My mom-friend Meghan told us about some cookies that she bakes for her daughter. I think these sound great for babies between the ages of 7-12 months.
1. Preheat the over to 400 F (you could do hotter/cooler if you want - just changes the cooking time)
2. Pour in about what you think is about 8 servings (about 2 cups) of cereal into a bowl
3. Add a jar of baby food (I use the PC organics - blueberry seems to go over well, but so has the peach and the apple and mango one - you could use veggies I'm sure too!)
4. Add a baby food jar full of water. But really, the baby food and water are just there to get the food wet.
5. Stir it with a spoon
6. Add more water if necessary. If it is too wet, add more cereal and make more biscuits
7. Spoon them onto a cookie sheet with parchment paper. (You don't need the paper, but it makes it easier to get them off).
8. Flatten them with my hand or something flat. This just helps to cook them evenly and faster.
9. Put in preheated oven for 10 - 15 minutes.
They'll kind of brown. Let them sit for a while before placing them into a container to freeze. Each morning, take one out and let it defrost a bit on a plate before giving it to your little one.
Because your baby isn't getting the liquid in the cereal (it evaporates), make sure to offer a drink of water with it.
