Sugarless Oatmeal Banana Cookies- Great for Babies!

"I made these for my 10 month old son! i broke it apart into finger food size pieces and he gobbled it up! I plan on trying this with veggies as well! *NOTE: the oats look really dry but are fine after they are pureed. These are best warmed up a little and are more like a bread. The dough looks more like pancake batter."

  1. Not great. If you want to make oven pancakes for your child, fine. I followed recipe exactly and it's very liquidy batter, making very thin pancakes. Why no leavener? (i.e. Eggs, baking powder?) I was looking for something sturdy that can be packed for a snack, i.e. a cookie. Note nearly all reviews tweak recipe substantially.
  2. Perfect recipe for my 14month old who has a sweet tooth. I added a few dashes of cinnamon and a tablespoon of coconut sugar so it isn’t technically sugar free but it’s a better alternative to white sugar and it complements this recipe nicely. My daughter shoved the whole thing in her mouth at once and I had to fish it out haha
  3. When making these, how long are they good for? I'd love to try these with my 10 month old!
  4. What type of milk did you use? Whole milk?
  5. Our 9 1/2 -month-old loves these! We had extra baby oatmeal and I wanted to bake with it, so I looked for baby recipes...these are great. They're soft in the middle, and I break them into small enough pieces for the little guy to gum. If he knows they're around, he would rather not finish the food he's supposed to be eating :)


  1. I used olive oil instead of melted butter, regular white flour, I didn't purée anything, so the oats are still a little chunky and I added a few chopped dates.
  2. I did a few things different and it turned out really good! I used coconut/almond flour mix and subbed Almond milk as well. The cookies turned out delicious (even for someone who isn't 8months).
  3. One of my go-to recipes! Not many sugarless recipes out there for infants/toddlers. Instead of butter, I used 1.5 spoons of applesauce; 1.5 spoons of oil for some of the times that I made this; worked out. Though a bit floppy when it was 3 spoons of applesauce. Added chocolate chips or chunks to a third of the batter, to share the cookies with my toddler or for us adults to eat. Tried with 50/50 coconut flour today, as suggested by Kathy O. They last about 2-3 days on the counter. In a mason jar or other well sealed container. Looove this recipe :)
