Mini Jones does not like the texture of porridge at the moment, but in a bid to get him used to breakfast foods other than toast, I baked some porridge in a mini muffin tin with berries on top. This seemed to work and were an instant hit. They make a perfect snack too!

Porridge Bites

Porridge Bites

Yield: 7


3 tbsp quick cook porridge oats

3 tbsp milk

fruit of your choice - currently I'm using 4 blueberries and a strawberry cut into thirds


Preheat the oven to 180˚C/350˚F

Mix the oats and milk together in a bowl and leave for ten minutes.

Drop teaspoons of the mixture into a lightly greased mini muffin tin - the mixture will still look pretty sloppy but don't worry, the oats will absorb the milk.

Place a piece of fruit on the top and press down slightly.

Cook for 15 minutes, until set. Cool for 5 minutes in the tin and then place the bites on a wire rack.

Store in an airtight container for a day or two.
