These raspberry oat bites only have 4 ingredients and are the perfect snack for littles! They are great for making ahead and then having an easy snack for days as well. My kids loved these and I hope yours love them as well!

As a parent, we are always on the lookout for nutritious and easy-to-make snacks for our little ones. Today, I’m excited to share a toddler recipe that your little will love: Raspberry Oat Bites! These bite-sized treats are not only delicious but also packed with wholesome ingredients that will keep your toddler energized throughout the day. Plus, they are incredibly simple to prepare, making them a perfect addition to your toddler’s snack rotation.

Why Raspberry Oat Bites Are Great for Toddlers: Raspberry Oat Bites are a fantastic choice for toddlers for several reasons:

  1. Nutrient-Packed: Oats are rich in fiber and essential nutrients, providing your child with long-lasting energy. Bananas add natural sweetness and are a great source of potassium.
  2. Finger-Friendly: These bite-sized treats are the perfect size for tiny hands, making them easy for toddlers to hold and eat independently.
  3. Natural Sweetness: The optional addition of maple syrup provides a touch of sweetness, making these bites appealing to even the pickiest eaters. However, you can omit it for babies under one year old or if you prefer to keep the recipe entirely sugar-free.
  4. Raspberry Goodness: Raspberries in the center not only add a burst of flavor but also provide vitamins, antioxidants, and a beautiful color to these bites.

How to Make Raspberry Oat Bites: Now, let’s get into the nitty-gritty of making these delectable Raspberry Oat Bites. You’ll be amazed at how easy and quick it is!

What You Will Need:

  • 1 cup oats
  • 2 mashed bananas
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (optional-leave out for babies)
  • Mashed raspberries

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a mini muffin tin or line it with paper liners for easy cleanup.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the oats, mashed bananas, and maple syrup (if using). Stir until all the ingredients are well incorporated. The mixture should be thick and sticky.
  3. Using a spoon, fill each muffin cup about halfway with the oat mixture. Create a well in the center of each cup with the back of the spoon.
  4. Place a mashed raspberry into the well of each oat-filled cup. Feel free to use your toddler’s favorite berries if raspberries aren’t available.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 20 minutes or until the bites are golden brown and firm to the touch.
  6. Allow the Raspberry Oat Bites to cool in the muffin tin for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Storage: These Raspberry Oat Bites are perfect for meal prep and snacks on the go. Here’s how to store them:

  • In an airtight container: You can store these bites in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
  • Freezer-friendly: If you want to make a larger batch, these bites freeze beautifully. Simply place them in a single layer on a baking sheet and freeze until solid. Then, transfer them to a freezer-safe container or zip-top bag for up to 3 months. Thaw them at room temperature or in the refrigerator before serving.
