Baby food - afternoon fruit and oatmeal purée

Baby food – afternoon fruit and oatmeal purée

This is my baby’s absolute favorite purée. She loves it so much that when I don’t have enough of it, she refuses to eat anything as substitute. 

The recipe makes 4 portions at around 180ml, equals 4 days.


  • 2 very ripe bananas
  • 200g blueberries (frozen work, too)
  • 1 apple, we like using Braeburn
  • 2 ripe pears
  • Oatmeal (we use “Kölln Schmelzflocken”)
  • 3-4 tbsp Canola oil, refined – not cold pressed! 


  • Blender
  • Steam cooker, or a strainer and a pot on the stove
  • Bowl
  • Knife and cutting board
  • 4 little pots, should be usable for freezing
  • Spoon


Peel apples and pears, cut to small pieces. Thoroughly wash blueberries when they’re fresh. Peel bananas. 

Steamcook apples, pears and blueberries for about 5 minutes, add bananas and blend everything.

Put oil in a bowl, pour in the fruit purée and start adding as much oatmeal as you wish for your desired consistency. Baby likes the purée quite thick, so I add about 8-9 tbsp oatmeal.

Stir everything and fill into your little pots. Let cool and freeze.
