Warm Mixed Fruits Breakfast Oats

  December school holiday has finally come to an end and tomorrow it will be a brand new school terms for most of the students. Furthermore I am sure for those parent(s) whom has a child that goes Primary 1 this year, these few days would be a challenging days for both the kid and parents. Take me as an example, I have being worrying for my boy 1st day of school since early December so I guess tomorrow would bound to be an excited and stressful day for both of us.

Since breakfast is a very important meal to start off for the day especially for young school kids. I would like to share with you one of my boy's favourite oatmeal dish that he usually takes in the morning.Perhaps this would add-on some ideas to your usual breakfast list especially in recent cozy rainy seasons too.

Research shows that Daily consumption of a bowl of oatmeal can lower blood cholesterol due to its soluble fiber content. So having a bowl of this quick and easy oatmeal with your desire toppings would be definitely a great choice to start off the day.

Ingredients: (Serve 2)
1/2 Cup Quaker Quickcook Oatmeal
1 1/2 Cups Fresh Milk
1/3 Cup Dried Mixed Fruits and Nuts
2 Tablespoons Honey

1. Place oatmeal and milk in a saucepan and cook over medium low heat.
2. When the mixture comes to boil, keep stirring on and off for 1 minute or until slightly thicken and creamy.
3. Turn off the heat. Rest cooked oatmeal porridge in the saucepan for another 3 minutes to achieve a more smooth and creamy texture.
4. Divide the oatmeal porridge between bowls and top with dried mixed fruits and nuts, drizzle with honey and serve warm.


~ Banana Topping:
1. Place 2 tablespoons of honey and some chopped nuts in a small frying pan and cook it over medium heat for 1 minutes, stirring occasionally.
2. Add banana (1 large banana cut into sliced) in the honey mixture and toss well then serve the cooked oatmeal with banana toppings.

~ Mixed Berries Topping:
1. Place 1/2 cup frozen mixed berries(thawed) and 1 teaspoon brown sugar in a small bowl and mixed well then use it as topping.

But if you prefer something more savory like minced meat or fish porridge, don't worry you could always turn this sweet dish into something unique like one of my "Savory Oatmeal Porridge - 麥片粥". If you are interested to find out more about this recipe you could click this link HERE.
