I like the old fashioned oats as they have a fuller flavour and are healthier. You can eat this as a raw meal or make it into regular porridge. As they take longer to cook; I often soak them overnight but you do not have to.
1/3 cup old fashioned oats (rolled oats can be used) 1 cup water 2 Tbsp sultanas Pinch of salt 1/2 – 1 tsp cinnamon 1 tsp honey 1 Tbsp coconut oil (or shredded coconut if eating uncooked)
Put oatmeal, water and sultanas in a cereal bowl.
Let them sit over night.
In the morning add a little salt, shredded coconut and cinnamon.
Enjoy your simple already made breakfast.
Put oatmeal, water and sultanas in a saucepan.
Let them sit over night; if you can.
In the morning add a little salt.
Bring to a boil then turn heat down and simmer, stirring frequently till thick, adding more water if necessary.
Done this way, it is as fast as quick cooking oats and the bonus is the sultanas are plumb and juicy.
Pour into a cereal bowl.
On top put coconut oil and honey, then sprinkle cinnamon.
Eat your warm oatmeal porridge.
If you did not get around to soaking overnight: Simply put oatmeal, water and sultanas in a saucepan, bring to a boil, turn heat down and simmer, stirring frequently till thick, adding more water if necessary. Serve with extras on top.
