Homemade, allergy-free, super easy, 4-ingredient, nutrient packed baby finger snacks!
Soon after starting baby foods with Tabitha and Charlotte, I started giving them those little puffs and cheerios. I always loved the convenience of puffs and cheerios. They are easy to pack. You can keep a stash in your diaper bag. And they create little mess. But they are nutrition-lacking-tummy-fillers-that-often-begin-the-cycle-of-bad-snack-habits-and-ruin-mealtimes…at least in my case. ;)
So what is a Mama to do but make her own baby snacks. And here they are:
Don’t they look like little cookie dough balls?
They hold together pretty darn well so they really are a great little finger food. Charlotte loves them too! Tabitha is not interested in baby-food. Ha!
I love love love that these little morsels are packed, no no…jam-packed with healthy goodness! Check out these lovely healthful ingredients…
Homemade Baby Finger Snacks
1 Tbsp coconut flour
1 Tbsp ground chia seeds
1 Tbsp fruit or veggie puree (I used apple sauce and sweet potato. Pumpkin, butternut squash, and carrot would be great options)
1 Tbsp sunflower seed butter
1. Preheat oven to 350* (I just used my toaster oven).
2. Mix together all ingredients in a small bowl.
3. Roll into little baby bite-size balls and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Alternatively, you can roll out the dough to make crackers. That saves you a bit of time for sure.
4. Bake 10 minutes and then turn off the oven keeping them in there until they feel pretty hard and start to brown a little. Allow to cool completely to set.
Makes about 1/2 cup and I am sure this could be easily doubled or tripled. Store in an air-tight container in a cool place. Keeps for 3-5 days.
