Baby Green Puffs, no gluten no dairy +6M

Baby Puffs are such an easy baby snack. I do not count the times when my kids were babies and we were either on the go or I needed a light snack for them…and baby puffs were such a fast + convenient + loved by them!!! solution.

There are many Organic Healthy products on the market, but when you will see how simple it is to make them at home you might change your mind 😉

Also, homemade baby puffs are not only super healthy but you can change flavor/color simply changing the organic and seasonal vegetables or fruit you will use.

Today I prepared some “green” puffs using kale and apple, a lovely mix. They are Gluten Free + Dairy Free + Refined Sugar Free!

The recipe is suitable for babies starting from +6 months, but the puffs were sooo good that even my 4yrs and 6yrs old kids loved them (they called them “green chips”).

Also, if you are looking for an egg free recipe, simply switch the two egg yolks with 2 Tbsp of ground flax mixed with 6 Tbsp of water. Simple 😉

Storage: in an air tight container on the countertop for 1 week.

A special THANK YOU to the lovely Gemma that tested my green baby puffs 🙂 She is simply a cutie!!!

    Is the instant rice cereal, rice that has been grinned into rice flour?

      Hi Kimberly!! instant rice cereal (aka baby rice cereal) is a pre-cooked (usually steamed) powder to make baby food in less than 2 minutes without cooking it. Usually you mix the baby rice cereal with either some hot water/baby formula/breastmilk and it’s ready to use. Here you are a post with more info about it, let me know if you have any further info!!

        Would it work if I used rice or oatmeal and then blended it to flour? Or do I have to buy instant rice cereal?

        I appreciate your help 🙂

          Hi Kimberly!
          Instant baby cereal doesn’t need to be cooked, that’s why I used it (it’s simply faster!).
          yes, you can use regular rice or oatmeal and blend them to a flour consistency. you might need to cook the puffs a little more than suggested. I would proceed with the same quantities and than simply check in the oven after 30 min if the puffs are ready (they should be crispy enough to be removed easily from the parchment paper without sticking). Let me know how it goes!!! ciao, b

    Could you give me some examples of different fruits and vegetables I couldn’t use instead of kale and apple? My daughter loves them but I would like to try her with other flavours before she gets bored

    Thanks x

      Sure!! I’m also working on an egg free fruity version of the puffs 🙂 I should be able to post it in few weeks, stay tuned!
      For the substitution I would use spinach / swiss chard / zucchini / broccoli for the kale and plums / persimmons / pears instead of the fruit. Let me know which combo she likes more!!! Thank you for watching!! b
