Did you know that you can cook delicious recipes with Gerber Baby Foods? Yes, you sure can and they work out so beautifully! Now, stick around too because I am giving away a $50 gift card too!
This past week I decided to combine Gerber Oatmeal Cereal along with their Mixed Berry Yogurt to make this wonderful Berry Oatmeal Bread. This bread literally lasted about 24 hours in our home. My son kept asking me for more, the entire household loved it and they never would have guessed that I used baby food.
Honestly, I wish I would have thought to use baby food in recipes many years ago, especially when my daughter was younger. The Gerber Cereal is fine enough that it works wonderfully and helps me skip grinding up oats to put into recipes. It’s a great addition to smoothies too.
Gerber offers 4 different types of cereals, Single-Grain, Multi-Grain, Oatmeal & Banana, or Lil’ Bits Oatmeal Banana Strawberry. I decided to use single-grain for this bread; however, multi-grain would be a great option as well.
There are so many reasons why this is a great option for baking with and one is that it’s iron-fortified. I can expect to get a great serving of iron when I use the cereal and it has Vitablocks blend of B Vitamins, Vitamins E and C, iron, zinc, and calcium. By using the cereal it allows me to get lots of nutrients into my family.
I’m going to help you get started too by giving away this $50 gift card!
Immediately as I keep seeing berries come into season, I knew that we needed a little Berry Oatmeal Bread in our lives. I mixed strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries to create this bread paired with yogurt and cereal. It was a delightful treat either for breakfast for a snack throughout the day. My daughter was even able to try it as she is finally growing out of her strawberry sensitivity that we discovered when she was a baby.

I’m thinking I just might enjoy eating as cereal, with added fruit, nuts etc. I like cream of wheat, and seems like this would be a similar texture but with oats instead.
