Fruit salad… Yummy yummy, fruit salad… In my tummy!

What a busy day, I’m only getting the chance to sit down now to do your breakfast post! We love fruit for breakfast, for lunch in fact even for dinner! So when the Wiggles were singing about it this morning I knew that’s what we were going to have for breakfast 🙂

Stewed Apples

If you have been following our Facebook page before we started this website, you may remember our failed attempt at baked cinnamon apples.
They were dry and took forever to bake (which if you have a baby you know isn’t ideal). I had a few porridge cakes left over from yesterday and thought it would be a good opportunity to try stewing some apples instead of baking them. Success they came out so tasty, a little bit sticky and syrupy and Mr B loved them!

Recipe:
Cut an apple into eight pieces.
Pour enough water into a small pot so it just covers the bottom and is about half way up the side of the apples
Mix a tsp of cinnamon into the water and place the apple slices in the pot.
Bring it the boil or until the apples are just soft but not falling apart yet.
I’m sure you would do this anyway but break an apple slice in half before giving to your baby as they stay incredibly hot in the middle.

Porridge cakes

One if the hardest foods to try get my Mr B to eat is porridge. We all know oats have fantastic health benefits and is a great breakfast food but because we don’t spoon feed, it’s been really hard to figure out how to get them in him.
We have tried different ways to do this and have found a few variations but today we tried these porridge cakes .
We didn’t use her all of recipes but the base gave us a good starting point.
I made three variations so that Mr B still got his usual amount of fruit for breakfast (although I did give him a kiwi to eat as we had to wait for the cakes to cool).

Base recipe:
3 Tbs Oats
3Tbs Milk (we used Almond milk)
Mix the oats and milk and let them soak up the milk a little, then add the rest of the ingredients.
Pop them into the oven at 180deg for about 15 min. This will bring the cakes together but still leave the inside moist and porridgy.

Banana porridge cakes:

3 tbs Oats
2 tbs milk
1/2 mashed banana
1 tbs coconut

Apple cinnamon cakes:

3 tbs Oats
2 tbs milk
