Water should not be hot otherwise oat will form lumps.
You have to stir it continuously while cooking.
This dish does not require a long cooking time.
If it is too thick add some cold water during cooking and continue to stir.
Don't forget that the pudding will be thicker when it cools down.
So it should be a little fluid when you take it off the stove.
If your baby has just started solids, you may increase the amount of water to keep it more fluid.
There is no harm in cooking it with extra water.
If you think the amount of water you used was too much, no problem; just cook it for one or two more minutes.
Always consult your doctor about the foods you introduce your baby for the first time and follow the three-day waiting rule.
Always add the molasses when the dessert is tepid!
Keep in Mind
You may use any kind of fruit for this recipe.
Pick the fruit that your baby can eat and follow the three-day waiting rule for any new ingredient you add. For this recipe, you may grate fruits like apple and mash fruits like banana.
Do not add cinnamon when you try this recipe for the first time. We recommend you to give cinnamon after month 6 and after your baby gets used to eating pudding.
First serve it to him with the tip of a spoon and gradually increase the amount.
Cinnamon goes very well with pudding, try it, you will love it!
Note for the mothers of delicate babies:
Cinnamon also juices up the appetite!
Generally walnut is fed to babies after they are 1 year old.
However nowadays many doctors advise giving walnuts after month 6.
Consult your doctor before giving walnuts to your baby.
Fungus may easily grow in oat and oatmeal.
So always make sure that oat is fresh.
Buy oat only from very reliable markets.
Keep in mind that production and storage process of oat requires great attention and caution.
If you sense a heavy smell while cooking, don't serve it to your kids cause it is possible that oat is stale.
Always taste it before serving it to your baby.
If it has a somewhat astringent or bitter taste, this can be considered as another sign that the oat is stale.
