Filled with apples and dates, this Quick Breakfast Oatmeal is a healthy and nutritious breakfast to start your and your little one’s day.
Hey there everyone. Breakfast can get tricky at times, especially if you are making it for babies and us. I am always on the lookout for something which can get ready while my coffee is getting brewed in the morning.
To make things simple, I came up with this Quick Breakfast Oatmeal recipe.
In this recipe, I have used Instant Oatmeal since I wanted it to be cooked a fraction of the time.
I have added apples and dates to this oatmeal. Both apple and dates add natural sweetness and give out a delicious aroma.
Further, I have flavored this oatmeal with cinnamon powder, and for the grown-up version, I added some vanilla extract to add a little boost of flavor.Quick Breakfast Oatmeal. A healthy and nutritious meal to start your and your little one's day. Click To Tweet
I always try to keep my recipes open-ended so that there is much room to make changes according to your preference.
In this recipe, too, you can substitute water with dairy or non-dairy milk. Further, you can also add fruits that are available in season or the ones you prefer. There is enough room to add nuts as well. (For kids and grown-ups)
Quick Breakfast Oatmeal is a great starter food for babies. It has all the essential nutrients for the first meal of the day.
Likewise, this is a healthy breakfast option for both kids and grown-ups. You can add any fruits and nuts to your liking. Just drizzle some maple syrup, and you are good to go ahead and relish.

My Little Notes:
Quick Breakfast Oatmeal is great for babies 7 months and above.
Oats are filled with soluble fiber, protein, and the B vitamins thiamin, riboflavin, and B6. They are also a great source of iron, calcium, magnesium, selenium, and phosphorus.
Due to its high fiber content, it is great to reduce constipation.
I would not store this recipe for long. I recommend consuming Quick Breakfast Oatmeal as soon as possible.
While serving it to babies, make sure that the temperature of the porridge is not too hot inside. Stir it for some time, and then feed it to your little ones.
