Baby Bites: St Dalfour Porridge Fingers

These are a great breakfast finger food for little ones during the weaning process and can be made plain to start with and then with a variety of flavourful things such as nut butters, curds, chocolate spread or, as I have here, with St Dalfour - natural fruit spread.

The below makes a single portion for my nine and a half month old and she absolutely loves them - very little ends up on the floor. However if you have a new weaner around the six month old mark, this might make two portions, as the final item is similar to a chewy granola, you could save for a snack later on.

It should be firm enough for little to hold but soggy enough for her to chew - depending on your microwave it might take a couple of attempts to work out how long you need. I find with nut butters and Nutella 1-2 minutes does it whereas the St Dalfour take slightly longer.

I serve with a selection of fruity finger foods.

3 tbsp wholegrain porridge oats
3 tbsp milk (I use semi skimmed, but you can use any)
1 tsp St Dalfour (any flavour)

In a microwavable bowl add the 3 tablespoons of porridge oats with the milk and combine with a spoon.

Stir in the St Dalfour and try to equally distribute as much as possible.

Using the back of the spoon press the oats down so they're packed as closely to the bottom of the bowl as possible.

Place into the microwave for 3 minutes.

Take out and if still very soggy, use a spoon to turn over and place back into the microwave for 30 seconds which should firm it up a little bit.

Take out and cut into fingers and place on a plate to cool down until cool enough for little one to handle.
