We are gearing up for Memorial Day weekend!! I can’t believe it’s almost the end of May. It’s crazy to think that school will be getting out and Summer will be here. Where does the time go?!
I am happy to have sunshine for our Memorial Day weekend and to have a friend in town visiting. I’m sure my kids will keep her heavily entertained, exhausted and on her toes 😉 She’s a teacher so she’s used to kids right?! I feel mine are far more exhausting, but that’s probably what every mom thinks.
So these little banana drops are delicious, and actually a recipe I made specifically for little man, but as with everything in our house, R has to have it too. And to be honest, I couldn’t stop eating these either. My son was the worse eater when it came to solids. I tried my homemade pureed foods, then I did the baby lead weaning letting him explore new flavors and foods, but nothing. He wouldn’t eat anything for months, just exclusively nursing. I then decided to just go against my rule of no fruits until around 8 months, and I tried fruits. Still nothing.
So I decided to make a cookie for babies. Something soft enough for him to chew or suck on, but also something that was sugar free, only natural sugars and simple, with few ingredients. Thus the reason for these easy 3 ingredient cookies, which are more the size of droppings. Turns out they are pretty tasty and it’s hard not to eat the entire batch myself. All you will need is :
- Ripe bananas (spotting)
- Unsweetened shredded coconut flakes
- oats (gluten free)
I suggest waiting until baby is able to moosh bigger foods around 8-9 months, unless they have more teeth than the typically 6 month old. L was just about 7 1/2 months when I made these. He now eats more and more, but prefers adult food, none of that baby stuff. Good thing these “baby cookies” are enjoyed by mom and dad, and yes R too. The only problem is baby servings are far to small for this hungry mamma. 😉
Something simple and easy to make for the kids for after school snacks, or for baby’s breakfast, and you don’t have to worry about additives and processed sugars. Natural sugar and simple ingredients only in these tasty drops. Best part, besides them being healthy, is they took 5 minutes to prep & 10 minutes in the oven. It’s blender to oven to mouth.
*Best stored in the refrigerator.
- 2 ripe bananas (spotting)
- ¾ c unsweetened shredded coconut
- ½ c oats (gluten free)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line cookie sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease.
- Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth (can have small, small chunks).
- Scoop little drops onto prepared cookie sheet & bake 10-15 minutes, until edges lightly browned.
- Store in refrigerator.

I hope you all have a great Memorial Day weekend. A day to thank all of those who have served our country and are still serving, and to mainly honor and remember those who have died serving our country in the ultimate sacrifice. Our freedoms are owed to those fallen soldiers, and to those who continue to safeguard them.
Until Next Time Be Whole and Be Fit
