I make this porridge for the little fella and it tastes so nice, that I’ve been having it myself except I add a few nuts and seeds to mine. For my son, I also blend up the oats prior to cooking to make it smoother.
I either eat this just as it is, or serve it with fruit and a drizzle of honey (as pictured). I make the apple puree by cooking sliced apple in a pan with a little water until soft, then blending. I freeze the pureed apple in ice cube trays for our porridge and to flavour yoghurt.
- 1/3 cup rolled oats
- 2/3 water
- 2 tbsp. pureed apple
- 2 tbsp. natural yoghurt
- pinch of cinnamon
- splash of milk
- Combine oats and water in a pan and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 – 10 minutes or until water is absorbed and oats are soft and cooked through.
- Stir through yoghurt, apple puree, cinnamon and milk.
- If using stir through seeds and nuts and top with fresh fruit and a drizzle of honey. I like to use linseeds, sunflower seeds, pepitas and almonds.
