  • 1/2 ripe banana
  • 1 tablespoon smooth peanut butter (for less PB flavor, use 1/2 tablespoon)
  • 1/4 cup cooked oats
  • 1/4 cup water (bottled spring water or purified filtered water) OR you can use breast milk if breastfeeding
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil for a caloric boost (optional)


1. Prep the ingredients.

Cook the oats.

Cook the oats following the instructions on the container.

    • Bring 1 cup of water to a boil.

    • Add 1/2 cup of oats, then lower the heat to simmer.

    • Cover and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Any leftover oats can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days, making it easy to whip up more purees throughout the week.

Peel and slice the ripe banana in half.

I will saran wrap the other half in the banana peel and pop it in the fridge for later to use in a smoothie OR to use as finger food for my other one, Lily Mae (Lua’s twin sis).

Ripe bananas are key to making this puree sweeter. Plus, they are a great baby-led weaning food!

Measure out the ingredients.

Measure out the peanut butter, oats, and water in a small bowl. I prefer room-temperature water because it makes the puree less chilly.

2. Combine the ingredients into the baby bullet or food processor.

Place the banana slices, peanut butter, oats, and water into the baby bullet or food processor.

3. Blend to perfection!

Secure the lid and blend until you achieve a smooth puree.

For babies who like more texture, blend it less.

4. Serve and enjoy.

Scoop out the creamy goodness and let your little one savor the nutritious treat.


No need to harp on this one, but always supervise your little one while eating. 😊
