Oatmeal with Pomegranate and Walnuts


I love oatmeal this time of year something so comforting holding a nice warm bowl on the cool mornings and its so good for you, loaded with soluble fiber to keep cholesterol in check. If a meal was to be called heart heathy this would be one with the potassium in the pomegranate great for lowering blood pressure, the omega 3 in the walnuts for an optimal lipid profile and did I mention the most important part it tastes great. It was my birthday the morning I made this and I thought what the heck lets have oatmeal in a golden tea cup for fun, it felt kind of special. 


Ingredients:

Makes a bowl (I filled my teacup and gave some to the kids :-0)
  • 1/2 cup of oatmeal 
  • one cup of  2% milk 
  • one tablespoon of maple syrup 
  • a handful of walnuts
  • a handful of pomegranate 
  • a pinch of brown sugar 
Method:

  1. microwave the oatmeal with milk for 2 minutes and stir
  2. then give another 30 sec- one minute, until soft, I use quick oats, steel cut on the stove top are better but this is still ok in my dietitian book :-) 
  3. stir in maple syrup and top with pomegranate and walnuts and brown sugar 




Have a great weekend everyone, and go on use a special bowl, cup or plate don't wait enjoy them today :-) 

Hugs

  1. This looks delicious Rebecca - and a belated happy birthday! I love steel-cut oats but seldom have time to prepare them in the morning. I've been experimenting with making them in my slow cooker overnight and it works really well. So good to come down to the kitchen and have a healthy, delicious breakfast all ready and waiting. I'll be scattering it with pomegranates and walnuts tomorrow!
