Baby Cakes

I was thinking to add a new texture to Evie's diet and now that she can have whole eggs I wanted to give this idea a try.  I had eaten a flourless banna muffin my friend Jenni had made, it was very sweet and delicious! and thought it would be simple to modify.  It was and was still delicious even without an added sweetener.  Unfortunately Evie thought they were yummy but is not currently interested in anything without a tougher crisper teething appropriate texture right now :)  These are more like...a cheesecake like texture.

Baby Cakes
3 eggs
6 overripe bananas
1/4 c flaxseed
dash of salt
1/4 c coconut flakes
3 T coconut oil

Puree in a vitamix, pour into muffin tin, bake 325 for 15-20 min, turn off oven and let sit in oven 15 min to firm.  Try not to eat all of them before offering them to your baby.  Eat warm from oven or cold from fridge.
