James is turning one year old on Sunday (CAN YOU BELIEVE IT??) and we are having a little Birthday party for him. Well...it was going to be little, but somehow we have over twenty people coming now! It will be fun to celebrate our sweet boy with our friends and family!
I am going to be baking James a cake from scratch, and I'm going to be using this recipe. It's all healthy ingredients and has no sugar in it. I make this a lot for James, but usually I cut it into bars for him to have as breakfast or as a snack. For his birthday I will leave it as a cake and I'm going to make a home made icing for it.
Anyways, here is the recipe I use for these healthy baby bars!
Here's What You Need:
- 5 ripe bananas
- 1/2 cup of sugar-free applesauce
- 3 tbsp of melted coconut oil
- 3 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Here's What You Do:
Preheat the oven to 190 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mash the bananas in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, add all of the dry ingredients. Then, add in the mashed bananas, apple sauce, melted coconut oil, and vanilla to the dry ingredients. Mix well.
Coat a cake pan with cooking oil. Pour the batter into the pan, and place the pan into the oven. Bake for around 20 minutes. Check to see if the cake is done with a toothpick (should come out clean).
Let the cake cool.
Slice into bars, if you'd like, or leave as a cake!
