Breakfast – Porridge Bites

Indy has loved porridge since he was 6 months old – it was the first breakfast I gave him once we had moved on from fruit and veg, and for some reason he only likes it with banana!  It’s one of the only meals I still had to spoon feed him, which is why I started making porridge bites a couple of months ago. They are still porridge in principle, but are the perfect solid size for him to pick up.  You can also be as creative as you want for toppings to make them a bit more exciting! The recipe is really simple, and is super quick to make, so easy to do in the morning.

1 cup rolled oats

½ cup whole milk

¼ cup raisins

Mix the oats and milk in a bowl and add the raisins

Spoon into silicon cake moulds or a muffin tray and lightly flatten down

Microwave for 2-3 minutes – I judge this by eye really.  I like them to firm up so they hold their shape when out of the mould, but not really hard  

Cool in the moulds and serve

Any spares can be kept in a Tupperware or tin

The recipe makes about 9 bites, and I give 3 to Indy for each meal.  I find changing the toppings mean he doesnt get bored if he has them a few consecutive days, and they always consist of things we already have in the fridge or the cupboard!  Some of our regular ones are:

Yoghurt and blueberries (or any kind of berry!)

Peanut butter and banana

Peanut butter and apple

Strawberry jam

Frozen berries heated and reduced down into a compote
