Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time30 mins
Total Time35 mins
Servings: 2


  • 1 banana
  • 2 egg yolks
  • ½ cup breastmilk or prepared infant formula or if child is older than 9 months: whole cow’s milk or alternative
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Mash the banana really well with a fork. Add in the egg yolks and mash with fork to combine. Then, stir in the milk, flaxseed and cinnamon. Let this stand for 5 minutes to allow the ground flaxseed to thicken up just slightly. Then, mix again one more time.
  • Pour into two custard dishes – or use several if you’d like!
  • Place the dishes into a baking pan.
  • Pour water into baking pan until the water level reaches halfway up the custard dish. This is called a hot water bath.
  • Bake for 25-35 minutes or until a knife inserted into the middle comes out clean. Every oven works slightly differently, so keep that in mind!
  • You can serve this after it has cooled. Or, keep it in the fridge for a few hours to serve it your baby cold. There’s nothing wrong with serving safe food that is cold!


This keeps in the fridge for about 2 days.
