Leftover Jar Baby Food Recipes

 What can you do with leftover jar baby food once baby grows into ‘big people’ food?

I was curious to know this since I probably have over 200 jars of baby food in my cabinet.  I had heard you could mix it into other recipes to use it up and add flavor, so I searched out some leftover jar baby food recipes and thought I would post some of the tastiest ones I found.  (Excluding the dog treats!)  The original source is posted below each photo! Enjoy!

    Thanks for the shout-out for our Baby Food Dog Treat recipe. I loved your other creative ideas for how to use baby food too – I remember my grandma has a recipe for Baby Food Bars which are so delicious and moist!!

    You listed one of my recipes (thank you!) and I have to say I love using baby food to cook with – it is always ripe, always smooth and so effortless. I just wait for sales now (my youngest is 19 months old) until my next baby comes this winter – then I can buy it like crazy once again 😉 BTW, it makes great fat subs in baking. I think it is better than using applesauce!

    I used baby food bananas in place of eggs in pancakes the other day. I bet you could make banana bread too.
