Snack Time : Banana Oatmeal Bites

Hi Mamas!

I’ve recently been trying to come up with more breakfast foods for Liam other than fruit and Puffs. Don’t judge me, he is absolutely obsessed with them.

He usually eats about half of my breakfast as well – whether it’s a buttered bagel or eggs and toast, the kid will house it. Some days, I resort to stuffing my face in the kitchen while he’s not looking (just to avoid the constant whining and begging!).

That, or waiting until his first nap to indulge.

Liam loves everything right now and is a major foodie, which is a blessing, so I thought it was time to experiment with some baked goodies for my boy.

Here is my super simple recipe I put together for banana oatmeal bites, perfect for breakfast, snack time, or even for lunch on the go. Simple ingredients and quick and easy prep! Mama (and Dada!) approved as well 🙂
