Got milk?, Milk, weaning and more

Batch cooking (veggie style)

When I was in the first few weeks of maternity i batch cooked loads.

When I was due to start weaning Dorothea I returned to my batch cooking days- it’s so helpful, quick and cheaper too.

I recently asked on my insta what people want more of; and the answer was weaning recipes! So here we go.

I don’t follow recipes; so these are pretty much my creations.

A couple of great easy to make ‘finger’ recipes for weaning- and a fab cookie recipe for breastfeeding mums.

1 large butternut cubed- steamed and mashed

2 large bananas mashed

2 tablespoons almond butter

1 cup oats

2 teaspoons dried herbs

Mix together- pour into large square silicone pan- bake for 25 mins at 180 ( or until firm and brown on top)

Slice into fingers and cool (can be frozen)
