A couple of weeks ago I posted a Baby Puff recipe that was pretty filling. It also required a bit of chewing (with gums at least, teeth not required). In fact, they were really more snacks than they were your traditional puff.
Sometimes you want a snack that isn’t going to ruin your baby’s dinner. Or maybe you want a puff that melts in your mouth like the store-bought puffs. Here’s a recipe that will dissolve in your mouth and not fill you up:
Melty Puffs (adapted from Mommy-Opinion)
- 2 C multi-grain baby cereal
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 tbs coconut oil
- 1/2 C apple sauce
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Optional additions: 1 tbs Berry Superfood Powder, 1 tbs cocoa powder, or 2 tbs nutella or cookie butter
Mix all ingredients together to form a dough. One handful at a time, roll dough into long, pencil sized ropes and cut into bite-sized pieces.
Bake at 325F until they begin to brown. They will be soft, not dried out.
Store at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the refrigerator for longer.
*Try not to eat all of these yourself and save some for baby!
