Ingredients

Basic Recipe

  • 1/2 cup (50g) rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup breastmilk, dairy, or non-dairy alternative
  • 1 medium egg, whisked
  • 1 teaspoon chia or flax seeds (optional but highly recommended)
  • Optional: pure maple syrup, date syrup, or honey (if over 1 years of age)

Instructions

  • In a microwave-safe bowl or mug, mix the basic ingredients + additional add-ins (see below for some ideas to help get you started)
  • microwave on high for 1 1/2 min, stir, and microwave for another 30-45 seconds, until desired consistency is achieved.
  • Add the stir-ins. Feel free to add any other desired toppings like extra milk, yogurt, nut butter, seeds, fruit, etc.

To cook over the stovetop

  • Heat milk or water on the stove and once it simmers, pour the oats in. Slowly add in one well-whisked egg a little bit at a time, stirring well. Add in the extra ingredients as suggested in these recipes. Once all of the egg is incorporated, continuing stirring the oatmeal until light and fluffy.

Notes

Flavor Combinations:
Peanut butter and banana
  • 1/2 medium banana, mashed
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Stir-ins: peanut butter, banana
Zucchini bread:
  • 1/2 medium banana, mashed
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Stir-ins: 1/3 cup (about 45g) grated zucchini and finely ground or chopped (for toddlers) almonds
Pumpkin pie:
  • 1/3 cup (80g) pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • Stir-ins: finely chopped or ground pecans, maple syrup (optional)
Carrot cake:
  • 1/3 cup (about 30g)  grated carrots
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Stir-ins: unsweetened shredded coconut, more carrots if desired, finely ground or chopped walnuts
Helpful tips:
  • When it comes to add-ins, feel free to top it with whatever you’d like.
  • If you’d like to add a bit of sweetness to your oatmeal, try drizzling in some honey (if over one year of age), real maple syrup, or date syrup
  • Ratio of oats to milk for oatmeal - 1:1. You can certainly add more if you like your oats looser, more porridge-like.
  • You can use water, but if you like your oatmeal thick and creamy, use milk! It’s also a great way to boost protein and fat intake. You can also use breastmilk
  • If you have a younger baby and doing smoother texture or purees, you can use quick cooking oats. 
  • Use a large microwave-safe container (I like to use a mug) so the oatmeal doesn’t bubble over.
Can store any untouched leftovers for up to 3 days in the fridge.
