One of the best things that we got for my daughter (so far) has to be the learning tower we have for her in the kitchen. She’s able to be at the same level as the counter-top and she can “help” with cooking. So far, she’s just been present while I cut up meat and peel veggies, and usually just samples the veggies as they’re getting chopped up. Today, we decided to make some cookies together!
Autumn used to be really into the mixed fruit and veggie pouches, but lately she hasn’t been so interested in them. The other day, we attempted to give her one and she ate none of it. I thought it might be nice to make cookies out of it so then I can give them to Aiden, too. I wanted to find a cookie recipe that didn’t have any sugar, and I found one here! This recipe I am about to share is an adaptation of the recipe from food.com.
This recipe is egg-free, flour-free, and sugar-free! I like that it’s egg-free because it means that Autumn can help me and I don’t have to watch her like a hawk to make sure she doesn’t sample the cookies before they go in the oven.
2 ripe bananas
1/3 cup your favourite fruit and veggie pouch (we used a Love Child Organics one made with apples, pumpkin, raisins and cinnamon, but you can pick whatever kind you like/have around)
2 cups oats
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 350* and prepare pans with parchment paper.
- Mash bananas
- Mix in the rest of the ingredients with the mashed bananas
- Spoon batter onto the pans. Bake for approximately 15 minutes.
- Let cool on pan and enjoy!
These cookies were incredibly easy to make, and my toddler said “num” as soon as she tasted a bite and kept asking for more, so she really likes them. I am also comfortable giving them to my 7 month old because they’re made with all good things.
She LOVED helping make the cookies, and waiting for them to be done.
