Warm gooey and full of tummy loving goodness, these oats took less than 90s to prepare. You can prepare your oats overnight and just warm them up, or use a quick oat sachet if you're in a hurry.
I love oats for breakfast in winter. They fill you up warm you from the inside. They are a powerhouse of nutrition loaded with important vitamins, minerals and antioxidant plant compounds. Just 1/2 a cup of oats will give you:
- Manganese: 191% of the RDI
- Phosphorus: 41% of the RDI
- Magnesium: 34% of the RDI
- Copper: 24% of the RDI
- Iron: 20% of the RDI
- Zinc: 20% of the RDI
- Folate: 11% of the RDI
- Vitamin B1 (thiamin): 39% of the RDI
- Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid): 10% of the RDI
- Smaller amounts of calcium, potassium, vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) and vitamin B3 (niacin)*
We had a couple of pears that were looking like they were on their last days so I sliced them up, and jazzed them up with a little burnt honey butter.
Time: 2 mins | Yield: Serves 2
Overnight oats or quick oats sachet
1 tbs honey
1 tbs butter
pinch of cinnamon
Chopped nuts as a garnis
- Cook or warm your overnight oats and transfer to a bowl when ready.
- While that's happening melt some butter and honey in a small pan and add the pear slices when the mixture starts to bubble.
- Sprinkle in a little cinnamon if desired.
- Cook until just golden and the pears start to caramelise.
- Using tongs, transfer the pears on top of your oats and drizzled with a little extra honey. You can top with chopped macadamias or brazil nuts for a little extra protein and good fats.
