A warm oatmeal breakfast is such a nutritious and comforting way to start the day for both your baby and yourself!!
Why not adding to the basic oatmeal some apples and carrots for a more nutritious and tasty result?
Oats are a gluten-free whole grain and a great source of important vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants…and iron!! A lovely choice for baby food.
Carrots are loaded with Vitamin A that helps the baby’s sight and white blood cells production, that also means a stronger immune system.
Apples are not only super easy to digest but a lovely source of fiber and Vitamin C.
Pending your baby’s age you can easily puree’ the oatmeal with an immersion blender to obtain a smooth consistency. This recipe can be offered to your baby starting from 6 months of age.
The carrot apple oatmeal can be stored in the refrigerator for 3 days.
Also, if you really do not have time in the morning you can easily prepare the oatmeal the night before, refrigerate it and reheat it in the morning.
The procedure is very simple:
Peel the carrot (if it’s organic, you can even leave the peel). Grate the carrot and the apple (I left the peel of the apple as we are going to cook it).
Heat the milk and add all the ingredients. Cook for 10 min up until nice and tender, stir once in a while, more toward the end.
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1 Fuji apple, grated
- 1 carrot, grated

Grate the carrot and the apple (leave the core)
In a saucepan heat the milk of your choice
Add the other ingredients: apple + carrot + oats + vanilla + nutmeg. Stir
Cook at low heat for 10 min. Stir occasionally, more frequently toward the end.
Top with fresh berries. Enjoy warm!
