Cooking for Baby: Oatmeal

I got this book from Williams Sonoma Kids. Cooking for Baby, wholesome, homemade, delicious. It contains recipes for babies 6 months and on. The recipes are easy to follow and are put together by age group.

The recipe below for babies 9 to 11 months of age, found on page 60. Enjoy!

(Recipe makes about 2 cups)

Grocery List:
ground cinnamon, 1/2 tsp
vanilla extract, 1 tsp
old-fashioned rolled oats, 1 cup
In a medium saucepan over high heat, combine 2 cups water, cinnamon, and vanilla and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and stir in oats.
When mixture begins to simmer, cover, turn off heat, and let stand until thick and creamy, about 15 minutes. Serve with breast milk, formula, or flavor options (below) stirred in.

Flavoring Suggestions:
1 Tbsp mashed banana, plus 1 Tsp blueberry puree
1 Tbsp apricot puree, plus 1 Tbsp diced pear
2 Tbsp applesauce
