Banana & Peanut Butter Porridge Fingers #DairyFree #EggFree

Monday, 20 July 2015

Breakfasts are always hit and miss here, Things One and Two as well as The Dude are absolute cereal killers,  we go through so much of the stuff we need shares in it.  We can't even substitute with the cheaper own brand versions because they know.

Cheerios I've always nicknamed Mother's Helpers because should you need to get something done in the kitchen they work tremendously well at occupying your baby/toddler whilst in their high chair (and handy for practicing their pincer grip and fine motor skills)

Weetabix in baby led weaning is Satan's diarrhea insofar as to say it gets everywhere and you need to pray to the antibacterial wipes and the gods of broken nails to clean it up.  Often you contemplate using fire or a pick axe.

Toast is often used at lunch and the floor isn't very hungry for it in the morning.

Currently as we're egg-free and dairy free that also rules out omelette and scrambled eggs.

So we turned to the baby led weaning favourite; porridge fingers.  
You can make these as simple as you like, technically all you need is porridge oats and your milk of choice (breastmilk, cows milk, coconut milk, soy milk, almond milk etc)  I wanted to add some more fat and nutrients so  added banana and peanut butter and this time switched the milk for apple juice which gives it some extra sweetness too.

There's no real amounts here, it's a do by eye sort of fly by the seat of your pants recipe.  

1.  Mash a super ripe banana in a bowl.
2. Add a dollop of peanut butter (am sure it would be just as tasty with almond butter or cashew nut butter but we're common and skint.  If you're feeling naughty you could add some chocolate spread, many value range choc-hazelnut spreads are dairy free)

3. Add porridge oats a little at a time and mix in
4. Add some apple juice
5. If it's too sloppy just add some more oats.
6.  Spread out on a plate and flatten out
7. Bung in the microwave and nuke it.   I put on high for about 3-4 minutes, you just have to keep an eye on it as it will vary depending on your microwave and how thick you have spread the mixture etc.
8. Cut whilst hot, seriously, It's easy this way.  Trust me I'm a domestic slattern.
