Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Oat Muffins BLW [7m+] & Toddlers

image

Providing you are fine to give peanut to your babies and no dairy allergy then I would say these are suitable from 7 months old babies. If you are unsure about giving nuts then omit peanut butter as they will still turn out super delicious!

These wheatfree and refinedsugarfree healthy oat muffins are very easy to make, so moist, fluffy and sooooo delicious! A perfect and healthy energy boost afternoon snack or breakfast for toddlers and adults! 😋 Both myself and my 3 years old son absolutely love them! I’m baking a lot of chocolate muffins lately and this is all because he’s requested them! 😄 My little chocolate monster! Haha.

Served 12 mini and 4 large muffins.

Ingredients

*Large bowl
🍌1 cup oat flour
🍌1 tsp baking soda
🍌1/2 tsp baking powder
🍌1/4 cup raw cacao powder
🍌1/4 tsp salt

*Medium bowl
🍌4 ripe medium bananas
🍌1/2 cup peanut butter (slightly runny, warm it up if not) – omit if allergic!
🍌2 eggs
🍌1/4 cup natural yogurt ( I used Greek yoghurt)
🍌1/4 cup coconut / olive oil (I used coconut oil)
🍌2 tbsp maple syrup
🍌1 tsp vanilla extract / powder
🍌A handful of chocolate chips (optional and omit for babies under 12m old )

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C.
    Grease muffin cups or a muffin form using coconut / olive oil.
  2. In a large bowl, mix in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cacao and salt.
  3. In a medium bowl, mash 4 bananas with a fork. Add the peanut butter, oil, maple syrup, yogurt, vanilla and egg. Stir until combined. Do not over mash the bananas.
  4. Fold the banana mixture in to the large bowl and gently mix, add the chocolate chips last and mix until combined. Dristribute the batter into the muffin or loaf form. Bake for 25-35 minutes in muffin forms or 50-55 mins in a loaf form.
  5. Leave the muffins in the forms for 5 minutes and then remove them and place on a wire rack. Serve warm or cold. 😋😋😋

Strawberry Banana Ice-pops [8-10m+] & Toddler

image

After the big storm comes the sun! It’s time for ice-pop again. Strawberries are now in season. Yay! 😋 Strawberry & banana puree was lilbro’s favourite fruit puree as a baby. So yummy for little teething babies / toddlers . 👍 Sometimes simple is the best! 🙂

Strawberries are packed with B and C vitamins! A treat for babies at least 8 months old, strawberries are so simple to blend. You can make luscious strawberry puree or smoothie with almost any fruits!
Since strawberries are part of the “dirty dozen” foods with the highest pesticide residue, it’s a good idea to buy organic.

If your baby has chronic eczema or a food allergy, talk to the doctor first before introducing strawberries.

Ingredients

🍓A handful of strawberries
🍓1 ripe banana

Method

Blend everything together and use a table spoon to fill up the mould and freeze. The rest can drink as smoothie.
