This Banana Prune Oatmeal Bake is perfect for kiddos with tons of nutrients, and it is easy for babies to chew if doing baby led weaning!

Last week I wanted to prep some food for Ruthie to have on hand throughout the week and tried out an oatmeal bake!  I had brown bananas so I knew I wanted to add those and when I serve her bananas I usually also give her some prunes to balance out the constipating nature of bananas in babies.  So I chopped some up and added them in and voila – we have Ruthie’s new favorite snack! I love having a pre-made snack/ breakfast on hand for her because she is a hungry little girl.  The fun thing about these oatmeal bakes is that you can totally personalize them for you or your kiddo!  Add chocolate chips to make it a treat or add some nut butter and freeze dried strawberries for a pb&j.

I also added in chia seeds and flax meal to up the good omegas and nutrition.  It can be so easy to add stuff like that into kiddos food and they never know the difference.  I plan on sharing more recipes like this that you can prep on Sunday and have on hand for kiddos all week because DANG these kids keep us moving.  Now that Ruth is crawling she is all over the place and when she’s hungry she is HUNGRY! So having stuff like this in the fridge or pantry is crucial.

If your kiddo doesn’t like the consistency of the prune, you can blend the banana and prunes together in a blender before adding them to the mix!

    Just put this in the oven to bake. 6:45am here on the east coast and couldn’t sleep (3rd trimester insomnia ) but excited to see how they come out. I just realized I forgot the egg!

    I took some liberties with the original recipe and it still came out fantastic! Half-ed the recipe (I have a 4 year old with autism and a 2 year old that’s leaning hard into her “no” stage so I have some notoriously picky eaters and didn’t want too many leftovers if things didn’t go well), still used one egg, doubled the prunes, used apple sauce instead of bananas and tossed in some Herseys cinnamon chips for added pizzazz. It came out pretty soft but still holds a bar shape well enough to grab and go!!
