Banana Coconut Oat Cookies
If you are wanting to create treats for your little ones that are not full of sugar or overly processed flours, look no further. Bananas keep this cookie moist, while the coconut and oats give it a chewy, macaroon-like texture.
The potassium and sodium in oats are electrolytes that facilitate electrical activity in baby's brain, spinal cord, and muscles.
