Oats Like Gran Used To Make

I have been a huge fan of Oats/ Oatmeal/ Porridge ever since my great gran introduce it to my sister and I; when I was about 6 years old. My sister Rachel didn’t take to it, but its been one of my go-to breakfast options ever since.

It’s quick, easy and a sweet way to start the day.

Oats Recipe

This recipe makes 1 serving.

  • 1/2 cup of oats
  • 1/2 cup of milk (I use 2% or Almond milk)
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1/2 or 3/4 tsp salt (depending on your taste preference. I suggest using 1/2 tsp first and if more salt is needed add the additional 1/4 tsp. I use 3/4 tsp of salt)
  • 2 -3 tbl sp brown sugar (again depending on your preference, I use 3)
  1. Β Add milk, water and oats to a small saucepan. Then add cinnamon, essence, salt and sugar, mix together and let it simmer on medium heat until oats are soft. Keep stirring until desired texture, I like mineΒ  with a good set of liquid i.e. not too thick.
  2. And that’s it! Easy peasy breakfast.
  3. Optional: I like to garnish my oatmeal with my favorite fruits such as blueberries and strawberries.
