1/2 cup applesauce (although this time I used puréed peaches)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup oatmeal (quick oats)
1/2 whole wheat flour
Mash the bananas and add the applesauce, eggs, vanilla, and cinnamon. Mix until smooth. Stir in the oatmeal and flour. Mix until combined.
Spoon out onto a preheated pan or griddle in small amounts. You may need to use cooking spray or butter depending on how non-stick your pan is.
Make them fairly small for little hands. I got about 18 out of this batch.
3/4 cups puréed cooked chicken (I used my leftover baby food but you could also just cook up some ground chicken or turkey)
1/2 cup puréed pear
1/2 cup puréed apple
1/2 cup grated carrot
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp paprika
2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
Mix all ingredients in a bowl until fully combined. Scoop into greased mini-muffin tins (or just roll into a meatball shape and place on a cookie sheet).
Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 15 to 18 minutes until firm. Makes approximately 18.
Q is a pro at eating these meatballs now. The other day I made them with chopped spinach instead of the zucchini and they were just as good.
