Coconut Mango Oat Breakfast Bites

These Coconut Mango Oat Breakfast Bites are sure to be a hit with the kids. Make the night before for a super quick, on the go breakfast.

For a family that doesn’t eat / like porridge for breakfast, we certainly manage to get through a lot of oats. For some reason, if oats are cooked in a cookie, muffin or tray bake format, or rolled into balls then my kids think they taste way better. I’m happy enough with that as I think oats are a great start to the day. It is easy, however, when making breakfast in this way to add a ton of extra sugar. Cookies, oat bars and muffins are supposed to be sweet, right? This is fair enough when they are occasional treats but if you are serving them as breakfast then you are just starting the day on a sugar load. Not something I want.

So, if you are looking for something deliciously sweet then I wouldn’t bother making these Coconut Mango Oat Breakfast Bites. That isn’t what you are going to get. However, if you are looking for a different, yet healthy, way to serve oats in the morning then look no further.

Perhaps your kids are bored of porridge, maybe you are looking for something a little less messy, perhaps you are doing BLW (baby-led weaning) or maybe, like me, your kids haven’t taken to porridge but you still want to serve them healthy oats in the morning. Whatever the reason I hope you enjoy these.

These coconut mango oat breakfast bites are a great start to the day. Sweetened only with fruit. Great for BLW (Baby led weaning) and lunch box friendly.

These Coconut Mango Oat Breakfast Bites do contain some raisins as I felt that it did need a little bit of extra sweetness. I do often leave them out though and the boys are happy enough to eat it. It’s up to you if you add them. If you think your kids will need a little more sweetness then add a little more. You could even add some other dried fruit.

Soak the raisins while preparing the rest of the recipe. This stops them from burning as I have mentioned in previous recipes.
