Ingredients Oatmeal with Fruit and Nuts Recipe
|1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats|
|2 cups water or non-dairy milk|
|1 banana, sliced (and/or add berries)|
|1/4 cup chopped nuts (such as walnuts or almonds)|
|1/4 cup dried fruit (such as raisins or cranberries)|

Instructions Oatmeal with Fruit and Nuts
Begin by combining the rolled oats and water or non-dairy milk in a pot. The choice of liquid will determine the creaminess and richness of your oatmeal, allowing you to customize your breakfast experience.
Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to a gentle simmer. Cook the oats for 5-10 minutes, or until they become tender and the liquid has thickened into a luscious, velvety consistency.
As the oats cook, their natural, earthy aroma will fill your kitchen, signaling that it's time to prepare the star toppings for your oatmeal.
Once the oatmeal has reached the desired consistency, carefully divide it between two bowls, creating a warm and inviting canvas for your flavorful fruit and nut medley.
Artfully arrange the sliced banana over each bowl of oatmeal, adding a burst of natural sweetness and a touch of tropical charm.
Sprinkle the chopped nuts of your choice (walnuts, almonds, or any other favorites) over the oatmeal, providing a delightful crunch that contrasts beautifully with the creamy oats and tender banana slices.
Scatter a generous handful of dried fruit (raisins, cranberries, or any other favorites) over each bowl, adding a touch of chewy, fruity goodness that will excite your taste buds.
To finish, dust each bowl with a light sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg, infusing the dish with a warm, aromatic essence that will perfectly complement the symphony of flavors and textures.
And there you have it – a bowl of heavenly Oatmeal with Fruit and Nuts, ready to nourish your body and awaken your senses. Enjoy this delicious, heartwarming breakfast as you embark on your day, and revel in the satisfaction of having crafted a meal that is as wholesome and nutritious as it is delightful and inspiring.
