

Cool for 5 mins then slice

These were really yummy… However they are nice and nutritious for babies and kids, but not great for adults as they’re full of fat! So be careful you don’t eat them all!!!
