Nutritional Information

  • Good source of fiber, which benefits heart health and digestion. The pectin in apples is a prebiotic, which is the food probiotics, or good bacteria in the gut, feed on. The soluble fiber apples contain helps with cholesterol levels. 
  • Helps with hydration due to their high water content.
  • Good source of vitamin C, which helps with immunity.

Apple Oatmeal with Almond Butter

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time:
 10 minutes
Servings: 4 servings
Age: 6+ months 


  • 1 cup old-fashioned or rolled oats
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 medium apple, finely chopped or grated 
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp almond butter


  1. In a small saucepan, bring the water to a boil over high heat. Add in the oats, cinnamon, and chopped apples. If you are using grated apples, add in at the end. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until most of the water has been absorbed and the oats are tender. Let cool slightly. 
  2. Stir in almond butter, and grated apples (if using).

Puree: to serve to your baby as a puree, use a blender or a hand-held immersion blender, blend until smooth for a Stage 2 Puree, or blitz for a few seconds for a chunky Stage 3 Puree. 

Baby-Led Weaning: oats can be hard for your baby to pick up and feed themselves (oh, the mess!). A great way to serve oats as a finger food is by simply spooning a couple of strips or round shapes of cooked oats on a plate and then letting them cool off on the counter or in the fridge. Once cold, the oats will harden enough for your baby to be able to pick them up by themselves. I’m not saying there won’t be a mess.. but it will be less of a mess and definitely easier for your baby to self-feed.

Additional Spices: Feel free to use a pinch of nutmeg, cloves, allspice or pumpkin pie spice blend if you prefer. 

Storage: Fridge – store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. Freezer – can be frozen for up to 4 months.
