Yes I know, porridge. I really am not trying to invent the wheel and I am not trying to be smart, I just want you to know that this was delicious.
There are around 60 days of chilly weather ahead and some cracking strawberries coming into season. So you will have time to try this. Look away if you are lucky enough to be in amongst beautiful summer weather, because here, in southern Australia, we have porridge weather. Strawberries were so cheap this week I was brazen enough to poach them in some maple syrup to eat with the organic oats I had in the cupboard from Kialla Pure Foods, in Queensland. It really makes a difference to use lovely oats. Processed porridge in little sachets is definitely not worth eating. Am I lecturing you? Sorry.
Any way. Just in case you need some breakfast inspiration, I’ve got it here. You could try making these oats with raspberries or bananas if you wanted. I added apricots and some crunchy muesli bits with nuts.
- 250 gm strawberries cut in half. 1 punnet
- 80 ml maple syrup 1/4 cup
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 250 ml milk 1 cup
- 625 ml water 2 1/2 cups
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 4 whole apricots split in half
- 1/2 cup muesli crunchy with nuts
Maybe breakfast isn’t your oat thing. What about this great Muesli slice from the archives?
