SosiCakes (Freezer Pleaser)

Happy Wednesday!

It’s the middle of the week and my motivation usually starts to fade when it comes to whipping up fresh breakfasts. So, of course it is time to hit up the freezer. We always have a batch or two of our SosiCakes ready to quickly reheat and serve.

This is by far our toddlers favourite recipe! I wanted to create a delicious peanut free and milk free “pancake” option. It needed to be quick and easy like traditional pancakes, without the unnecessary additives found in common pre-made mixes.

Note: We use the Hamilton Beach blender (and it’s on sale right now) whop!

1 Breakfast, 2 Kidlets

Good morninggggg toddler feeders!

I noticed my little ones ate very well in the morning so this prompted me to challenge the traditional breakfast. We choose homemade, healthy options to start our day. With the peanut and milk allergy we avoid traditional processed cereals. It may seem odd to see sweet potato on a breakfast plate but we love to start our day with complex carbohydrates whenever we can. These are even leftover Tex-Mex sweet potatoes. They are already prepped from the night before, which makes this a Monday morning win! The frozen peas are also a morning favourite and I don’t mind because they are actually a source of protein and vitamin K.

The blueberries are freshly picked from a local farm and are absolutely delicious. I cut them up much smaller for my younger one. I sometimes leave them whole or sometimes cut the larger ones in half for my oldest (over the age of 2), depending how large and soft they are. Just make sure to always monitor your child while they are eating and cut foods  that could be potential choking into appropriate sized pieces.

Grapes are cut into eighths for my youngest and I use a feeder to let her chew on them. My new favourite thing is freezing them before using in the feeder so they also help when her teeth are cutting through (win-win really). You can find information on our favourite feeders here! For my toddler we still cut the grapes into small pieces, quartered is the minimum (sliced lengthwise), as recommended by The Canadian Paediatric Society.  I saved this PIN as a visual reminder.

Curry in a Hurry

Ahhhh curry. I’ve actually really only begun to savour your flavour later in life (I believe it was my husbands doing)! We have introduced curry flavours early in our little ones culinary exploration so they may too enjoy the deliciousness that it offers.  The curry flavouring that we trust is Club House, as I have called them to confirm their facilities are peanut and milk free.*

Everyone in my family devours this curry recipe from Jessica in the Kitchen – it is seriously so delicious.  I did add in a cup of spinach about 5 minutes before serving( always trying to add in extra nutrients wherever possible).

A trick my brother-in-law showed me was to put honey on the Naan bread (in this case, the milk free toasted pita chips). It is seriously so good!

We choose Basmati white rice, cooked in chicken broth as it seems to be compliment this dish very well. If you are staying vegan, veggie broth would be just as yummy.

Chips and Dips.

A sometimes food in our house is chips. Tostitos chips* are peanut and milk free and sneak themselves into our rotation about once a week (no complaints from the toddler). The salsa we like is Hardez since it has no preservatives and an unique pica de gala taste. We use organic avocado whenever possible. It is definitely one of those foods that taste even better organic.

This is our go-to on busy days when we have gymnastics or awesome playdates to attend!

We trust Tostitos to be peanut and milk free, however always check for yourselves before trusting processed foods.

Our little one loves the Scoops with Hardez Salsa and avocado.

*Always make sure to check that the products you serve are peanut and milk free.
