Apple Almond Grain-free Porridge

AGE APPROPRIATE: One meal + a day
SERVES: 1 adult and one child serving

I have been eating this beautiful grain-free porridge for a few months now, and I love that its a meal I can share with the kids. Safe to have from 6 months of age once introduced to almonds and ghee (allergens). It freezes well or you can keep it in the fridge a few days.

This recipe is from version 2 of our book – Milk to Meals
