In a microwave-safe bowl, mix together oats and water and cook for 30 seconds on high. Add the peanut butter and egg yolk and stir until completely mixed. Cook an additional 30-40 seconds until the mixture is steaming and cooked through. Allow to cool before feeding baby. Add a tablespoon of breastmilk or formula to thin out if needed.
Note: Contains approximately 2g peanut protein, 2.7g egg protein
NIAID recommends introducing peanut foods to infants as early as 4-6 months to help prevent a peanut allergy. Visit www.PreventPeanutAllergies.org for more information.
