Because sometimes a plain bowl of oatmeal just doesn’t cut it. When those days occur, make Oatmeal Owls! I’m a big fan of oatmeal art and these owls are an easy way to add some extra fruits into your little one’s breakfast and also add a superstar smile to start off their day. It’s such a great choice for a gluten/egg/soy/dairy-free breakfast (with a nut free option). Allergic to nuts? Simply replace the almond slices with sunflower seeds and use the tip of a strawberry for the nose. That’s why this idea is so great! There’s always another way to recreate Oatmeal Owls with your child’s food allergies in mind.
You’ll get such a kick out of your breakfast looking back at you with such a smug look on its face. Check out how to make these Oatmeal Owls here:
- ½ c. gluten free certified rolled oats
- 1¼ c. nondairy milk
- 1 strawberry, sliced
- almond slices
- 3 banana slices
- 2 dried blueberries
- 1 almond
- Combine the oats and nondairy milk together in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Stirring often, simmer on low heat for 5 minutes or until the liquid has been absorbed according to your preference.
- Assemble owl shape into a bowl of oatmeal and serve.
