Thread: Fruit stick/slice/museli bar recipe for toddlers?

  1. #1

    Question Fruit stick/slice/museli bar recipe for toddlers?

    I usually buy DS the Heinz kids fruit sticks and he loves them but they are costing me a fortune and I'd rather he didn't eat so much processed food (he asks for one every day ) so was wondering if someone had an alternative I could make myself?

    I know you can buy cheaper fruit sticks at the supermarket but they have way more sugar than I'm comfortable giving DS.



    It doesn't have to be a fruit stick, but something similar that's quick and easy for him to eat.

    I have a recipe that is like anzac biscuits but can be made as a slice.
    Let me know if you would like the recipe. Its easy to make and we all like it, when I can be bothered to make it.

    That would be great, I love anzac biscuits and could always add some dried fruit yeah??

    I should have also said he is pretty much dairy free due to an intolerance but can handle small amounts in cooking etc.

    My girls love these.....

    Sultana oat cookies

    1 cup self-raising flour
    1 cup Carman?s Toasted Muesli (its expensive....but reallllly worth it. The smallest box has lasted us about 5 batches of these cookies....so worth it)
    1 cup Sunbeam Sultanas
    3/4 cup Uncle Tobys Rolled Oats
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    125g butter, melted
    1 egg, lightly beaten
    1 tbsp honey
    Preheat oven to 190?C or 170?C fan. Line two baking trays with baking paper.
    Place dry ingredients in a large bowl and toss to combine. Combine butter, egg and
    honey and add to dry ingredients. Mix well.
    Drop 2 tbsp of mixture onto prepared trays. Press lightly with the back of a fork.
    Bake for 10-12 mins, until golden. Cool on trays before storing in an airtight container.

    Mbear:

    How many cookies does this make and do they freeze well?

    Just considering doing a half batch cause it seems like it will make a lot.

    TIA

    The anzac slice Rivlas is talking about is lovely, her daughter gave it to me DS loves it, and so do I LOL! And yes, it would be nice with dried fruit in it.

    Here is the slice, sorry it took so long. Hope you enjoy it. I have never made it into biscuits. I use a square tin or a small slice tray.


    Munchies
    1 cup plain flour
    1 teaspoon bi carb soda
    1 cup sugar
    1 cup coconut
    1 cup rolled oats
    125g butter melted
    1 tablespoon golden syrup
    4 tablespoons hot water

    Method:
    Sift flour, bi-carb. Add sugar (I used castor), coconut & rolled oats. Combine melted butter, hot water & golden syrup. I melt butter & syrup together. Add to dry ingredients mix well.
    Roll mixture into small balls & place on a lightly greased tray. Bake in moderate oven for about 10 minutes or until golden brown.
    FOOD FLASH Reduce water by half, press into a slice tray and bake approx 20 minutes. Cut into squares while warm.

    ohhh i would say 24.....depends on how big/small you make them.
    They freeze excellent. My Dd#3 whom is 17 months struggles with morning school runs and scoffing toast down with the rest of us...so i pull one of these out of the freezer when im in a hurry, and she munches on that whilst we are at school assembly....

    Just wanted to pop back in and say I've made both mbear's sultana & oat cookies and Rivlas' slice and both were a big hit

    I must have made monster sized cookies mbear cause I only got about 15 I think! They were great though
