I know what you are going to say… you can’t give babies nuts… but that is a debatable statement. Doctors now are saying, if you have no familiar signs that point to potential nut allergies, you can consider feeding baby nuts earlier than the one year mark. If you are considering feeding a baby under one nuts, I highly recommend talking to your babies doctor and making the decision together. That said, if your baby is over a year and has no signs of nut allergy, you both are going to love this protein packed oatmeal! This recipe is so easy to put together, and such a complete meal for a growing child.
If you are apprehensive about the almond butter, feel free to leave it out! The toasted oats provide a slightly nutty flavor and the recipe will not suffer at all from the omission.
