This is my weekend breakfast and look forward to it all week 🙂 It’s also one I make for any friends who happen to stay over. It seems to work every time. No complaints so far.
I originally found this recipe in a weight watchers recipe book my mum had. I’ve pretty much stuck to the recipe, however there may be a few tweaks here and there.
The great thing about oatmeal is that its filled with essential vitamins, it’s an excellent source of soluble fibre. It wonderfully slows down your digestive system making you feel fuller for longer. Perfect if you are trying to watch what you eat.
Also, The options of preparing oats are endless. I like to keep it simple. I don’t like overdoing it with mountains of mixed dried fruit as, for me, it spoils the goodness. What I have been doing lately is adding fresh/frozen blueberries, just before the oats come to the boil. Another power food I can’t seem to get enough of. They don’t overpower, but offer small subtly flavoured bubbles, which delightfully pop in your mouth with almost every bite.
Give them a go.
If you have any other variations you need to share, please leave a comment. I will take any excuse to make a bowl of oats.
This one is for you Sofie x
quantities for 1 serving.
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp cinnamon
a few raisins
drizzle honey to taste
1. add oatmeal, water and milk to the pan
2. turn heat to medium and stir continuously
3. add cinnamon.
4. Bring to the boil stir and watch it thicken.
5. When its bubbling and nice and thick but still soupy turn off the heat and pour into a bowl
6. Chop your banana on the top then sprinkle the raisins.
7. If, like me you have a big sweet tooth drizzle a little honey to finish.
Variation : Instead of banana grate 1/2 an apple and add it to the oatmeal when cooking.
