Do it yourself…Baby Cereal (Brown rice and Oatmeal)

IMG_1547[1]

Stella has recently started eating and I have been making and freezing baby food all week, fresh out of the garden.  We think mommas milk is best and we don’t stop there.  I don’t know what is in those little jars of baby food at the supermarket, but I do know what is and isn’t in my garden! :)

Along with veggies and fruit I ground up some brown rice in our mill, and oatmeal in our food processor.  If you have a blender or a food processor you can use these to mill your rice or oatmeal to as fine a consistency as you can get it.

I put mine in 1/2 gallon mason jars.  Remember to store these in the fridge or a dark cool place.  You can make a little recipe card and tie it to the side along with a tbsp. measure for quick and handy cooking.

And here’s the recipe’s. Your baby will thank you!!!

Baby Oatmeal Cereal

To make 1 serving for a 5-9 month old baby

1. Bring 1/2 cup of water to a boil and sprinkle in 2 tbsp. of the ground oats.

2. Whisk continuously for 30 seconds and then occasionally for 3-5 minutes or until the mixture is thick and creamy.

Accompaniments: Breast milk or formula can be added to thin the mixture, or ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon, if desired. Fruit purees would go great too!

Brown Rice Cereal

1. Bring 1/2 cup of water to a boil and sprinkle in 2 tbsp of the ground brown rice.

2. Whisk continuously for 30 seconds and then occasionally for 4-5 minutes or until the mixture is thick and creamy to prevent any lumps from forming.
