When I find time, little snippets here and there, I bake something baby-friendly for C.
I feel less guilty when we are out and about if he has a snack, as anyone who knows me well will confirm I am grouchy if I don’t eat often enough. There’s always something in my bag to keep me going , so it’s only fair for C to have the same, although there are always boobies…
This morning I threw these “snack bars” together pretty quickly with whatever I found in the cupboard – nothing fancy or complex.
makes approximately 9 bars
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
1 banana, mashed
1/2 teaspoon four spice (or cinnamon, ginger…)
1 cup shredded coconut
handful oats, blended a little if very large
handful sultanas, diced
handful dates, diced
1 teaspoon agave/maple/honey(if older than one) if desired. Still tasty without!
Mix ingredients together, spoon into muffin pan or loaf tin and bake for approximately 15 minutes at 170degC.
If made in a loaf tin, leave to cool before cutting into bars.
They smell really great, but I manage to save them for C (we have home-made doughnuts, shhh!).
