Oatmeal Almond Banana Puree from WeeliciousPin

Oats are among the most nutritious grains you can give your baby. They have a higher level of protein (15-20 %) higher than other grains and contain good levels of polyunsaturated fats. These fats include linoleic acid which is part of the omega-6 fatty acid family which helps support a strong immune system and healthy blood. They’re also rich in vitamin E and zinc, which protect free radical damage, maintain the body’s thymus gland and aid in fatty acid metabolism. Oats are also easy to digest which makes them important for babies immature tummy’s.
More importantly, though, they’re delicious and so many things can be added to them. Now that Kenya is over a year, I’ve come up with different morning recipes, but this one stands out because he loves it. Oatmeal Almond Banana Puree is easy to prepare, refrigerate and just add a touch of milk to make it creamy and serve.

Author: Catherine McCord
Prep Time 1 minute
Cook Time 8 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes


  • 1/2 cup oats (I use 5 minute rolled oats)
  • 1 cup whole milk (you could also use water)
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 1/2 banana


  • Bring oats and milk to a boil and simmer (the package says to cook them for 5 minutes, but I find that for babies you should add a few extra minutes to make them softer).
  • Place all the ingredients in a food processor and puree.
  • Serve.
  • *There are several types of oats you can use. Just follow the package directions depending on which you choose. Adding a few extra minutes to the cooking time will make the oats softer.

  1. As long as you have no nut allergies in your family, I think its fine to start at 12 months.

  2. Hi Catherine–
    What was your timeline about introducing nuts? I know you said in this recipe that Kenyon is over 1 year. Since there is almond butter in this recipe I figured I should ask, as I haven’t introduced any kind of nut or nut butter and I’m just not sure since there are so many theories out there.
