O is for Oats

Cant bare getting out of bed in the morning for fear of freezing in mid-air? Staying an extra 10 minutes in the shower to let your bones thaw out? So many layers of clothes that you look like an Eskimo with just two eyes peering out of your coat? Yup, its Winter again! This explains why I am suddenly craving good old Rolled Oats (Porridge) for breakfast. However.. in the good old days I would dose my Oats up with Brown Sugar and Creamy Milk, or fruity Yoghurt, sometimes even Cream! This year I've ditched the Dairy and Sugar and come up with a couple of incredibly tasty toppings. Hope you enjoy them as much as me!

Rolled Oats with Apple, Almond and Cinnamon
      -Stew diced Apple in 1cm Water in a saucepan
       -Once soft stir into cooked Oats and sprinkle with Almond pieces and Cinnamon

Blueberry and Honey Oats
      -Half cook oats then remove from microwave. Stir in frozen or dried Blueberries
      -Cook Oats for remainder of time and stir Manuka Honey through while warm

Banana Berry Oats
       -Defrost Berries by placing in microwave for 30seconds
       -Stir sliced Banana and Berries through cooked Oats

Sultana and Cardamom Spiced Oats  
       -Cook oats with Cardamom and a dash of Vanilla Essence
       -Stir through Sultanas and serve with a dash of Almond Milk
Happy Winter Feasting! Have you got any favourite Oats recipes?
