Amaranth Breakfast Cookies
My three year old, Sydney, loved the amaranth breakfast cookies. Probably because I said we were having cookies for breakfast!
What's not to love?
I made these spur of the moment, I wanted to find a way to give my daughter peanut butter and also allow her to feed herself, as the porridge was bit messy.
Amaranth applesauce porridge
When starting solids with my 6 month old, we decided to do a mix of baby led weaning and purees, but my daughter has no interest in being spoon fed. Instead, I offered her a preloaded spoon with the goodness of my amaranth applesauce porridge.
Amaranth Oat Balls
Super easy to make and baby girl loved feeding herself.
