    I got this recipe off the anabel karmel website and thought id share! Made it this morning and my lo loved it! Made a change from readybrek and regular porridge


    150ml whole milk
    15grams oats
    6 chopped dried apricots
    1 large ripe pear

    Put the milk, oats, and chopped apricots in a pan
    Bring to the boil
    Simmer for three minutes
    Blend in a food processor, adding the chopped pear

    Suitable for freezing!

    hi - thanks for posting, made it last night, the whole house smelt lovely (added a cinnamin stick) and emma wolfed it down!
    mine turned out a bit runny so had to add some ready brek but i didn't have the recipe on me so probably used too much milk!

    I might make a weeks worth on Sunday and defrost one everynight ready for brekkie the next morning. Gotta be cheaper and tastier than plain old ready brek! Cheers Amy x

    I'm sure he'll love it with the fruit in it! I'll have to do a batch on Tuesday when the shopping gets delivered and then start from next sunday, i'm going to seperate the flavours though so he has more variety. He also loves cinnamon so i'll use some of that too x

    Let me know what variations you make and i will try them too! Its so cheap for a massive bag of oats from tesco, readybrek costs loads in comparison!!

    Thats exactly what I was thinking, plus he never seems to 'enjoy' his plain old ready brek and has never been a fan of weetabix either. I'm going to do apple, apricot, pear and cinamon all seperate so he has 4 different flavours to alternate with x

    This sounds delicious!! I have tried porridge fingers from the blw cookbook bit my lo was unimpressed. I wonder if I add a bit less milk whether it would be thicker and easier for Arthur to pick up with his hands?
