I've mentioned in the past that I've been spending a little more time in the kitchen since Violet began weaning. I'm always looking for new recipes and ideas to try out, especially things that can be made in batches and stored for a few days. We're huge fans of finger-shaped foods or anything that easy for V to get a good hold on. Particularly things like sweet potato wedges, slices of mango, porridge fingers etc.
This week I got a little more creative and found this recipe from a lovely American lady on a Facebook group for BLW peanut butter 'cookies'. They were so easy and cheap to make, that I really wanted to share the recipe and hopefully inspire some Mamas to get in the kitchen!
1/2 Cup of Oats
3 Tbsp Peanut Butter
Step 1. Mash the banana in the mixing bowl - I usually squeeze the banana in the skin then peel and drop it in the bowl. Very ripe bananas work best.
Step 2. Crack your egg in with the banana and give it a good mix.
Step 3. Add your peanut butter and mix.
Step 4. Pour in your oats and mix together to create a cookie dough-like texture. Depending on the size of the oats, you may need a little more/less.
Step 5. Finally spoon out tablespoon sized portions onto the baking tray and pat down with a spoon.
Pop them in the over on 180 degrees Celsius for 8-10 minutes, and voila!
I portion them into two's and pop them in the fridge for the next few days. I tend to go with the 3 day rule and use them up within this time. They're great for a super speedy breakfast or to pop in your bag for a healthy on the go snack. They have my little miss' approval too, so they can't be half bad.
Let me know if you try these!
