Banana and raisins Oatbars

The first step of seeing if J had outgrew his banana allergy ,was to let him eat something with cooked banana in it. My mum found a recipe that she used and J loved them . He hasn’t reacted to the banana so I have made some more to build up the amount of banana he is eating.

I couldn’t remember the recipe my mum used exactly.
I used;
3 bananas
3 eggs
Some sugar (apparently the first batch didn’t and they were not that great)

Bunged them all into a mixing bowl,blended together.

Then I added in porridge oats until it was at the consistency I wanted.
J helped me blend the mixture and he wanted to add random things that were on the kitchen unit . Sweeteners coffee etc. I gave him the mixed fruit/raisins and he quiet happily put them into the mixture.

Then once the raisins had been stirred into the mixture , I put the mixture into a ovenproof container. I baked at 180 for around 20/30 minutes. Once cooled cut into sections.
I am pleased to say J, the fussy toddler, absolutely loved them. He even stole mine off me .

I’m sure this could be adapted to gluten free by using gluten free oats . Possible egg free using a egg replacer.
I love cooking with J as he seems to like it. I also believe even at this young age I am teaching him something for the future. It also helps me start cooking more . Now that J can tolerate baked dairy it has opened up so much more we can do cooking wise.

    It’s good to hear that J is outgrowing his allergies. These look delicious! I’m definitely going to make them with my boys as soon as the bananas are ripe. Thanks for the recipe 🙂 #LittleChefs
