Rolled oats baby food recipe

How to Make Baby Oatmeal {Different Types}

How to make oatmeal for babies, from oatmeal cereal for early eaters to steel cut oats, plus the peanut butter banana oatmeal recipe I make for my babe almost every day.

As an oatmeal lover myself I had a feeling that my little one, Olivia, was going to like it as well and turns out I was right… she’s a big fan!

That said, when I first thought about giving her oatmeal I wasn’t sure what type was best and how to prepare it. I had so many questions… What type of oats are best? Are rolled oats too thick for babies? Do you cook the oats in breast milk or add it after?

If you’re a new mama/papa, you might be wondering the same things. Luckily I’ve done all the research and I’m here to help.

For starters, oatmeal is a great food for babies. Many pediatricians suggest some sort of baby cereal (like oatmeal) as a first food because it’s mild, easy to digest and has a low risk for causing an allergic reaction.

Store-bought baby oatmeal is available, but it’s basically just oat flour (or ground up rolled oats) and it’s super easy to make yourself at home! One thing to note is that packaged baby cereals are typically fortified with iron and if you make oatmeal cereal at home the iron content won’t be as high.

When starting solids with Olivia, we skipped the baby cereal all together and went with veggies and fruits. The first food I gave her was steamed and pureed sweet potatoes, thinned with breast milk. After introducing several pureed fruits and veggies, we started giving her oatmeal. It was probably around 7 1/2 months so we went straight to quick oats and rolled oats, cooked the way I’m sharing in the recipe below. In the beginning I thinned the oatmeal with breast milk, but now I make her oats the same way I like mine, without needing to add any additional liquid.

How to Make Oatmeal for Babies

Here I’m covering the basic method for cooking different types of oatmeal for your baby. Of course, feel free to add mix-ins and toppings to give the oats more flavor and variety when your baby is ready.

Oatmeal Cereal // 5+ months

  1. Grind old fashioned oats in a food processor or high-powered blender until finely ground like a flour.
  2. Boil 1/2 cup of water and sprinkle in 2 tablespoons of ground oats. Whisk continuously for 30 seconds and then stir occasionally while it cooks for the remainder of the cooking time, typically 3-5 minutes. The oats are done when they are thick and creamy.
  3. Remove oats from heat and let cool. Add breast milk or formula to thin. You’ll want the cereal quite thin for new eaters.

Note: you can grind up a larger batch of oats to make the process super quick in the morning. Store the ground oats in an airtight container in a cool dark place or in your refrigerator.

Quick Oats for Babies // 6+ months

Quick (or instant oats) are the most processed of all the oat varieties. They are pre-cooked, dried, and rolled and pressed slightly thinner than rolled oats. They cook faster than steel cut or rolled oats, but they also lose a bit of texture in the cooking process so they tend to be mushy.

  1. Bring 1/2 cup of water to boil, add in 1/4 cup of quick oats and stir to combine. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 1 minute, stirring occasionally.
  2. Remove from the heat and let cool. Add breast milk, formula or water, if needed to get the oats to the desired consistency. Add mix-ins and toppings of choice.

Old Fashioned Rolled Oats for Babies // 6+ months

Old fashioned rolled oats are oat groats that have been steamed and then rolled which speeds up the cooking process for all of us at home.

  1. Add 1/4 cup of old fashioned oats and 3/4 cup water into a pot over medium high heat and stir to combine. Heat over medium-high heat for 5-7 minutes or until all the liquid has been absorbed.
  2. Remove from the heat and let cool. Add breast milk, formula or water, if needed to get the oats to the desired consistency. Add mix-ins and toppings of choice.

Steel Cut Oats for Babies // 6+ months

Steel cut oats are the least processed oats. The oat groat (the full oat “grain”) is cut into two or three parts to get to steel cut oats. That said, they’re also the most dense and chewiest oatmeal option so they’re good for older babies. I still don’t make steel cut oats for Olivia and she’s 12 months old!

  1. Bring 3/4 cup of water to boil, add in 1/4 cup of steel cut oats and stir to combine. Return mixture to a boil and then reduce to a simmer for 20-30 minutes or until most of the water is absorbed. Stir occasionally during cooking.
  2. Remove from the heat and let cool. Add breast milk, formula or water, if needed to get the oats to the desired consistency. Add mix-ins and toppings of choice.

Health Benefits of Eating Oatmeal for Babies

Oatmeal is a wonderful food for babies for a variety of reasons. It’s gentle on their tummies and packed with fiber, magnesium, iron and zinc. Little ones often experience constipation as they introduce solid foods into their diet, so oatmeal is a great intro food as it acts as a natural laxative.

How to Flavor and Season Oatmeal For Babies

When making oatmeal for babies it’s fun to switch up the flavors and toppings instead of feeding them plain, boring oats.

Olivia eats just about anything and I attribute that to offering her a variety of foods and seasoning things early on. In the beginning I seasoned her purees with aromatic spices like cinnamon and nutmeg and now she loves food with flavor. Her latest favorite is this tofu pumpkin curry.

I have given Olivia a variety of oatmeal flavors, but typically I make her oatmeal the same way I make my favorite peanut butter banana chia oatmeal. I cook it with additional water (so it’s voluminous and extra creamy), cinnamon and I also add banana slices in with oats. As it cooks, I mash the banana slices so they soften and mix throughout, adding a subtle sweetness (without adding any actual sugar). After cooking, I stir in ground flaxseed or chia seeds and peanut butter.

Adding Peanut Butter to Oatmeal

I like mixing the peanut butter in with the oatmeal for some healthy fat and protein. I also like that it gives her a good amount of exposure to peanuts, which is now said to be key for avoiding food allergies. Of course, be sure to talk to your pediatrician about introducing peanuts to your little one and make sure they tolerate it before adding it to their oatmeal. I also recommend using peanut butter that has only one ingredient (peanuts) so there’s no added oil, salt or sugar. Peanut butter is my g0-to choice, but you can use other nut butter like almond, cashew and sunflower seed butter if you want to switch it up!

Use Leftover Oatmeal as a Thickener

You can also use leftover cooked oatmeal for babies to make combination purees or to thicken purees that are too thin! Just toss the cooked (and cooled) oatmeal into a blender with the fruit or veggies you want to combine it with. Puree until it’s reached the desired consistency and serve.

How to Turn Oatmeal into a Finger Food for Babies

One cool thing I realized after refrigerating some of Olivia’s oatmeal is that cold oats sort of congeal and stick together. When this happens, I just break apart the oats and serve them to Olivia cold as finger food. It can get a bit messy but she LOVES it so I give it to her all the time!

Of course there are some additional ways to prepare oatmeal as a finger food for babies/toddlers including baked oatmeal cups, regular baked oatmeal (readers have told me their babies love this blueberry baked oatmeal recipe), oatmeal baby pancakes and even porridge fingers!

How to Store Leftover Oats

Store leftover oats in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. If the leftover oats have breast milk or formula added to the oats, you should follow the storage guidelines for the milk in terms of how many days you can keep it. I personally like using fresh breast milk to thin the oats because it stays fresh for about 3 days, whereas previously frozen breastmilk usually needs to be used within 24 hours.

The oatmeal will thicken as it sits so you can serve it in mushy finger foods chunks like I mentioned above (if your baby is good with finger foods) or you can add water, breast milk or formula to thin it out before serving. I give it to Olivia cold and she gobbles it up, but you can warm it up a bit before serving if you want.

Baby Oatmeal

4 from 86 votes

Here’s the recipe for oatmeal that I make for Olivia almost daily. I cook the bananas in with the oats so they soften and add a nice hint of sweetness without added sugar and then stir in ground flaxseed (or chia seeds) and peanut butter for extra nutrition and flavor!

Print Recipe Pin Recipe

Prep Time 5 minutes

Cook Time 7 minutes

Total Time 12 minutes

Servings 1

  • 1/4 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 banana, sliced
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground flax or chia seeds, optional
  • 1-2 teaspoons peanut butter
  • breastmilk, formula or water to thin, if needed
  • toppings of choice: fresh berries, more peanut butter, more bananas
  • Add oats, banana slices and cinnamon into a pot. Add water and stir to combine. Heat over medium-high heat for 5-7 minutes or until all the liquid has been absorbed. Be sure to stir the oats several times while cooking to make sure the banana slices melt into the oats. You’ll know the oatmeal is done when all the water has been absorbed and the oats are creamy and fluffy.

  • Remove pot from heat and stir in ground flax and peanut butter, if using.

  • Portion oats into a bowl and let cool before serving. Oats can be warm, but you don’t want them to be too hot. If the oats are too thick (sometimes this happens as the oats cool) add a splash of breast milk, formula or water to thin. Feel free to add toppings like fresh berries, more peanut butter or banana chunks.

Types of Oats

The only difference between the 3 main types of oats – steel-cut, rolled and instant, is how much the oat grout is processed. The result of this process is different textures of oats with varying cooking times.

  • Steel-Cut Oats: are the least processed of the oats, and they retain about the same amount of fiber as rolled or instant. Steel-cut oats are a great option if you are going to blend your oats into a smooth puree for baby. Since it is thicker and chewier oat, it is best to serve to babies 11 months and older if not blending.
  • Rolled or Old-Fashioned Oats: Also known as old-fashioned or whole oats, rolled oats are flat, pre-cooked and dried. While they have a similar amount of fiber as steel-cut oats, they are more versatile and take less time to cook. Rolled oats are extremely easy to blend into a smooth puree, served cold as a finger food, and they can easily be served to toddlers.
  • Instant Oats: are the more processed of the three oats and cook very quickly. While you can certainly use instant oats to make a baby cereal, since they tend to be slightly lower in fiber, I recommend the other two oat varieties first.

Gluten-Free Oats: all oats are naturally gluten-free, but they may be processed on machinery that also processes wheat. If you are looking to introduce baby to gluten-free oats, then make sure you look for a brand that is labeled as Gluten-Free. This is my favorite brand of Gluten-Free Oats.

How to Make Baby Oatmeal

There are several different ways to cook oats depending on which type of oat you are using.

Old-Fashioned Oats
  1. Boil: bring 2 cups of water to a boil.
  2. Add Oats: add in 1 cup of old-fashioned oats along with a pinch of chia seeds, hemp seeds and any spices you are using.
  3. Cook: turn down the heat to medium-low and cook the oats for 5 minutes or until all of the water is gone and the oats are soft. Let cool slightly.
  4. Blend: transfer the oats to a blender or food processor and puree for 1-2 minutes, adding water in 1/4 cup increments if needed, until completely smooth.
  5. Eat: serve to baby or freeze for later.

Steel-Cut Oats

Other Cooking Methods

I have found that cooking the oats first and then blending them, creates the smoothest oatmeal for your baby. But there are a couple of other ways to make oatmeal for your baby.

BEABA Babycook

Love the idea of fresh oatmeal for your baby, but are short on time? Then let me introduce to you the BEABA Babycook.. aka your new best friend! With a touch of a button, the Babycook will cook the oats and puree them into whatever consistency you prefer. It’s definitely kitchen magic!

Fill the reservoir tank to a level 3, close and lock the lid. Press the steam button, and let the Babycook do all the work! Once steamed, transfer the cooked oats to the glass container, leaving the water that is already in there and adding in an additional 1/4 cup of fresh breast milk, formula or water. Close the lid, and hit the blend button for 1 minute or until the puree is smooth. You may need to add more liquid to the puree if needed in 2 tablespoon increments.

Frequently Asked Questions

When can baby eat oatmeal?

Baby can have oats as one of their first foods. When a baby can start on solids is determined by their own rate of development, which generally comes between 4-6 months of age. Some of the developmental milestones babies need to reach in order to start solids include: if your baby has solid control of their head and neck, if your baby has doubled in weight, and if your baby is reaching for or opening their mouth when you eat (see my guide here). Before you start your baby on purees, you should consult with your pediatrician to make sure your child is developmentally ready.

Can oatmeal be baby’s first food?

Oatmeal can 100% be your baby’s first food if you want it to be. It is recommended to wait to introduce the top eight allergen foods to your baby once a few other well-tolerated foods have been introduced, but otherwise, foods can be introduced in any order so choose whatever you are most excited for your baby to have. 

Is oatmeal a common allergen for baby?

No, oatmeal is not a common allergen, however, as with any food, start with a small portion and be aware of any signs that might be an allergic reaction after introducing it.

Do oats cause constipation for babies?

No, oatmeal can actually help relieve constipation in babies due to the high fiber content that makes it easier on your baby to pass stools.

Can you add spices/herbs to this recipe?

n this recipe, we are adding in a pinch of chia seeds and hemp seeds, but feel free to add in a pinch of spices if you want. Some great options are: cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin spice blend, allspice, cloves or fresh ginger.
Tip on Spices: I usually add in spices to my baby food purees, but you can add or leave out spices in all of your baby food. You do you! Either way, this puree will taste amazing. 

Feeding Tips for Purees

  • Throwing spoons – is a common phase that all babies go through at one point or another. One of the best ways to handle spoon throwing is to ignore it and keep feeding baby as usual (with an extra spoon you already have at the table). If baby ends up also throwing back up spoons #2 AND #3, simply encourage your baby to eat with their hands until they appear to be finished with the meal. Give baby plenty of opportunities to practice putting items in and taking items out of containers outside of meal times.
  • Follow your baby’s lead – when feeding purees from a spoon, sometimes there’s a tendency to keep offering bites past the point of your baby being full. Always follow baby’s cues for when they are done eating. Turning away from the spoon, closing her mouth, or pushing food away are all signs that baby is finished with the meal.
  • Purees are great to keep in your baby’s regular rotation of foods – but if you start feeding with traditional weaning using purees, make sure to progress beyond eating ONLY purees. Once baby can safely and comfortably swallow purees (usually by 7 or 8 months) it’s time to introduce other textures, such as teething biscuits and soft cooked finger foods. Moving onto additional textures in a timely manner may help prevent feeding difficulties at a later age.

How to Store Oatmeal for Baby

You can store the oatmeal cereal in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 days. 


This oatmeal puree can be frozen for up to 3 months.

  • Spoon pureed oatmeal into a freezer storage container (this is my favorite freezer storage container) – do not overfill. 
  • Place the lid on the storage container or cover with a piece of saran wrap and label with date and recipe name. 
  • Place the tray into the freezer and let freeze completely – preferably overnight. 
  • Pop-out the baby food cubes and place in a zip-lock baggie or stasher bag – don’t forget to re-label the baggie or stager bag for future reference. 

Label Tip: Don’t forget to label your purees before you place them in the fridge or freezer with the name of the puree and date you made it. Take it from me, you will completely forget when and what is in your freezer by the end of the week;).

Oatmeal Combination Purees

While Oatmeal is great by itself, it’s also super easy to mix and match with other nutrient-dense baby food purees. Give these fun flavor combos a try! Stage 2 Baby Food.

  • Apples
  • Carrots
  • Pears
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Green Beans
  • Peas
  • Pumpkin
  • Mango
  • Yogurt

How to serve Oatmeal for Baby-Led Weaning

Oats can be hard food for your baby to pick up and feed themselves (oh the mess!). A great way to serve oats as a finger food is by simply spooning a couple of strips or round shapes of cooked oats on a plate and then letting them cool off on the counter or in the fridge. Once cold, the oats will harden enough for your baby to be able to pick them up by themselves. I’m not saying there won’t be a mess.. but it will be less of a mess and definitely easier for your baby to self-feed. Babies are usually ready for baby-led weaning around 6+ months of age. 

6 Ways to Flavor Oatmeal

Once you get the basics of oatmeal down for your baby, you can have some fun and serve them some flavorful combinations. Here are some great options that baby, toddler, kids and even you will love!

  • Apples + Cinnamon: add in a couple of heaping spoonfuls of grated apple and a big pinch of cinnamon to oats right before serving. Can add a touch of maple syrup or brown sugar into toddlers or kid’s bowls.
  • Spinach + Pineapple: cook the oats with a handful of frozen pineapple. Add to a blender along with a handful of spinach, pulse or puree until spinach is incorporated.
  • Blueberries, Cinnamon and Vanilla: add in a handful of frozen blueberries, a pinch of cinnamon and a drizzle of vanilla extract while cooking the oats. Serve whole or blend for baby.
  • Banana + Peanut Butter: add in slices of a very ripe (lots of brown spots) banana to the oats while they are cooking. Mash the banana while it is cooking into small pieces. Spoon oats with banana into a bowl and add a swirl of peanut butter (or any nut or seed butter you prefer) right before serving. Serve whole or blend for baby.
  • Carrots + Flax: add in a handful of grated carrots to the oats while they are cooking. Serve whole or blend for baby. Spoon the oats and carrots into a bowl and top with a sprinkle of ground flax seeds. You can also add finely chopped walnuts and raisins to toddlers and kid’s bowls.
  • Mango with Coconut Milk: cook the oats in canned coconut milk (instead of the water) and then add in a handful of fresh or frozen cubed mango. While cooking, mash the mango with the back of a spoon. Serve whole or blend for baby.

Or watch a shortened version of this video here.

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 tsp hemp seeds (optional)
  • 1 /2 tsp chia seeds (optional)
  • Boil: In a medium saucepan, bring 2 cups of water to a boil.

  • Add Oats: add in 1 cup of old-fashioned oats along with the chia seeds, hemp seeds and any spices you are using.

  • Cook: turn down the heat to medium-low and cook the oats for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until all of the water is gone and the oats are soft. Let cool slightly. 

  • Blend: transfer the oats to a blender or food processor and puree for 1-2 minutes, adding water in 1/4 cup increments if needed, until completely smooth. I had to add 1/2 cup of water to my oatmeal. You will want the oat cereal to be on the thinner side so it doesn't become sticky. The oats will continue to absorb liquid as they cool, so add more water, breast milk or formula as needed.

  • Eat: serve to baby or freeze for later. 

Age: 4+ months

Yield: Makes roughly 20 ounces

Type of Oats: This recipe is for old-fashioned oats. For steel-cut or instant oats, read the full post. 

Adding Spices: you can add a big pinch of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice mix, or a smaller pinch of nutmeg or cloves to these oats before blending. 

Chia and Hemp Seeds: are added for a nutritional boost, but you can add or omit if you prefer. You can get both of these at any health food store or online here (chia / hemp).

Storage: Fridge – store in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Thawing: Once thawed the oats can become pretty thick. To thin the oatmeal out again, just add water, breast milk, formula or another fruit or veggie to the oatmeal 1 tablespoon at a time until you reach your desired consistency.

Oatmeal, a wonderful breakfast for children, which is hard not to love. High in calcium, protein, fiber and B vitamins, oats are an ideal choice for breakfast and a healthy snack. Rolled oats are also very versatile and can be used in baked goods, smoothies, thickening fruit and vegetable purees, and more.

There are a few things to be aware of when introducing oats into baby food. For starters, don't fool yourself into buying quick-to-cook or instant oatmeal. They have been processed in such a way that the health benefits of them will not be significant.
