How To Make Oats Taste Better: Warm Granola Recipe

Breakfast on weekdays was always rushed. Our school was located approximately 30 km from home so we had to be up early in order to be ready for school and have time for breakfast. Winter time was the hardest –to get up-especially with the frost. We had to walk a short distance from the house in order to get to the bus stop-braving the winter frost in anklet socks did require some courage. For breakfast we usually ate toast, or buttered bread or bread with jam or with peanut butter, mealie meal porridge, oats or shop bought cereals. Amma would have breakfast ready while we put on our school uniforms.

How To Make Oats Taste Better

On Most Saturdays Amma would make warm oats or mealie meal porridge. I preferred my porridge sweet with milk and sugar while Amma and my sisters preferred Chutney.

This warm Granola recipe was inspired by Amma’s oat porridge and my husband’s method of preparing oats. I love oats porridge but I sometimes find it too messy-especially since I often cook mine in a microwave and it ends up spilling.

This 'Granola' like  recipe definitely makes oats taste better and is very simple-using just a few basic ingredients, if not just plain oats. You can also add raisins, nuts or chopped fruit. Most store bought Granola contains excess sugar and other additives. Making your own gives you control over what ingredients to use and if you are counting calories you can also use appropriate ingredients.  This recipe serves 2 people.
  • ½ cup oats
  • 1 teaspoon honey (optional)
  • Plain yogurt (or desired flavour)
  • Optional: you can also add raisins, coconut or chopped fruit)
1. Heat a non stick pan on medium heat. Add oats. Toast until light brown.

2. Add honey. Mix so the oats don’t burn.
