I've come back to oats.
Well it's the time of year for a tummy warming bowl of porridgy goodness to start the day. I recently gotten into the habit of leaving a couple of scoops of oats soaking in water in the fridge overnight, this makes the oats creamy rich in their own right without the need for lots of milk. As you can see in this photo they swell nicely and absorb all the water, meaning they are all soft and ready for a quick cook.
Which means every morning all I have to do, is to get it out of the fridge so it can come to room temperature while I sip bleary eyed at my first coffee of the day. Add a splash of my favourite almond mylk, give it all a good stir and breakfast is a four minute blast in the microwave away.
It keeps me full until lunchtime and stops me getting the nibbles mid morning which my previous couple of slices of toast were doing.
What's your favourite Winter breakfast warmer? Alan's is still two poached eggs on toast.
