Apple Sticks with Peanut Butter / Homemade Peanut Butter Recipe - Finger Food Ideas for Babies

My baby food section is a total hit. I have stopped publishing those post because maha is not much into baby foods anymore. I have started giving normal foods which we all eat to maha and occasionally i will give her different varieties of finger foods as evening snacks for her, so she gets a habit of self eating. Many of my viewers have been asking me to share some finger food ideas for babies. So i have started this series from today. So keep looking for new food ideas..

Similar Recipes,

Maha is now 1.5 years and i have started giving this just now. Some people may think about peanut allergies, but feeding peanuts to babies below 1 year is not advisable. But you can slowly introduce peanuts after 1 year, but i kind of stayed away from it till now and started now. I dont want to give her whole peanuts, so made this peanut butter and gave her. I made apples as finger and dipped it in peanut butter and gave her. She liked it.

You can give this to babies above 1.5 years.

Makes : 250 grams


Roasted Whole Peanuts - 250 grams

  1. Hi. How long does it last? Does it need to be refridgerated?

  2. Aarthi it is entirely new to me. Could you please tell me other than this where we can use or eat it.


  3. @AnonymousU can eat it all alone. You can spread it in sandwiches or roti or toast and eat it. You can add it in baking.
