Pears, apples, bananas and chia seeds are all great sources of fibre so this is an excellent treat to get things moving. Remember that it is a ‘treat’ though, due to the high levels of sugar in the fruit.
PREPARATION TIME: 10 minutes
COOKING TIME: 30 minutes
Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F / Gas 6).
Place the chopped fruit on a tray lined with baking paper, and coat the fruit pieces with coconut oil using your hands.
Bake for 25–30 minutes or until golden brown.
Place the baked fruit in a food processor with the cinnamon and chia seeds. Blend until smooth, and serve.
EXTRA STUFF ♥ This is great for babies at around 8-10 months, but if your baby’s tummy is sensitive don’t include the chia seeds until 12–15 months.
♥ Could there be a better seed than chia? It has 6 times more omega 3 than salmon, 5 times the calcium of milk, 3 times more iron than spinach… the list just goes on. Chia can be added into any of your recipes – just be mindful if your little one has a sensitive tummy.
