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!
