Today I decided to finally try my hands at some homemade finger food for Jacob. He is starting to be at that stage, and man is that crap pricey at the store! Not to mention all of the sugar and crazy list of ingredients. I knew I had seen some simple recipes using baby cereal on the internet so I sat down and picked one to try! I changed it just a pinch but the gist was the same.
Here is the link to the original recipe.
I did olive oil instead of coconut, and I added about a tbs of sugar. Mine didn't turn out so much as a dough like the recipe said--it was more of a batter that I spooned onto the parchment paper into an oval shape. Much quicker than rolling out and cutting to shape!
Baby was able to easily grab onto it and get it into his mouth. It softened very quickly and he didn't gag or cough once while eating it. Even big brother tasted it and approved!
These baked up very easily and I threw them into a ziploc baggie after they cooled to room temp. They should be good for several days since there is no egg or any thing perishable in them.
