For years now I've eaten porridge for breakfast:-
5 spoonfuls of rolled oats
1 spoonful of oatbran
1/2 a spoonful of high fibre mix
1 spoonful of ground linseed & sesame seeds
All into a saucepan, just cover with water, put a lid on and soak overnight.
In the morning add a splash of milk, mix and simmer for a couple of minutes.
Serve sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. Sometimes I add chopped dried fruit to the mix.
Just last week, I spotted a new flavour in the pre-packaged oats range.
I don't usually buy these as the texture in the past has been "gluey", but I wanted to taste this berry flavour.
The cooked (microwaved) result is a smaller portion in my bowl, yet still quite filling.
I wondered just how much rolled oats was in the mix....
So I got out my favourite little machine.....
I spooned in 5 dessertspoons of rolled oats, ground them and poured the almost-powdered oats into a container.
So now I've also bought Craisins and a packet of almond slivers.
It will be a nice change from the chopped dried apricots and dates that I usually add in.
