15 Second Breakfast Biscuits

This is my take on the Belvita/Weetbix Breakfast Biscuits that have been very popular lately! I keep a box at my desk at work just in case I’m not organised enough in the morning (otherwise my breakfast would be a coffee only diet) – so this will definitely be replacing the store bought stuff!!!! This is great for breakfast or to snack on during the day!

These are nut free, egg free and dairy free which is handy for lunchboxes!!

Oat and Pear Pancakes

I LOVE pancakes for breakfast! It is really easy, can be easily refrigerated/frozen and reheated, and it results in minimal mess and clean up from 2 toddlers!

 
OAT AND PEAR PANCAKES

This recipe uses NO flour.

Gluten Free
 – substitute the oats for quinoa flakes or gluten free oats.

Egg Free
 – substitute the egg for 1 x banana

Dairy – You can also use whatever milk you like.

These are heavier and thicker than the average ‘flour’ pancakes which makes them really satisfying as they are nice and filling, and you would have no idea there’s pear in there! 

 
Add all ingredients into the bowl. 
 
 
Mix 40 seconds/Speed 7.
 
 Spoon batter onto a frying pan (medium heat) with some butter/coconut oil. 
 
  Fry approximately 2 minutes on each side until browned.

Pear Porridge (with Oats, Chia Seeds and Coconut)

After making porridge for the first time last week in my Thermomix, I’ve been experimenting throughout the week with different fruits and combos. This is our favourite so far!

This is great for toddlers to self feed as porridge ‘sticks’ to the bowl and spoon, resulting in less spillage.

This can be pre-made and kept in the fridge/freezer and reheated in the microwave (with a little extra milk stirred through).

 
Blitz the pear – 2 Seconds/Speed 5

5 Second Chia Seed Pudding

I used to eat this everyday when I was actively trying to get pregnant/found out I was pregnant, and wanted to put super healthy food into my body! I’m not generally a health, superfood kind of person, but when it came to my pregnancy, I was moreso than usual! Now that I need more energy and need to be more organised with two toddlers, I have started making my Chia Seed Pudding’s again so it’s all ready to go for breakfast, or for a snack.

The Chia seeds are crunchier when eaten soon after being mixed with liquid, the longer you leave it to set, the Chia seeds expand and the consistency turns into a pudding and ‘gelish’ texture.

I add the dates for a natural sweetener, and the sunflower seeds and almonds for some texture (even though the LSA already has it in a ground form). You can mix it up and substitute with different ingredients or flavours – i.e. cacoa/cocoa powder instead of vanilla bean paste.

You can also add and mix fresh fruit or berries through, however it would need to be eaten within 24 hours or it tends to get a bit ‘funky’. I like to keep it plain so it can be kept in the fridge for a few days and ready to go when I want some pudding!

 
Add all ingredients into the bowl
 
Mix 5 seconds/Speed 6
 
Eat immediately, or leave in fridge to set for a few hours/overnight. Can be left in the fridge for a few days ready for your consumption!

Finger Food Ideas for Babies and Toddlers

Here are my ‘tried and tested’ list of finger foods for my boys!
When Ethan and Harley started to want to eat themselves, I did a lot of online and book research for finger food ideas. My boys are HUGE for their age, and looove their food. They are not fussy (…most of the time) and have no food intolerances which makes it really easy for me to prepare their meals! My rule is to have the most colourful ‘tasting’ plate of foods so the boys experience a variety of different foods, textures, smells and flavours. I’ve read that a colourful plate of food is a nutritious one! So I make sure I cover lots of food colours in the meals the boys eat (except for when we are out and using the pram!). I’ve also read that the more variety of foods you give a baby when they are young, the less fussy they will be when they grow older (this isn’t tried and tested yet, so *fingers crossed*)!
 
Thermotwinning’s Finger Food Ideas for Babies and Toddlers
Koala sandwich with Mayvers Super Spread on a bed of baby spinach, cherry tomatoes, babybel cheese, steamed broccoli and carrot, strawberries (quartered), hard boiled egg, and pizza pockets 
The boys with their ‘pram friendly’ finger foods (i.e. nothing juicy or coloured like vegemite, tomatoes, berries, watermelon etc)
Dinosaur sandwich with cream cheese on a bed of baby spinach, cheese and crackers, dried apricots, freeze dried apple, and whole orange and poppyseed muffin with almond and chia seeds 
Another ‘pram friendly’ lunch box
Cheese and bacon rolls, sweet eating cucumber, tasty cheese, mini fruit balls, pear and crackers
BREAKFAST:

Pancakes/waffles – these are some that I make that freezes and reheats well:
– Pumpkin Pancakes (The boys fave!!)
– Sweet Potato Waffles 
– Berry Coconut Flour Pancakes 

Wholemeal sandwich, toast or Cruskits with the following spreads:
– Baby purees including fruit purees (instead of jam)
– Vegemite
– Mayvers Super Spread (can be found with the peanut butter section/organics section)
– Cream cheese
– Avocado
– Mashed banana
– Jam

Raisin Toast (there is a wholemeal version available) – freezes and reheats well

Scrambled eggs – in a bowl, add egg(s) (about 1 per child) + a splash of milk + a small handful of grated tasty cheese – microwave 1 minute on high, stir, then microwave 30 seconds at a time stirring in between until cooked. Leave to cool for a few minutes – the tasty cheese gives it some flavour and also helps the egg firm up so it is easier to grip (my husband’s trick! he makes it for the boys on the days I’m at work) – goes well with vegemite on toast!

Sultana Bran Buds (link here) or similar type bite sized cereals (soaked in some milk to soften)

***With a spoon:

MAIN MEALS:

Wholemeal sandwich, toast or Cruskits with the following spreads:
– Baby purees including fruit purees (instead of jam) and savoury ‘main meal’ ones
– Vegemite
– Cream cheese
– Mayvers Super Spread (can be found with the peanut butter section/organics section)
– ‘The Laughing Cow’ cheese triangles – squished and spread 
– Cream cheese mixed with sardines (super nutritious but best left to eat at home as it‘s a bit on the nose!) my boys love this!
– Vegemite and sliced tasty cheese
– Avocado
– Mashed banana
– Jam 

Wholemeal Toast Cheesy Melts – I use one or some of these toppings and top it with a piece of sliced tasty cheese and pop it in the air fryer or grill for 5 minutes/180 degrees
– Tinned tuna
– Ham
– Scrambled eggs
– Tomatoes
– Tinned red salmon
– Avocado
– Bolognese sauce
– Gourmet sausages cut up into small pieces
– Roast/poached chicken (shredded)
– Leftover meat diced into small pieces

Pizza Pockets (link here– freezes and reheats well

Pasta – any type, I usually use elbow pasta, macaroni or small sea shells as they are easy to pick up – freezes and reheats well. I generally use a cheesy white sauce base, vegetable puree, or tomato based sauce for the pasta sauce with the following fillings:
– Tinned red salmon
– Fresh salmon (de-skinned and de-boned)
– White fish like Ling or Barramundi (de-skinned and de-boned)
– Bacon/ham
– Chicken Thigh Fillets (they have more nutrients than breast fillets)
– Pork, chicken or Beef mince
– Peas
– Broccoli
– Sweet Potato
– Pumpkin
– Carrots
– Zucchini
– Frozen Veg i.e. peas and carrot
– Or cooked pasta with grated cheese melted on top (easy and not messy if you’re out!)

Some of the boys’ fave pasta recipes:

Meatballs – Any combo of chicken/pork/beef mince + hidden blitzed up veggies – freezes and reheats well

 
Salmon Patties – I use a recipe from the Thermomix Cooking for your Baby and Toddler book – however this is a great Salmon Rissole recipe – freezes and reheats well
 
Risotto or Pasta Muffin Cups – With any risotto or pasta recipe, just place in muffin tins and top with tasty or cheddar cheese, and bake for about 20 minutes/180 degrees until cheese is melted and golden. Skinnymixer’s Risotto Frittata is a great recipe – freezes and reheats well

Hot Dog Buns (Chinese Sausage Rolls) (link here) – freezes and defrosts well

Sushi – This is great for older babies if you’re out and need to takeaway something for them. My boys love the mini ones and make sure you don’t get the raw fillings, so I usually get avocado, tuna, cucumber, or egg ones. The sushi rice is really sticky so I find it really easy to clean up after them! You can make Sushi yourself – this is a great recipe – Thermobexta’s Egg and Avocado Sushi
 
Thermomumma’s Garlic, Cheese and Spinach Naan (link here) – freezes and reheats well
 
***With a spoon/fork:
VEGETABLES:

Sweet eating cucumbers (halved or quartered lengthwise) – these are mini cucumbers you can get at green grocers, Coles/Woolies and Aldi – usually in the refrigerated vegetable section with the lettuce

Cherry/grape tomatoes (halved lengthwise) – the boys fave are the Gold Sweet Eating Grape tomatoes (they are orange in colour) these are the ones from Coles, they are sweeter than normal Cherry tomatoes which can sometimes be quite tarte

Steamed carrots and green beans (cut in half, then quartered lengthwise) – Fill bowl with water just above the blades, place carrots into steaming basket (I usually make about 2 carrots and a handful of beans then place in fridge to use as needed), then steam 16 minutes/Varoma/Speed 1

Steamed Broccoli Trees – Fill bowl with water just above the blades, place carrots into steaming basket (I usually cut 1 lot of broccoli then place in fridge to use as needed), then steam 12 minutes/Varoma/Speed 1

Steamed Zucchini – Fill bowl with water just above the blades, place carrots into steaming basket (I usually cut 2 lots of zucchini then place in fridge to use as needed), then steam 9 minutes/Varoma/Speed 1

Sweet potato (roasted/air fried/steamed)

Pumpkin (roasted/air fried/steamed)

Potato (roasted/air fried/steamed)

Lettuce/spinach leaves (any type though I steer clear of the bitter ones like rocket)

Cooked peas – Fresh, frozen or dehydrated

Capsicum (Cut into sticks)

FRUIT:

Apples (quartered, cored, then each quarter cut into 3 wedges) I leave the skin on as it has a lot of vitamins/nutrition in it, or else there are ‘kid’s lunchbox’ apples which are smaller which my boys love to use their teeth and bite into!

Pears (quartered, cored, then each quarter cut into 3 wedges) I leave the skin on as above

Seedless Watermelon
(cut into small pieces (one of the boys faves but I leave it for home as it is so messy!)


Blueberries

Strawberries
 (halved or quartered)

Grapes (halved lengthwise)

Bananas

White or Yellow Peaches

White or Yellow Nectarines

SAVOURY:


Hard Boiled Eggs – Fill bowl with water just above the blades, place eggs into steaming basket – cook 15 minutes/Varoma/Speed 1
Tasty or cheddar cheese – pre-sliced/cut into thin pieces
Cheese sticks (these are softer, I would wait to introduce it around 10 months as I found the boys would squish it in their hands and smoosh it everywhere before it got to their mouths)

Babybel Cheese

Deli meats – ham, turkey, Skinnymixers Lunchbox Chicken Loaf

Shredded chicken (poached, roasted)

Crackers – Jatz, Ritz etc

Arnott’s Shredded Wheatmeal biscuits

Fruit straps (100% dehydrated fruit) I have made them like the Strawberry Chips but they have a really short shelf life when homemade (when the boys are older and eat more it’ll better!) but my recent fave are Annie’s Fruit Straps as they are great to leave in the baby bag
Mini Fruit Balls (link here) – can be frozen and defrosted

Cruskits – These are a great alternative to the ‘baby section’ rice crackers which are sooooo $$$$$$ which I use for snacks when we go out

Dried apricots
 
Dried apples

Sultanas 

Tinned pineapple pieces

Freeze dried fruit (I buy mine from Costco, Bellamy’s Organic also have some)

Apple Puree

This is great for baby food, kids (with cereal, yoghurt or plain), adults also with cereal, yoghurt or as an apple sauce to go with a pork roast. It can be kept in the fridge for a few days, or it freezes really well in ice cube trays and taken out and defrosted over a few hours or in the microwave when needed.
Having 2 huge and growing twin boys, I have made A LOT of fruit puree, particularly apples which are cheap and available throughout the year. It is great for a snack or dessert by itself, or with yoghurt or cereal. I have also used this for apple sauce for the adults with a pork roast.
Apple Puree
Now that the boys are toddler age, they are now enjoying their whole apples which they call ‘balls’ (they are obsessed with anything round shaped!), but means I am left with my apples looking like this, with them needing to be eaten up asap!
Toddler attacked apples
This is a great way to use up your toddler attacked apples, apples that are getting a tad old and not as crunchy, or even freshly bought crisp apples!
I leave on the on the skin on as it contains a lot of vitamins and nutrients, but I used to peel the skin off when the boys were about 4 to 9 months when they had more sensitive stomachs.
FRUIT PUREE
 
Ingredients:
 
5 large apples, or A LOT more until you fill up the Varoma tray!
(you can make a mixed fruit puree and add whatever fruits you like, I have used different types of apple, pear, peaches, nectarines, and berries)
 
Method:
 
1. Fill the bowl with 1L of water.
 
2. Fill up the Varoma steaming tray with apples cut up into 8ths (quartered, cored, then cut the quarters in half).
 
 
3. Cook 20 minutes/Varoma/Speed 2.5.
 
 
4. Once cooked, take the varoma steaming tray off, and empty the water out of the bowl.
 
 
5. Tip the cooked apples into the bowl. Cover with lid and MC.
 
 
6. Blitz 30 seconds/Speed 4 slowly progressively increasing to Speed 9. Note: it will explode out of the MC if you blitz the hot apples on a high speed quickly – needs to be done progressively!
This can be kept in the fridge for a few days, or it freezes really well in ice cube trays and taken out and defrosted over a few hours or in the microwave when needed. I usually freeze in ice cube trays and decant them into labelled ziplock bags.

Perfect Eggs (Thermomix and Stovetop method)

My husband and I eat these eggs for breakfast most of the week! Most days it is quick and easy with toast with butter and vegemite, but on the days where I have more time, I also use these eggs for eggs benedict with smoked salmon or bacon.
Perfect Eggs on Toast
I sometimes make the eggs look a bit fancier by putting the eggs in a silicon mould, or tied up in glad wrap with some herbs etc, but most of the time it’s just easier to keep it simple with minimum effort!!
I’ve cooked this for years on the stovetop, and the timing of the cooking was one of the first things I had to figure out when I got the Thermomix to get my perfect eggs!! Gooey in the middle, but firm enough to easily peel off the shell!!
Both methods don’t take too long, and you can prepare the toast whilst the eggs are being cooked. It is quick enough to make for a weekday breakfast before work!!
 
I use room temperature eggs, however you could use eggs straight from the fridge, it is slightly gooeir and may be a little more fiddly to peel.
Thermomix Method
1. Fill the bowl with water just covering the blades.
2. Place 2 – 6 room temperature eggs in the steaming basket and place lid and MC on.
3. Cook for 11 minutes/Varoma/Speed 1.
4. Once cooked, take the steaming basket out with the eggs and rinse under cold water (to stop them from cooking further).
5. Gently crack the egg shell and peel off carefully.
Stovetop Method
1. Fill a small to medium sized pot halfway with water (enough to cover the amount of eggs you want to cook).
2. Put the lid on, and switch the stove to high heat. Bring the water to the boil.
3. Once the water is at boiling point, take the lid off and carefully place desired number of room temperature eggs into pot (I use a slotted spoon to put them in to avoid any slight cracking). Boil for exactly 5 minutes (set your timer!) with the pot lid off. Once the 5 minutes is done, switch off the stove and take the eggs out immediately with a slotted spoon, and rinse in the sink with cold water (to stop them from cooking further).
4. Gently crack the egg shell and peel off carefully.
