We know finding healthy snack options can be hard, and often there isn't a lot of time (or inspiration!) when it comes to cooking from scratch.
This easy recipe is great for on the go or to supercharge baby mealtime with some extra goodness. Plus it's a really tasty way of sneaking a little extra green veg in to your reluctant baby!
Snacks are advised for children 12months+. If your child is under one, this recipe could work really well as nutritious finger food, with a spread or dipped in hummus!
Broccoli Bread Recipe
1 head of broccoli, including stalks
150g ground almonds
½ tsp oil for greasing
Optional: 10g chopped herbs: dill is delicious in this
2 tsp sesame seeds
Roughly chop the broccoli then blitz to a crumb consistency by pulsing in a food processor. Add in the eggs, ground almonds and any additional ingredients then blend until combined.
Line and lightly grease a baking tray then evenly spread the bread mix over.
Bake in a preheated oven 170 degrees for 30-35 mins or until firm but lightly springy to touch.
Once completely cooled, remove from tray and slice into fingers for a perfect on the go snack or cut into squares for a nutritious sandwich bread.
The bread freezes brilliantly – make a big batch, cut it up and freeze for later or keep in the fridge for 3 days!
