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!
Makes 7 Mini Muffins
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.
