Ingredients to Make the Best Peanut Butter Banana Flapjacks

You only need a few simple ingredients to make this recipe:

  • Bananas: make sure you use ripe bananas with a few brown spots for sweetness.
  • Old-fashioned oats: to give some structure to the flapjacks and additional nutrition.
  • Vanilla: for flavor. I like to use this one as it is alcohol-free.
  • Peanut butter: will bind everything together and add healthy fats. Make sure you choose 100% peanuts with no sugar or oils added.
  • Desiccated coconut: make sure you use unsweetened coconut.
  • Cinnamon: For flavor.

Step by Step Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 356F (180C).
  • Grease and/or add parchment paper to a square cake pan (9x9in).
  • Mash the bananas and mix with the remaining ingredients.
  • Spread the mixture into the baking tray and press it with a spoon.
  • Bake for 20 minutes until edges start to golden.
  • Let it cool and cut into squares or fingers.

Storage Instructions

You can store these flapjacks in the fridge for up to 2 days or freeze them for up to 3 months in a freezer bag.

To defrost, place them in the fridge overnight or microwave until soft. I suggest warming them up in 10-second increments, as the time will vary depending on your microwave power.

Why can’t I offer these flapjacks to my 6-month-old?

In theory, you can. However, I recommend waiting to offer snack recipes until a couple of months after starting the introduction to solids. It is important to offer fruits and vegetables in their simplest forms (raw, steamed, sauteed, roasted), with and without seasoning (most natural and dry spices are allowed from 6+ months—no salt added). This approach will allow the babies to get to know the new flavors and textures before adding more elaborate recipes to the menu.
