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.
