two breakfast recipes with oats
My two favorite ways to have oats for breakfast. These are both fast, delicious, and good for you.
Cook oats in slightly salted boiling water. The better the texture the longer it takes to cook. Steel cut takes 30 minutes but tastes the best, thick rolled takes about 15 minutes, and instant rolled takes about 2 minutes.
Put a nonstick pan on medium heat. For two servings add 1/2 cup of milk and one ripe banana. Non-dairy milk works too. Mash and mix the banana and milk. Take it off the heat just before it boils.
Add oatmeal to bowl and pour some banana cream on top.
Add crushed walnuts
Add honey or skip it if you want to cut calories
Add dried cranberries or fresh berries if you have them.
If you want to take it up a level try Gordon Ramsay’s recipe for spice baked porridge.
Put yogurt in a bowl
Add apple juice
Add about 2/3 of the oats you plan on eating. Mix everything. Then add the remaining 1/3. This gives you different textures.
Put the bowl in the freezer or fridge to get extra cold.
Put a pan on high heat. Add sliced almonds. Move them around and don’t let them burn.
Clean some fresh fruit. Blackberries are great.
Get the bowl out. Add your toasted almonds and fruit.
As you can tell I like to get recipes from Gordon Ramsay videos. They are short and easy to follow. When it’s something I end up making several times I often write it down. But before that I’ll watch his videos on fast-forward for reminders.
If you forget how to make french toast try his cinnamon eggy bread video.
