Perfect Oats

Thanks to Kath and this little video here at KathEats I copied her method and toppings and my god it was good! I've got into such a routine with porridge that I'd forgotten just how good something so simple can be!



I cooked 1/3 cup of oats (about 30g) with 1/3 cup water and 1/3 cup Lactofree whole milk (about 75ml of each) and I roughly chopped half a banana into the pot.

Left to cook for around 3-5mins while I toasted 30g of pecan nuts (1 in 30 secs in the microwave, thanks for the tip Kath!) and made my coffee

Once it was almost ready I stirred quite vigorously to break up the banana a bit more and stirred in a bit too much almond extract

For toppings I added the toasted pecan nuts, 1 tsp ground flax and about 10g vanilla pumpkin seeds



Perfection!

  1. Mmm that does look good! When I started making porridge I was following Kath's recipe and was toasting mixed nuts, now I'm lazy and use toasted slivered almonds. I should try to be a litttle more adventurous and at least use different nuts from time to time!
