Ingredients & Method
1 cup rolled oats
2 cups water
1/8 cup chopped almonds
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1-2 tablespoons milk (optional)
1 tablespoon raisins
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon powder
pinch of crushed cardamom
drizzle of honey
Bring water and almonds to a gentle boil. Add rolled oats, brown sugar, milk and cook on medium heat for 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat. Sprinkle raisins, cinnamon and cardamom and serve with a drizzle of honey.
I serve this for breakfast a couple of times a week. You can always tweak the recipe by adding other toppings such as fresh berries, walnuts or anything you fancy.
Rolled oats porridge may sound old fashioned but it is a wholesome and healthy meal. It’s loaded with B vitamins, iron and manganese. It also provides soluble fiber which helps reduce cholesterol. And best of all, it is sodium and cholesterol free.
