Can you change the ingredients in this cookie recipe?

If you want a sweeter cookie, you can add chocolate chips, blueberries or crushed raspberries to give them an extra kick.

If your baby has an egg allergy you can replace the gg with a flax egg. I haven’t tried this myself (1tbsp flaxmeal + 2.5 tbsp water) for this particular recipe, so do let me know in the comments if it works for you.

Can you freeze these peanut butter cookies for babies?

I have to say I have not attempted it – they are usually all eaten up before I’ve had the opportunity to try! So do let me know in the comments if freezing works for these cookies…and if you do try to freeze them, be sure to let them fully defrost before offering them to your baby.

These banana and peanut butter oat baby led weaning cookies are delicious, soft, and healthy. Perfect for babies and adults alike!


  • 1 banana
  • 60g rolled oats
  • 3 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • handful of blueberries (optional)


    1. Preheat oven to 180C
    2. In a bowl, mash a banana with a fork. Crack in an egg and combine. Add in the oats and stir together. Finally, add the peanut butter and mix until a sticky dough is formed. Stir in some blueberries for an extra taste sensation.
    3. Line a baking tray with grease proof paper and dollop tablespoons of the mixture on to it. Flatten each dollop with the back of your spoon and shape into circles.
    4. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Cook for longer if you want a crispier cookie, but 12 minutes will suffice for a soft cookie suitable for BLW.
    5. Leave to cool for at least 15 minutes before consuming.

    Never mind the babies I like the sound of these for myself. I am rubbish at eating breakfast and these would be perfect.

  2. 3rd January 2017 / 4:27 pm

    Yes they are delicious. My husband ate most of them this morning so i’ll have to whip up another batch for Dex to store in the freezer ๐Ÿ˜›

    Good idea – we’re always left with scabby bananas, just made some banana bread with ours but these cookies would have been perfect! Ahh well, I’ll do them with next weeks leftover banana!

    I’d probably eat these myself too! Great recipe ๐Ÿ™‚ ox

    Ooh these sound perfect for my two – although I think we’ll struggle to have any left over bananas haha. Will definitely give them a go ๐Ÿ™‚ x

    Oh they look nice. You’re making me hungry. Must give them a try.

  8. 5th January 2017 / 9:27 pm

    oh my goodness these look delicious! I’m also looking for new foods to give logan too so we definitely have to try these, last time I gave him a little egg, he had a very slight reaction so should be safe to introduce it soon. These also look so easy, I’m pretty crap in the kitchen but I’d definitely make these! ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

    I baked these with my 20 month-old granddaughter. She loved stirring it all together and helping to put the cookies on the pan. Sometimes I whip up a batch before I go visit her. Grandma gets to give her a worry free treat and the leftovers make her snack for the rest of the week, which is a help to my daughter. A big win for everyone.

    I made these, they’re great! I used chia seed instead of egg (1 tbsp chia seed with 3 tbsp water, mixed and left for 5 minutes to form a gel) and this worked well. I also made them small (my 10-month-old never eats very much) so each cookie was about a teaspoonful of mixture. I got 21 cookies out of this mix, and baked them for only 9 minutes.
