I've never heard of baby food having sugar in it, so I doubt it. :)
Jamie explains in a different video that once its cut up into individual squares, the sugar becomes almost trivial at less than 2grams per square.
Hi! A 4.5 oz Heinz blueberry babyfood jar has 10g of sugar.
There is no added sugars in baby food at all. The only sugars you are seeing are the natually ocurring sugars in the fruit. Hope this helps!
I couldn't find Oat Flour, but found some Soy Flour. I just made the recipe with the Soy Flour, which has 56g of Protein for 1 cup! The protein bars were super delicious, like chocolate cake.
I couldn't find oat flour either, so I made my own. I ground up quacker oatmeal in a food processor.
You probably got your answer by now, anyways.
1 cup is 2.366 deciliter or 0,2366 liter. Depending on what you measure up to one cup the weight in grams will be different. If you wander about other convertions, check out convert-me.com
The eggs are supposed to keep the batter moist, so I would say no.
I made my chocolate protein bars in a muffin tin, then put a teaspoon of peanut butter into each one. It changes the calorie, protein, etc count, but it's SO good :) Loooove these recipes.
I just made these today and i could not find oat flour anywhere. I ended up using almond meal flour and it increased the cal content but lowered the carb amount. It came out really good
I always keep mine in the fridge. I ate them all before they went bad. About a week?
