Creamy apple pie oatmeal porridge
Creamy oatmeal with sweet apple and maple flavour + cinnamon and cloves. And best of all, kid approved around here. Hopefully the same is true in your house.
To make this gluten free, be sure to use certified gluten free oats. There is a dairy free option as well, which is included in the recipe notes.
Have your helper start by grating the apple if he/she is old enough, or by measuring and pouring the oatmeal & milk! Something else my 3 year old enjoys doing is dutifully sprinkling the toppings onto each serving after I scoop them from the pot. Ten raisins each… 1, 2, 3…
I hope you enjoy it!
Also have a peek at apple ‘marshmallow’ oatmeal, for another kid approved breakfast 🙂
