Creamy Breakfast Oats Porridge with Nuts, Raisans & Honey Caramelized Apples


In our house we love to have oats porridge for breakfast atleast once a week. Hubby loves it too..I make it each time with my little twist to it, like this orangy oats porridge. That was one of my favorite recipe. Couple of days back i decided to make oats for breakfast, i was thinking how to make it this time differently. I was searching my fridge to see what i have to put in my oats. I found some juicy apples lying in the fridge.AHA got an idea.



I decided to caramelize the apples and throw in the oats. I decided to caramelize the apples in some brown sugar, but when i found a bottle of honey lying in my pantry for so many months, I decided to use that for my caramelizing process.

Finally i achieved the right amount of caramelization on my apples, i added some walnuts, raisans and some fresh apples for some crunch.


This porridge has the correct amount of crunchiness, creaminess and sweetness to this dish. 

There is something so refreshing about the plain ol simple oats porridge having some crunchy bits of fruits in it. So next time when you are whipping some porridge for yourselves add some fruits and nuts in it, you will surely love it.

Ingredients:

Now take a frying pan. Drizzle some honey in it and heat it up, now sprinkle a touch of cinnamon powder and bring it to a boil.

When it gets to bubble up, add half of the apples to it and toss well.Let it cook for a couple of mins.
