Oaty Fingers

Oaty Fingers

Tasty treats for all

This is our take on the classic porridge finger recipe. Perfect for a quick, no fuss, and more importantly minimum mess, snack or breakfast. Add your own flavours to this base to make it your own.

Tip: As your baby gets older you can make these a bit more exciting by adding other spices such as allspice and dried chopped fruit or make a savoury version with some mixed herbs and grated parmesan.

  • 10 heaped tbsp porridge oats (or a mix or oats, millet flakes or barley flakes to provide a mix of grains to your baby’s diet)
  • 10 tbsp full fat cow’s milk (or no added sugar almond milk, oat milk or any nut milk alternatives)
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon


  1. Pour the oats into a small, flat bottomed microwave proof dish and pour over the milk.
  2. Add the cinnamon and mix together.
  3. Press the oat mix down into the dish with the back of the spoon and cook in the microwave for 2 minutes on high.
  4. Cut into fingers and serve once cool. If you don’t want to use the microwave, these work just as well in the oven. Heat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas Mark 5 and cook for 15 minutes.
