Store bought Baby Rusks annoy me.

I hate paying for food that goes straight to the floor.

I hate paying for food that is really average and i know i could cook better.

Rusks are boring! There is not a lot of flavour, smell, textures - nothing.
So I made my own :)

Homemade Baby Rusks


1 cup Quick Oats
1 cup Almond Meal
1 cup Mashed Banana
3 tbl spoons Olive Oil (or something else)
1 tbl spoon Self Raising flour
1/2 tbl spoon Brown Sugar
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Cinnamon Ground
1/4 tsp Mixed Spice


Mix all up and pour into baking paper lined slice tin. Bake for 1 hr at 180 degrees celcius

Lift out baking paper from slice tin and cut the slice in rusk size fingers.

Put the baking paper on a cookie tray and lay the fingers on leaving spaces between them.

Put them back in the oven for another 45mins or so pending on how thick you cut them. The middle of the rusks should be cooked.

Take them out and lay on cooling racks, they will go hard once cooled.

Pop into snap lock bags and keep in the freezer until needed.


As with other Rusks and Biscuits these do break down so don't leave your baby unattended with one as it may be a choking hazard.
