1/2cupmilkwhole milk or plant-based milk is fine here
For the Toppings:
2tbspfrozen and defrosted raspberries
Add oats, milk, and water to a pot.
Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until oats start to become creamy. Cook longer for a thicker consistency, shorter for a soupier consistency. Experiment with what works best for your baby!
Right before you remove from heat, stir in chia seeds. They will soak up liquid and thicken the oatmeal slightly. Pour oatmeal into a bowl.
Top with almond butter by stirring it thoroughly into the oatmeal. (clumps of almond butter are a choking hazard under 4!) stir in berries and ground walnuts or simply add on top.
