My Favorite Breakfast: Oatmeal With Dried Fruits & Nuts

If you've been on my blog for a while or follow me on Instagram you probably already know that my absolute favorite breakfast is oatmeal. But not the regular boring one! I like to add lots of cool ingredients to it to make my oatmeal super yummy. Most of the time I do my favorite combination, which is Cinnamon Raisin Oatmeal, but recently I decided to experiment a little bit and I ended up with the perfect topping for my oatmeal, which I wanna share with you today. And trust me, once you try this recipe, you may never wanna come back to eating these nasty cookies or muffins.

You'll need:
- 1/2 cup of rolled oats
- 1/2 cup of water
- 1/2 cup of milk
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 handful of raisins
- 1 tsp of honey
- a dash of cinnamon

- chopped nuts (I used hazelnuts)
- 2 dried apricots
- 2 dried prunes
- a dash of shredded coconut

1. Pour 1/2 cup of water and 1/2 cup of milk in a pan. Then slice up one half of the banana and mash with the fork another one. Once the mixture is boiling, add your oats, mashed banana, raisins, honey and some cinnamon. Stir everything together and cook for about 5 min (or look at the directions on the package of your oats). 

2. Now it's time for the best part - the topping! I'd say that you can add whatever you want, but this is just the combination I've found to be perfect. I put on top of my oatmeal some sliced banana, a few chopped nuts, dried apricots, dried prunes and sprinkled some shredded coconut on top.

And here we go, the perfect oatmeal is ready to eat! Enjoy! ♡

Thanks for reading!
