Oatmeal is an excellent start to the day. It’s full of energy and it keeps you full until lunchtime. On top of that, it’s just about the most cost-efficient start to the day there is. The trouble is, it tastes pretty bland on its own.
Luckily, there are plenty of quick and easy ways to make a hot bowl of porridge tasty and enticing. Here are some of our favorites.
Fruit and Nuts
Adding banana to porridge makes it taste thicker and creamier, and a handful of fruits and nuts will add delicious flavors and give you added nutrients. A spoonful of cinnamon is also a tasty tip if you want to spice things up.
Fruit and Peanut Butter
You don’t need to have a fruit bowl of exotic fruits to make your porridge taste yummy. Sliced banana and a handful of berries should do the trick. Oh, and don’t forget a spoonful of peanut butter. Not only does it go wonderfully with porridge, it contains healthy fats to give you energy for the day.
If you like to get your sugar kick in the morning, why not add some coacoa powder to your porridge? This sweet recipe is delicious and is much healthier than you might think.
You don’t need to stick to sweet flavors for your morning bowl. We love this pumpkin and egg recipe for a protein-packed and delicious start to the day.
And if you aren’t convinced by any of these hot dishes, you can always just add a handful of oats to your favorite smoothie bowl. You’ll get all the energy and nutrients and won’t even realize its there.
