Banana oats porridge.
This ones my personal favourite as its the easiest and quickest breakfast recepie and i continued giving this to my kid even in his toddlerhood.
Now everyones familiar with oats but there are 5 types of oats-
1.oat groats- hulled toasted grains
2.steel cut oats-least processed oat cereal. Here the toasted oat groats are simply chopped into chunks, take longer to cook, contain the most nutrients.
3.Rolled oats-made by steaming the toasted oat groats and then running them between rollers to create flattened flakes.
4.quick oats- These are processed even further, simply rolled into even thinner flakes to ensure they cook faster. Not the most healthiest.
5.instant oats-most heavily processed. Here the groats have been chopped fine, flattened, pre-cooked and dehydrated. Instant oatmeal usually has added salt and sugar.
Commonly used oats available in the market are quaker oats, pocket friendly, cooks within 3 to 5 mins.
1.Take 2 tbsp of oats in a pan and add 1/2 cup of water to it. Cook it in medium flame for 3 minutes or until the oats get cooked. Stir it continuously while cooking otherwise the oats may stick to the vessel
2.Once the oats get cooked well, add a cup of milk to the cooked oats and boil it for 4 minutes by stirring occasionally or until it becomes thick.
3.Remove from the flame once done and cool it down (Skip adding cows milk if you are preparing the porridge for babies under one year).
4.In a blender put a banana and the warm oats to make a smooth paste.
4.Use rolled oats variety, which is healthy for babies rather than quick cooking oats.
5.Instead of bananas, you could use steamed apples to make this porridge.
6.Add roasted almond powder to it just before serving.
