You can make this quick, easy breakfast or snack in under 5 minutes. You can also use these Oatmeal Fingers for Baby Led Weaning, and you can top them with fruit, yogurt, nut butter, or alongside purees. 

  • Prep time: under 5 mins
  • Cook time: 4 minutes
  • Serves: 1


  • 1/2 cup oats 
  • 2 tbsp milled flaxseed 
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon or use vanilla 
  • 2 tbsp apple sauce or use 1/4 mashed banana 
  • 1/2 cup milk


2 tbsp almond flour (great for added nutrients but can omit to keep nut free)

How to Make Oatmeal Fingers: 

  1. In a shallow bowl, combine the oats, flaxseed, cinnamon (or vanilla), apple sauce (or banana), milk, and almond flour (if using).
  2. Transfer to a microwave-safe dish, roughly 4x6 inches. 
  3. Microwave for 3 minutes.
  4. Allow to cool slightly before slicing into finger-width strips. 
  5. Serve topped with yogurt, fruit, and nut butter alongside a fruit purée for dipping or just as they are. 
  6. These can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container for 3 days.
