Banana Walnut Oatmeal

Banana Walnut Oatmeal

This oatmeal is delicious, easy to make, and includes added calcium for our non-dairy family. Please be careful when offering your child nuts. Nuts are considered a chocking hazard so make sure to crush the walnuts up extremely small and only offer to your child if they are ready.

Almond Milk and Oatmeal Combination

We swap out the water in this quick oatmeal recipe in order to add more calcium to our breakfast routine. One cup of almond milk contains around 300mgs of calcium according to the Silk almond milk nutritional information. This recipe only calls for 2/3 of a cup of almond milk so I estimate that to be 200mgs of calcium.

Toddler Nutritional Calcium Calculations

It seems that the 30% of daily recommended calcium requirements on the almond milk nutritional labels are based on a 1100mgs per day diet goal. So since our toddlers actually only need 700mgs of calcium a day, if we are under by a few mgs at the end of the day, I don’t worry too much about it.

How is the % DV for calcium calculated?

The Daily Value used in nutrition labelling is based on 1100 mg of calcium for a reference diet.

For example, if a food product has 300 mg of calcium, the product would have a % Daily Value for calcium of 27%.
(300 mg ÷ 1100 mg) × 100 = 27%. **

Ingredients

  • 1/3 Organic Banana
  • 2 walnuts Extremely crushed up
  • 1/3 cup Quick Oats
  • 2/3 cup Plain Almond Milk

Instructions

Stovetop (directions based on Quaker Oats package)

  1. Crush up the walnuts*. I use a fork but a food processor would work also for a bigger batch. 

  2. Bring the almond milk to a boil. 

  3. Stir in the oats. 

  4. Cook, uncovered for between 3 and 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. I find the less you stir, the thicker the consistency in the end. 

  5. Remove from heat and then add in your crushed up walnuts and mashed up banana. 

  6. Test the oatmeal to make sure it is a safe temperature to serve your child. Enjoy! 

Quick Microwave Option

  1. Mix in the oats and almond milk. 

  2. Using a microwave safe dish, combine the oats and almond milk and heat for 90 seconds. Stir. Return to micro for another 30 seconds. 

  3. Remove from heat and then add in your crushed up walnuts and mashed up banana. 

  4. Test the oatmeal to make sure it is a safe temperature to serve your child. Enjoy! 

Recipe Notes

*Nuts are considered a chocking hazard so make sure to crush the walnuts up extremely small and only offer to your child if they are ready. 

We hope you and your toddler enjoy this oatmeal variation!
