Honey-Nut Oatmeal

Honey-Nut Oatmeal

(1 serving)    Printable Version
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • handful of mixed nuts (chopped almonds or pecans or any nuts)
  • a couple good squirts of squeeze honey
  • good pinch of salt
  • 1 banana
  • soy milk or normal milk (about 2 cups)
I liked this recipe, but I thought honey-roasting the nuts was a bit of overkill - especially considering every other aspect of the recipe takes less than 5 minutes. The oatmeal is plenty sweet if you drizzle honey at the end and you get a nice crunch from the nuts without roasting them. If have the time, go for it. But if you want a tasty and QUICK healthy breakfast, just skip that step. This recipe can also act as a suggestion to liven up packets of oatmeal. Just make 2 packets as directed and then add the chopped banana, honey and nuts. This recipe made a fairly large serving which kept me feeling full for about 4 hours.

How To Make Honey-Nut Oatmeal

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.

Put grease proof paper on a baking tray.

Combine all the nuts with the honey (make sure they are fully coated. Add the salt and spread on the grease proof paper and bake for up to 15 minutes.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool and solidify.

Place oatmeal in a bowl and cover fully with milk.

Heat in the microwave until cooked (approx 2 min) - stirring once mid-way.

When cooked, chop a banana into very small pieces and stir through the oatmeal. Add the nuts. Drizzle with honey or maple syrup. Serve with a splash of milk if desired.
