Egg Yolk Mashed with Bananas

Yes, you read that correctly. Drew had egg yolks mixed with bananas, and he likes it! I wanted to try egg yolks but wasn't sure what to mix it with. My book has a recipe mixing it with avocado and yogurt, but Drew can't have avocados right now and all I have is vanilla yogurt. has a list of items to mix eggs with, which is where I got the idea for bananas. Both my book and wholesomebaby food say it is OK to introduce egg yolks at 8 months, but to hold off with egg whites until one year of age. I used 2 1/2 hard boiled egg yolks and 1/2 a banana and mashed them together. I don't believe you should freeze this; it has a shelf life of 1 to 2 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
To hard boil the eggs, put them in a pot of water (leaving one inch of water over the eggs) over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Once it begins to boil, remove them from the heat, cover the pot and let sit for about 14 minutes. If the egg yolks are grey, they are over cooked.
