I’m happy to report that Anna loves oatmeal, or “Gruau” as we all it in our Franco household. She also loves pretty much anything I put in front of her so I am an incredibly fortunate mom. This was a really simple dish to throw together in the morning when you’re up before your baby for no good reason.
Coconut Blueberry Baked Oatmeal
You will need:
two cups rolled oats
1/3 cup shredded coconut
1 tbsp cinnamon
2 cans coconut milk
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
Begin by preheating your oven to 375. Combine oats, cinnamon and shredded coconut. Ad coconut milk and blueberries and mix well to combine. Add to a greased baking dish and bake at 375 for 45 mins, until all of the liquid has been absorbed and the oats are set. Enjoy!
Anna’s been into feeding herself with a spoon lately. It’s messy as anything, but it’s so cute to watch. She also loves soup! This mommy loves to make anything her baby will devour, and she had two bowls of this when I served it up for lunch.
I also used homemade bone broth. It’s so easy to make after you’ve cooked a whole chicken in the crockpot. Simply take off all the meat, put the bones back in the crockpot, and fill with water. Let it boil all night and you have delicious broth in the morning.
Sweet potato chicken noodle soup
You will need:
1 large sweet potato
2 sweet bell peppers
2 celery stalks
1 cup diced mushrooms
1 cup noodles
2 cups shredded cooked chicken
8 cups bone broth
Begin by placing broth and diced sweet potato in a large pot, and bring to a boil. Dice up all other veggies and saute in a skillet. Once potatoes are tender, use and immersion blender to puree until smooth. Add noodles to sweet potatoes and broth and cook until done. Add chicken to skillet. Add veggies and chicken to soup. Enjoy!
