Top 4 tips to encourage spoon feeding during weaning

Blueberry Oaty Bars – perfect for breakfast, lunch or snacks, you can switch around the fruit element for whatever is in season or your little one prefers.


65g porridge oats

100g plain flour

1/2tsp baking powder

½ tsp vanilla extract

65g coconut oil

60g almond butter

1 mashed banana

2 tbsp maple syrup

80g blueberries*


Preheat the oven to 180c fan

Melt the coconut oil and almond butter together, and mash the banana

Add all your ingredients except the blueberries to a bowl then mix thoroughly to combine

Stir through the blueberries

Line a flat bottom baking tin with grease proof paper (I used a 7inch x 7inch baking tin)

Add the mixture to the baking tin and press down flat with the back of a spoon

Bake at 180c fan for 25 minutes

Leave to cool before attempting to slice into bars or squares!

Serve with yoghurt and fruit

Suitable for babies from 6 months old

Suitable for vegans

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days

*Always make sure blueberries are squished flat or cut into tiny pieces for younger babies to avoid a choking hazard
