Baby Led Weaning Peanut Butter Cookies | Healthy Cookies for Babies

Share this post with your friends!

This recipe came to me one morning when I was thinking of what to do with a very ripe and lonely old banana in my fruit bowl. Since publishing this baby led weaning peanut butter cookies recipe, it has become one of my most popular blog posts – Mums just love the super simple healthy cookies for babies recipe!

How many calories are in these baby led weaning cookies?

These baby led weaning peanut butter oat cookies are delicious, soft, and healthy. I didn’t add any sugar to sweeten them and they definitely don’t need it. They come in at 73-76 calories per cookie, so they’re also a great addition to a lunchbox as a healthy snack. This recipe makes nine cookies, but you can just double the quantities to make more.

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.

What do my family think of these baby led weaning peanut butter cookies?

The first time I made these BLW cookies, I let my husband try them before offering to them to Dex. Let’s just say Dex was lucky there were any left for him to have for breakfast!

These cookies are soft on the inside and are extremely moreish!

Baby Led Weaning Peanut Butter Cookies

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.

Just wanted to say that these are my daughter's FAVORITE cookies. I've been making them since 8 months (she's 15 months now) and she always gobbles them up. They freeze great and she loves them with raspberries and blueberries on top.

Hi Linda, thanks so much for your kind comment. So glad to hear your daughter loves them :)

Thank you for this simple, delicious recipe! It is a hit with my one year old, he is gobbling them up with zero hesitation. I've also enjoyed 1 or 2 (or 3, haha) myself!

I made these, and my baby LOVED them. Just curious how to store them. In the fridge or can they be left out? I assume the egg ingredient means they should be stored in the drive…?
