Peach Baby Oatmeal
Serves: Makes approx. 3 cups
1 cup whole quick cooking oats (I use these)
2 cups water
½ tablespoon pure maple syrup, optional
½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
⅛ teaspoon ground ginger
2 ripe peaches, pitted and roughly chopped
Grind oats in a small food processor until powdery.
Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan. Slowly pour in ground oats and whisk until smooth. Lower heat and add maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon and ginger. Continue to stir and cook over low heat for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, rinse out food processor and add chopped peaches; puree until smooth (leaving a few chunks for older babies).
Stir in peach puree to cooked oatmeal. Let cool and serve.
Oatmeal will last for up to 5 days in fridge or 2 months in freezer.
