Baby Cookies

So, my almost 7 month old (WHAT??!!!) is almost refusing to eat her baby food. She is more interested in eating what we are eating. Going from eating 2-3 jars baby food at night, oatmeal in the morning, and a jar at lunch down to almost nothing is killing this nursing momma! So, I have been giving her some of what we are eating. Scrambled eggs, avocados, soft onions and mushrooms, and lots of puffs and teething cookies! No problems.



But what do I do with the baby food? (I still try to feed her some, but don't force her when she doesn't eat...)

I have put some of the veggies in spaghetti, used some of the oatmeal and rice cereal in fried chicken recipes, but today, I am craving cookies!



I have adapted this recipe into a vegan recipe that both babies and toddlers will love! And it is so easy, I was able to wear my fussy, teething, clingy baby while making them.




Oatmeal Raisin Cookies (For toddlers and moms!)



3/4 cup baby rice cereal


1/2 cup flour


1/2 teaspoons baking soda


1 teaspoon cinnamon


1/4 teaspoon salt


1/4 cup brown sugar


1 cup apple sauce


1 jar banana baby food


1 jar sweet potato (or carrots) baby food


1/2-1 cup oatmeal baby cereal


1 package raisins





I just mixed all the ingredients, put on a cookie sheet, and baked at 350 for around 15 minutes. These cookies will be soft in the middle, even after cooling, unless you make them thin.

















Oatmeal Cookies for Baby



1 cup rice cereal


1/2 cup flour


1 cup applesauce


1 jar banana


1 jar sweet potato/carrots


1/2 cup oatmeal





Mix ingredients, cook as above. (14-20 min @350).












Again, these cookies are pretty soft and chewy. They seemed to get softer in baby's mouth when she was eating, and she did not have any trouble with choking. Some babies, however, might have a problem, so don't leave your baby alone with them!










She seems to have liked them!
