Pear Flapjack

I first came up with this recipe as a way of using up pear puree I had in the freezer. A simple mixture of oats, pear and peanut butter with sweetness from the raisins, these baby led weaning flapjacks make a great portable snack.

Pear Flapjack

Pear Flapjack

Ingredients

1 large pear, peeled, cored and diced

½ tbsp raisins

75g quick cook oats

20g butter, melted

1 level tbsp peanut butter

Pinch cinnamon


Method

Preheat oven to 170˚C/340˚F

If younger baby, blend the oats to a flour, for older ones that can cope with texture, leave oats as they are.

In a small saucepan, cooked the pear and raisins in a splash of water until soft. Depending on age of baby, either mash it with a potato masher, or blend it to a smooth paste.

Mix the oats with the pear mixture, melted butter, peanut butter and cinnamon.

Spoon into a lined tin, pressing down to around 1 cm thick.

Bake for 20 minutes, cool, then cut into squares.

Best eaten within 2 days, or frozen.

Gluten Free

Make sure oats are gluten free

Dairy Free
