This homemade oatmeal recipe uses rolled oats spiced with cinnamon, cardamom, and cashews. Add milk and butter and take your breakfast oatmeal to another level.
Also known as porridge, these spiced instant rolled oats make a hearty breakfast or treat that will warm you up on a cold winter morning. If you live anywhere in the cold climates, this is a great way to start the day.
The flavors of cinnamon and cardamom add a pleasing scent and the cashews give this porridge a nice amount of crunch. It is sweetened with a bit of honey or sugar.
This breakfast recipe is quick, easy, and ready to eat in about 5 minutes. It doesn’t get much simpler than that!
I want to thank David from Australia for taking the time to submit this recipe. I made it and it was delicious! What a great idea to add cashews, as I would not have thought about adding nuts into the oatmeal, but is tastes wonderful and was very pleased with the result.
When David submitted this recipe, I had to look up what a knob of butter meant, as it was a term I was unfamiliar with. A knob of butter is roughly 2 Tablespoons, give or take a bit. You can adjust the amount of butter to your liking.
If you do not have cardamom, you can just omit it from the recipe, but I did find it added a nice flavor to the oatmeal.
