Whenever you see a * next to the letters in the symbols, this indicates that recipes can be adapted to suit this dietary requirement. Please take care and look for the substitutions listed in the ingredients. This is especially important for parents looking to introduce cow’s milk and other milk products like oat or soya (soy) milk.
Whole nuts are a choking hazard before the age of 5, which is why flaked and crushed nuts have been used in this recipe. You can use whole nuts to make this granola too, just ensure you blitz or crush with a rolling pin before serving to younger children.
To make this granola suitable for children under the age of 3, spoon half (or as much as you wish) of the granola into a food processor and blitz on full power for a couple of minutes until the nuts, oats and raisins have turned to a powder. If your child is toddler age and can handle a little more texture, just briefly pulse the granola until the nuts have broken into smaller pieces.
To serve, stir through yogurt or milk of your choice, and serve with fruit on the side. You can sprinkle the blitzed baby version over porridge or cereals for an extra hit of goodness.
