Baby Bear Bites
Liver is so rich in nutrients. It is rich in vitamin A, choline, folate, vitamin C, and iron, Sometimes we make the mistake of thinking babies don’t need as much of certain nutrients because they are smaller, but kids need nutrient density EVEN MORE than adults because they are growing so much.
However, not everyone is such a huge fan of the taste. I wanted to find ways to sneak in liver to Noah’s diet. I wanted to find a way that he would realistically eat it. So, I created recipes like these bites to hide it.
- 3/4 lb grass-fed beef
- 1/4 lb grass-fed burgers
- 1 cup sweet potato
- 2 pasture-raised eggs or 2 gelatin eggs*
- Preheat your oven to 350 F.
- Put liver in blender, and puree.
- Peel, and dice your sweet potato. Steam it for 10 minutes.
- Add the ingredients to the blend, and puree until fairly smooth.
- Scoop mixture into a piping bag or a plastic storage bag and cut the tip off one of the bottom corners.
- Line a baking sheet with a silicon baking mat or parchment paper.
- Pipe little patties that are the size between and dime and a nickel on the mat.
- Bake the patties for 5-10 minutes at 350 F.
- Let the patties cool at room temperature, and then, place the baking pan with the patties still on it into the freezer. This allows the patties to individually freeze so they won’t stick together.
- Once frozen, place the patties into a storage bag, label with the date and description, and place back in the freezer.
*To Make Gelatin Egg
You may choose to use collagen eggs instead of chicken eggs in the case that your child has an egg allergy or sensitivity. Collagen is also a great source of protein to build strong bones, hair, skin, and nails. Plus, it has gut healing properties.
- 1 TBSP pasture-raised gelatin
- 1/4 cup water
- Dissolve gelatin into the water.
- Let sit or bloom for 5 minutes.
