  • Lock both bowls in place and turn babycook on.

Instructions for Regular Cook Method

  • In a small saucepan, bring 1 cup of water to a boil. Add oats and reduce heat to simmer and cook for 5-10 minutes until liquid is gone and oats are cooked.

Notes

Honey: use honey only for toddlers 1 year and older, omit honey if you are serving this to a baby under 1 year of age, as honey can cause botulism.
Age: from 6 months and up
Serve to Baby: you can serve this to baby with chunks (great for baby-led weaning) or you can puree the oats and strawberry puree into a smooth and creamy puree, simply place both the oats and strawberry puree into a blender and puree for 1-2 minutes. 
Yield: 2 small servings
Storage: Fridge – store in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. Freezer – can be frozen for up to 4 months (this and this are my favorite freezer storage containers).
