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

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
1 large carrot, grated
Grated zest of 1 orange
2 tbsp orange juice
Put flour and baking powder in a bowl
Add the dates, coconut, nuts and spices
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

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
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!
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.
300g porridge oats
350g grated cheese!!!
2 eggs, beaten
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!!!
