For years, I've wanted to make a baked food for breakfast for my new eaters (the under 9 month crowd). It was always a challenge to make something baked without eggs or dairy, which I usually introduce around 9 months of age. With all our allergies here, I have mastered cooking without those two ingredients now. Here's how I made baby cakes for my Wee One this morning.
Yield - 24 mini muffins
1 container Gerber 2nd Food Bananas
1 container Gerber 2nd Foods Carrots
2 tbsp. flax seed meal
2 tbsp. coconut oil
4 tbsp. water
Whisk together in a large bowl:
1 tbsp. Vance's Darifree **
1 cup Bisquick
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a non-stick mini-muffin pan with aerosol pan spray. Fold wet ingredients into the dry. Spoon into muffin pan (about 1 1/2 - 2 tsp). Bake approximately 6-8 minutes (until edges start to brown). These are naturally sweet from the bananas and carrots. No sweetener is required.
** This is a milk substitute that contains no dairy, soy, nuts, corn, gluten, rice. 1 Tbsp of Darifree powder contains the equivalent Vitamin D and Calcium of 1 cup of milk.
You could substitute some other milk or milk substitute (2 Tbsp) for the Darifree and 2 tbsp. water.
Feed the baby and freeze the rest.
