🔸1.5 cups spelt flour
🔸2 tsp baking powder
🔸1/2 tsp baking soda
🔸1/2 tsp salt
🔸2 tsp cinnamon
🔸1/2 tsp ground ginger
🔸1/4 cup desiccated coconut
🔸1 large banana mushed and 1 banana sliced in half for decoration
🔸1/4 cup coconut oil melted
🔸1/2 cup date syrup
🔸2 tsp vanilla extract
🔸1/2 cup non-dairy milk
🔸1/2 cup raisins
🔸1 large carrot grated
1. preheat oven to 170oc / 350of and oil a loaf tin (i used coconut oil)
2. in a large bowl combine the dry ingredients - flour through to coconut.
3. in a separate mixing bowl mix together all the wet ingredients - mushed banana through to non-dairy milk
4. pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined
5. add the carrot and the raisins and mix in
6. pour the batter into the loaf tin and place the two banana slices on top. bake in the oven for 45 - 50 minutes.
7. allow the loaf to cool slightly before transferring to a bread board and slicing. banana bread doesn’t last more than a few days so freeze half the loaf for the following week if desired.
Developing fine motor skills while playing with yummy food..
developing fine motor skills is essential in every child's life. fine motor skills involve the small muscles of the body that enable functions such as writing, grasping small objects, cutting with scissors, fastening clothing, etc.
For any mama's looking for quick and easy dinners for your toddlers this is one of my go to i would say at least once a week. my two and a half year old generally will demolish the entire bowl and it's good to know she is full, and also full of lots of good veggies.
what you'll need:
🐓half a chicken fillet
🍝half cup risoni pasta
chop chicken into small bite size pieces, cook in frypan with a little oil and a table spoon of flour. coat chicken in the flour and it will create a schnitzel type coating, cook till golden...chicken will be super tender on the inside 👌🏻 perfect for the littlies!
i always keep frozen peas and corn in the freezer, as well as chicken fillets to pull out for last minute meals. i've also got onto buying frozen spinage cubes, i used to buy it fresh but my daughter would always winge and pick it out. the frozen cubes are so finely chopped that it just blends through so she doesnt question it anymore. swipe across for the ones i buy, they are portioned so each cube is 1x serve of vegetables. we are all for the greens in this house! 🙌
in a p*t of boiling water, add the peas, corn and pasta. once cooked, drain and add to the fry pan of chicken and throw in a frozen spinage cube. stir in about 1/3 cup sour cream/cream and a sprinkle of cheese. easy peasy! 💁🏼♀️ will have a very similar consistency to risotto...
A quick & simple homemade mac & cheese. no cheese- just nutritional yeast, pepper & a teeny bit of curry powder (for something a little different). teo demolished it but harley did t like it (very unusual- but he hasn’t been well) so he had broccoli balls.... again 🙄
Bizcocho de plátano y limón. apto desde los #6meses.
receta: una taza de harina integral, 2 plátanos maduros, 1/4 taza de aove, 1/4 taza bebida vegetal más un chorrito extra, medio sobre de levadura, zumo de medio limón exprimido y la ralladura de media onza de chocolate 80% cacao (esto es opcional y a partir del año). delicioso! #sinhuevo#sinlacteos#sinazucar
