  • 1 large apple peeled, cored and chopped
  • 75 g porridge oats oat flakes
  • 50 g sultanas omit for a young baby
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 500 ml milk I used Koko dairy free milk

To top

  • Pecans or other chopped nuts or seeds
  • Poppy seeds
  • Maple syrup


  • Place your chopped apple into a medium-sized saucepan. If you want your apple to be extra soft (for example if feeding to a young baby) add a splash of water and cook with the lid on for 5 minutes until starting to soften.
  • Add 75g porridge oats, 50g sultanas (if using) and 1 tsp ground cinnamon to the pan. Stir.
  • Pour over 500ml milk. Bring to the boil, stirring occasionally, then reduce the heat and cover with a lid. Simmer for 3-5 minutes, stirring often until the apple is soft and the porridge is creamy.
  • If you want your apple to break down completely you can mash it gently with the back of a wooden spoon or a fork before serving.
  • Allow to cool a little if serving to a baby or child.
  • Serve with extra toppings such as chopped nuts or seeds and some maple syrup if wanted.
