Quantities for 1 adult. Half portions for children.
- 1 cup jumbo organic oats
- 1/4 cup ground almonds
- a few dates and dried apricots, chopped
- 1.5-2 teaspoons almond extract (this is what gives it the kick)
- 1 cup of boiling water, poured over all of the above
Leave to sit for 1-2 minutes. Add a small chopped banana, a droozle of honey or syrup, and if you’re strange like me, some chia gel from the fridge.
Because when it is “Midsummer” and freezing outside with driving wind and rain, and your kids have eaten all the cherry-and-berry spelt pancakes, you need something cosy for breakfast!
