An alternative to classic porridge, great for BLW. These oatmeal muffins with fruit are very simple to make and the effect is delicious, very nutritious, filling and healthy. Me and my hubby were munching them no less intensely than the main recipient of the dish :-)
Muffins are moist inside, soft, firm and full of fruit. You can use other fruit (fresh or frozen), for example raspberries or strawberries. Frozen fruit should be defrosted earlier.
Oatmeal is one of the most nutritious and healthiest foods. They provide long-lasting energy, they are a great source of fiber, vitamins and minerals, they have a positive effect on the digestive system and immunity. Oat flakes have much more advantages, so they are worth including them in the child's and family diet.
7m+, if you use coconut or other plant-based milk. In case of cow milk - adding it to such dish isn't forbidden and can done almost at the beginning of expanding the diet (in small amount), but I introduced cow milk rather late. Decide on your own :-)
