    Will make this for my 10-month old, using milled seeds and almond butter instead of whole seeds and nuts. Thanks!

    i had that for my supper just yesterday, and the other day LOL, I love savoury foods. My other half cannot understand how I can mix oats(I use groats), peanut butter, fish or cottage cheese and sour cabbage (fermented cabbage) on top of that, but it just is SO DELIGHTFUL!
