Life is pretty crazy these days. I can’t believe my book will be on the shelves on less than a month! I am on a countdown now and I think it will probably seem a bit more real when I can actually hold it in my hands and smell it and read every page with beady eyes. My life has been this book for two years and I have put so much love into it that I hope you all love it as much as I do.
I have been so beyond lucky to have so many amazing followers and both mothers and fathers who have made so many of my baby led weaning recipes. I really didn’t expect the reaction Baby Led Feeding has received over the past few years and it is growing every day from strength to strength. I constantly challenge myself to come up with more nutritious recipes that your little ones will enjoy, some of which have come to me at crazy hours of the morning and woken me up from sleep – my sweet potatoes chocolate truffles lol 🙂
This recipe is a take on the yummy jammie dodgers we would have eaten as children. I wanted to make a treat for Oscar that would not only say ‘I love you too’ but would be nourishing and delicious! If your looking for a super sweet treat, then these probably won’t rock your boat as they taste more healthy than sweet. But! for babies and small children they are ideal!
The sugar breakdown of these cookies is 36.3g in 12 cookies | 3g in each one which is really minimal. I used a mixture of coconut flour but you can use plain and buckwheat or just plain on its own and they still taste good. The coconut flour makes them a little crumbly so use a little extra water to bind the dough together.
My kids loved these and as far as cookies go I’m pretty happy for them to eat these in replacement of normal cookies. They taste deliciously fruity with a hint of nuttyness and are perfect as a healthy baby led weaning recipe for little hands.
I can’t wait to show you all my book and I promise I will take lots of photos the minute I get my hands on a copy. In the meantime if you would like to pre-order your copy you can do so on Amazon right now 🙂
Wishing you all a deliciously, healthy and very lovely Valentines Day.
All our love,
Aileen & Oscar xoxoxo
