Roasted Blueberry + Cinnamon Baby Food Puree for the #win:

I just want you to know that I have been kicking around making a blueberry only puree for some time now but could never really finalize anything that was amazing.

Something that was so going to be so darn good that you would skip feeding it to your little one and just sit down and enjoy it for yourself. Which I am sure sounds mean and all, but really aren’t we supposed to put our life masks on first?

To me, blueberries are a perfect little fruit.

Sweet
Clean
Fresh
Easy to transport
Easy to eat an entire container in one sitting

The problem is that when made into a baby food puree, they lose their magic. They become bland, mushy on the verge of runny and discolored to a weird purple/brown color. Not something I want to eat, let alone serve to my little foodie.

Then my latest obsession with roasting fruit popped into my head and wouldn’t leave. Roasted blueberries? This might work. It might be the winner I have been searching for. Sprinkled with cinnamon and a pinch of himalayan sea salt sounded both classic and dangerous at the same time. And who doesn’t like living on the edge once in awhile.

The results are beyond any of my expectations.

Thick
Colorful
Sweet with a slight salty aftertaste
Addicting

A puree that is so addicting that after you have demolished an entire serving with a giant spoon, you will be looking through the cabinets and fridge just to find something else to pair this with. The good thing here, is that blueberries are in season, so you can triple this recipe to make enough for you and your little one to enjoy together.
