Remember my three bears!? They used to be such characters on the blog. I think Mazen replaced them! I am pretty sure my mom has two of them at her house. I should check. What I bad bear mother I have been!
Today I am actually talking about the famous three bears. You know, the ones Goldilocks disturbs?!
Mazey and I were reading it the other night and he commented: “Mommy what is porridge?” I explained that it was like oatmeal. His response after studying the pictures of the smooth bowls and spoons: “So it’s like oatmeal soup?” You got it, Mazen! I told him I would make him porridge for breakfast.
So the next morning I got up early to make us bowls of porridge. I used my typical whipped banana oatmeal method but added all milk instead of just half so it would be extra creamy, along with a pinch of cinnamon.
I also broke out the immersion blender to smooth out the texture.
Somebody was excited!! He ate his whole bowl. (Although he did ask for a spoonful of peanut butter on top!)
I added summer fruits to mine. And some coffee!
Here’s the basic recipe:
Three Bears Oatmeal Porridge
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 2 cups milk of your choice
- 1 banana thinly sliced
- Pinch of kosher salt
- Pinch of cinnamon
- Splash of vanilla extract
- Add oats, milk, banana, and seasonings to a medium pot.
- Heat to medium heat and stir frequently until oatmeal is thick and bubbly.
- Use an immersion blender to smooth texture (or a real blender being careful with the hot oatmeal).
Enjoy, my little Goldilocks friends!
