The first couple of months of Dianna starting to eat porridges and oatmeal – Oh my Goodness did alot go to waste – and I really mean ALOT!
And not only because she threw it everywhere (but her mouth)… but also because she was a bit of a fussy eater and sometimes just didn’t want to eat breakfast.
(Mommy would of course cave and giver her a bottle… hence it went on for quite a while!!)
After starting daycare and her daycare mother giving me some much needed advice on her diet, I have started to be more strict and not offer her a bottle and of course she has started eating her porridge! Although sometimes my portionsize is still a bit off, and quite a bit is left.
I mostly make oatmeal, because it’s easy to make and (in my opinon) tastes great!
But I have since found some great recipes to make use of all that left-over oatmeal!
Leftover Oatmeal Buns
3-4 dl of lukewarm water
Raisins (sometimes I have it in the oatmeal already)
Flour (wholewheat or plain – up to you!)
Pour the lukewarm water into your baking bowl. (NB! It’s important that it’s lukewarm, as the heat helps activate the yeast so your buns rise!)
Add the yeast and stir until it’s dissolved.
Add the left-over oatmeal (and raisins)
Add the salt, oil and finally the flour
Knead until it has the consistency you want.
Let the dough rise for about 1 hour. (If you’re in a hurry less can do as well)
Make into small buns and bake at 180 degrees celcius for aprox. 20 min.
Dianna simply LOVES these with butter and cheese or simply just as they are.
A great and healthy snack for you and your child, especially if you bake them with some wholewheat flour or even rye.
And the best thing is – nothing’s going to waste!!!
