Being a Mom of 4 kids it's often hard to find a yummy treat that all of them will enjoy. One constant in our house is fresh fruit but eating plain fruit is getting a little boring. I decided to whip them up an after school ( or anytime really ) treat. This sneaky mom even picked up some Gerber Lil Bits Oatmeal with Strawberry and Bananas while on one of my many trips to Walmart to sneak into our treat.
Having fruit go bad makes me a bit bonkers since it is so expensive lately and feeding 6 people is a struggle.
I whipped the kids up an Oatmeal Banana Strawberry bread while they were at school and they were so excited to try it when they got home.
What is the recipe you ask? It's super simple and you only need a few ingredients. Here is what I used but you can add any fruit you like.
1/2 cup Gerber Lil Bits Oatmeal with Strawberry and Banana
1 cup Raw quick oats
3 fresh strawberries
1 ripe banana on its way out the door
1 package of Gerber 1st foods Strawberry Banana
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup of whole milk
1/2 cup flour
In a medium bowl I combined all of the dry ingredients and mixed them around then I added the wet stuff and mixed really good. Pour the mixture into a greased loaf pan and place in preheated oven (350*). I baked ours for about 45 minutes but I did check on it after 35.
Nice and golden and filled with all the good things my kids love!
I am so glad that the kids enjoyed their treat with a little hidden surprise, I just wish there was a little piece for my husband to try because he is the ultimate pain!
