I’m now weaning Food Baby number two and am adjusting back to cooking recipes suitable for little mouths and tummies!
Packed full of fruit (and veg!) these oaty bars are firm enough to hold for little hands but soft and squishy making them perfect to eat too!
If you are avoiding gluten then ensure the oats are certified gluten-free. Otherwise this recipe is suitable for most dietary requirements, and perfect for baby weaning.
- 200g (gluten-free if required) oats
- 4 bananas, mashed with a fork
- 2 eating apples, peeled and grated
- 1 carrot, peeled and finely grated
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 180c and line a baking tray (I used a rectangular tray approx 11×5 inches) with parchment.
Step 2: Combine the five ingredients in a bowl.
Step 3: Tip the mixture on to the lined tray and use the back of the spoon to flatten and even out the top. Transfer to the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
Step 4: Remove from the oven and allow to cool fully in the tin, before cutting into approximately 20 bars.
Store in the fridge for a few days or freeze. For smaller hands slice each bar in half length ways to make them easier to hold.
