Fried bananas for babies is a great snack for them! And mamas for that matter. Penelope used to love bananas and now she is sort of on a hiatus, although she will eat them dried with her dried strawberries that I get from our local Co-op.
First get you some good bacon fat. By good, I mean fat from organic, natural, grass fed, nitrate-free bacon. Save your dripping in a glass jar the next time you cook bacon and just put it in the fridge. The picture above, is of bacon fat not yet coagulated. It will turn off white and hard in the fridge.
Then put some bacon fat in the frying pan and heat it up. Then add some banana slices.
Then flip them over once they start to brown and brown the other side. It only takes a few minutes. Then dry them out on a paper towel and serve to baby! Or eat them up yourself!
And did you know that babies first food should be egg yolk? And that cereal is about the worst possible thing you could give them as a first food? And that they really shouldn’t have any grains till age 2? Check out this blog post to learn more. Or view my other posts on baby/toddler nutrition.
