Nutritious Banana-Oatmeal Cookies

for 11 months and older

Ingredients

1 cup enriched all-purpose flour (you can use unbleached or cracked wheat flour for more nutrition)
teaspoon baking soda
teaspoon ground cinnamon* (you should leave this out until your baby is 12 months old)
teaspoon salt
cup vegetable shortening
1 cup sugar (optional, you can substitute cup juice and add an extra cup of oatmeal)
1 large egg
2 or 3 bananas, mashed and very ripe (we recommend pureeing them to get ALL the lumps out)
2 cups infant oatmeal cereal (you can use regular rolled oats but you won't get the extra vitamins. When using rolled oats, use 1 cups oats and 1 cups flour)

Instructions:

You can make these with or without the sugar depending on whether you would like to eat them too. It isn't a lot of sugar and the cookies aren't very sweet, so they are a good treat for your baby. This recipe will make 5 dozen baby sized cookies or 3 dozen regular sized cookies.

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in small bowl.
3. In a large bowl, cream the shortening and sugar (or juice with the oatmeal).
Beat in the gg and bananas. Gradually add the dry ingredients and mix well.
4. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls 1 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.
5. Bake for 12 minutes until lightly browned. Cool on rack.

You should freeze what cookies your baby wont be able to eat in 5 days.
