SUITABLE FROM 12 MONTHS
MAKES 12 SLICES/ PREPARE 15 MINS / BAKING 35 MINS
1 tbsp Vanilla extract
225g Wholemeal self-rising flour
1tsp Bicarbonate of soda
2 tbsp Pumpkin seeds
2 tbsp Sunflower seeds

Preheat the oven to 180C. Lightly grease and line a 500g loaf tin.
Start by processing the seeds in your Béaba Babycook. Once the seeds are ground to a powder, add the bicarbonate of soda and flour to the Béaba Babycook bowl and pulse a couple of times to mix well. Transfer to a bowl and reserve.
Now mix the eggs, sugar or honey, orange zest and vanilla extract in your Béaba Babycook. Pulse a few times until well mixed. Add the melted coconut oil and mix again.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and add the cranberries. Gently fold with a spatula until just mixed.
Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin and bake for 35-40 min until golden brown and firm to the touch.
Leave to cool in the tin for 5 min before turning out onto a wire rack to cool down. Cut into slices to serve warm or enjoy lightly toasted.
(*) Avoid honey until your baby is 12 months old.
Complex carbohydrates like those in wholemeal flour help maintain our energy levels stable as energy from these foods is released slowly.
B vitamins found in wholemeal flour are needed to produce energy from foods.
Pumpkin Seeds are high in fibre, protein and essential fats. They also contain good levels of iron, magnesium and phosphorus.
Eggs are rich in protein to help us grow and heal. Additionally, eggs contain vitamin A that supports vision and healthy skin as well as riboflavin that promotes normal growth and vitamin B12 that supports red blood cell health.
Sugar contains NO nutrients only calories in the form of refined carbohydrates, that’s why it is important to only have it occasionally.
In order to help balance your sugar levels when eating sweets, ensure they also contain fibre form fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds or wholemeal flours and protein from eggs, nuts or seeds.
