You know I hate wasting food, so in an effort to polish them off before the expiration date rolls around, I concocted a little sweet treat for my boy. I tossed a couple of ingredients into a bowl, plopped it into the microwave and the result was something that smelled just like apple pie, so I've dubbed this Toddler Apple Pie! :) And it just so happens to be William's new favorite thing to eat.
If you have a little someone in your family who loves fruit, then try this out and see what they think!
Toddler Apple Pie
- 1/4 c. baby oatmeal
- 1/4 c. unsweetened applesauce
- 1/4 tsp. vanilla flavoring
- dash of cinnamon
- Mix together oatmeal and applesauce in a microwave safe bowl. Place in microwave and cook for 10 seconds.
- Add in vanilla and cinnamon. Stir to combine.
The great thing about this treat is that it's nice and thick so if your todder is spoon-feeding him/herself then this is a perfect time for them to try out their skills!
I got a huge gummy grin and arm flails as my Thank-You this particular night.
I'll take it! ;)
