Cinnamon-Apple Oatmeal (8+ Months)
½ cup golden raisins
¼ tsp. ground cinnamon
1½ cups water or apple juice
½ cup uncooked baby oatmeal
1. Wash, peel, core, and halve the apples. Cut each half into 6 pieces. Place the apple, raisins, cinnamon, and water into a 4-quart pot.
2. Cook apple mixture over high heat, covered, for about 7 minutes, stirring once. Add the oatmeal and cook for 1 additional minute, stirring the mixture continually.
3. Transfer everything into the blender. Puree until smooth. Pour into two ice cube trays and allow to cool. Wrap and freeze. Defrost as needed and serve. Yield: 3 cups
Chef Geoff's Notes: Gentle, aromatic spices like cinnamon make food extra tasty. Even 8-month-olds appreciate a break from blandness!
