Almond & Cinnamon Porridge

  • Almond & Cinnamon Porridge - Baby Food Recipe Recipe
  • Under 10 minutes to prepare
  • 10-30 minutes to cook
  • 1 adult and 1 baby
  • How to make

50g porridge oats
50g ground almonds
1 tsp cinnamon
250ml water or milk of your choice

Optional toppings:

Drizzle of maple syrup
Sprinkle of pumpkin seeds (12mths +)
Sprinkle of sunflower seeds (12mths +)
Large hand full of fresh strawberries (or whatever fruit is in season)
Dollop of Greek yogurt

Step 1

Measure out the oats and almonds and tip both into a saucepan. Top tip - a ¼ measuring cup holds 50g of porridge and it’s much easier to use this each morning rather than weighing it out every day. If you don’t have a proper ¼ measuring cup, anything will do that holds the right amount

Step 2

Add the cinnamon and water (or milk), stir and cook over a medium/low heat, stirring regularly for about 10 minutes until nice and thick

Step 3

Meanwhile chop the strawberries into bite size pieces – smaller for babies

Step 4

Pour cooked porridge into bowls then add any or all of the optional toppings. Set the toppings out on the breakfast table for little ones to help themselves to – encouraging them to get creative with the decorative toppings (a couple of strawberries and a few seeds can make a great porridge face or an abstract piece of art)!

Recipe notes

Why not add a dollop of Greek yogurt for extra decadence?
Good quality whole oats are super sustaining to keep Goldilocks and your little 'bear' full up till lunch. The almonds provide a great source of protein and healthy fat, whilst also giving a natural creaminess which means you can make the porridge with water rather than milk for a dairy-free version.
