Nutritious Baby Bars

I was having a difficult time finding a recipe for homemade baked goods for Norah that didn't have sugar, gluten or any unnecessary ingredients, so I decided to come up with my own! These bars are jam packed with iron, omegas, antioxidants, fiber and so much more good stuff. They're perfect to hand to Norah and let her walk around snacking on, because they're neither crumbly nor sticky, just perfectly chewy. I even enjoy these myself, hot out of the oven with a layer of almond butter on top... mmm. 


  • 2 cups ground oats
  • 3 large super ripe mashed bananas
  • 1 tsp blackstrap molasses
  • 1 Tbsp hemp mylk
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 c wild blueberries

Flax Egg

  • 1 Tbsp ground flax
  • 3 Tbsp water


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 and line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper

    Make the flax egg; mix together the ground flax and water in a small bowl and set aside

    In a medium bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork and add molasses, cinnamon and flax egg

    Add the ground oats (I grind mine in my vitamix. The younger the child, the finer the grind)

    Stir in the wild blueberries (you can substitute for finely chopped strawberries or leave the berries out all together)

    Press evenly into the pan and bake for 8-10 minutes

    Let cool slightly then serve to your little one - enjoy hot for yourself with almond butter or jam!
