Thanks to @yummy_little_belly for this spooktacular recipe! 

12+ Months

For the porridge:

40g porridge oats
120ml milk of choice 
50g pumpkin purée 
1 teaspoon almond butter 
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder

For the topping:

1 banana 
Sugar free chocolate chips/raisins 
Babease pouch 
(or use our Boonana Pops recipe)

  1. Place the porridge, milk, puree, almond butter and cinnamon powder in a saucepan over a medium heat and cook for 8-10 minutes until creamy (add more milk if necessary), stirring regularly.
  2. Cut the banana in half lengthways, through the centre. Then cut one piece in half to form 2 pieces.
  3. Place the banana pieces on the porridge, rounded side up. Add chocolate chips/raisins to form the eyes and mouth.
  4. Squeeze some of the Babease pouch at the bottom of the banana ghosts and use the rest to make the dots. Place the raisins, blueberries or edible eyes (for over 12 months) on the dots to make the monsters.
  5. Serve and enjoy!
