Homemade Baby Food Recipes – Pure as babies

Pumpkin Waffles by Weelicious

Ok, you all know how I feel about pumpkin. We love it in oatmeal and soup, Little K still loves it as a puree. Catherine at Weelicious posted a recipe for Pumpkin Waffles which of course I had to try. Delicious! They are indeed as good as they look in the photo. I served them for breakfast and K was hooked. She asked for them again at dinner and I used Catherine’s suggestion of making a sandwich. I sliced one waffle in two and made a sandwich using about a tablespoon of cream cheese and thinly sliced apples.These would also be fantastic as finger food or a snack for younger, self feeding babies (torn into small pieces, of course).

Great recipe, I’ll definitely be making a batch to freeze for quick, healthy meals.

Baked Cheesey Bites

As with many of the foods I make, I love the variety that many of them provide. Try substituting different types of cheeses for the Cheddar, such as Parmesan, or Monterey Jack.

Ingredients:

  • 8 oz (1/2 pound) shredded mild Cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 5 tbs softened butter
  • 1 tbs parsley or chives (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Combine all ingredients in large mixing bowl, mix well
  2. Cover dough tightly and refrigerate for one hour
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  4. Roll out dough to about 1/2 inch thickness
  5. Use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes, or for younger babies, slice through dough with a knife to make bite-sized finger foods (about the size of Cheerios)
  6. Place bites on parchment paper covered baking sheet
  7. Bake for about 18-20 minutes, depending on size of bites. Bites should be golden brown
  8. Allow to cool, and store in an airtight container
