a joke that (apparently) never gets old

cookies and movies

this past weekend i baked the happy baby his first “cookie.”  i’d actually been searching for a recipe for homemade teething biscuits when i found this recipe for “oats and ‘naner drops“.  i loved that it was wheat and egg and sugar free (at the time i found this recipe, we hadn’t tried any wheat yet), so i decided to give it a try.  here’s the recipe i made:

banana oatmeal baby cookies

1 c quick oats
1 c ground oats (i put the oatmeal in the blender to make a coarse oat flour)
1/4 t salt
1/4 t each of cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, & nutmeg
1 t baking powder
1 c (~2) overripe bananas, mashed
1 t vanilla extract
3 T oil

Mix dry, mix wet, add wet to dry. Drop by the spoonful onto parchment paper or greased baking sheet. Bake 12-15 min at 350. (note from the website says this was “adapted from a vegan cookbook”)

i think they met with approval:

p.s. i’m working on another movie that (gasp!) doesn’t involve the baby eating something.  it needs a few tweaks and then i’ll put it up here.  i think you’ll like it.


just in case you’re curious, here’s what we’ve been working on:
