This may not look appealing but my 5 month old loooooooves this.
Use any fruit you like! I posted my Apple and Pear version earlier this week. 
This can be freezed as it thaws and reheats nicely. I’d needed add a few drops of cooled boiled water when reheating to thin it slightly. 
The consistency can be easily thinned with a little cooled boiled water or thickened with more oat cereal. Each baby’s preference on consistency can differ. Tweak this to suit your baby. 
You can cook the oat cereal and fruit all at once but I find it goes too gluggy. 
I make batches of oat cereal at a time to prevent needing to blitz the oats first each time. See my Oat Cereal recipe here.
This made 6 small containers worth of porridge.
