I got up this morning, made myself a coffee, checked the newest snaps, poured my oats in a pot, cooked myself some oatmeal … and soon I was such a happy person. Seriously. Oatmeal is the best start to a day! And as I have oats every single morning and definitely couldn’t live without them, I thought it’s time to post a recipe – at last! Or actually it was someone on Instagram asking me for my basic recipe – so here it comes! Even though it’s not a revolutionising recipe or anything, just a very simple but dangerously delicious and addictive one.
500 ml water
1 cup oats
pinch of salt
- Place the oats and the water in a large pan over a medium heat.
- Add a tiny pinch of salt and stir with a spoon.
- Bring to a steady simmer for 5 to 6 minutes, stirring as often as you can to give you smooth creamy oatmeal – if you like your porridge runnier, simply add a splash more milk or water until you’ve got the consistency you like.
That’s it – easy peasy! As in the pictures above, you can top it with any fruit or berries. Another of my favourites goes like this: put water and oats in a pot and while they are cooking, stir in half a banana (chopped into little slices). Add some peanut butter and cinnamon and later top it with more banana slices and peanut butter – absolutely amazing!
What do you like to put in or on your oatmeal?
