Hot oatmeal with dried tropical fruits, almonds and honey

One day I was sick and tired, had no breakfast and was unhappy at all. My husband needed some magic too, so we went at Starbucks and found, what they had hot breakfast menu. Oh, Perfect Oatmeal, you saved my life, and also, more importantly, made the day.

Of course I knew about oatmeal (porridge) before. But in my childhood, all hot cereals was very heavy because of the milk and butter. So I found that my stomach likes a light version of oatmeal and since then cook it myself at home.


1 cup water or milk
1/2 cup uncooked oats (such as Quaker®)
2 tbsp cup chopped tropical fruits (papaya, mango, pineapple)
1 tbsp golden raisins
1 tsp sliced almond
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)
1 tsp honey


Bring water to a boil. Pour boiling water over oats and let stand, covered for several minutes. You can cook the oats and old-fashioned way: add the oats and return to boil. Lower heat to medium and cook for one minute for quick oats. Old fashioned oats will take about 5 minutes, or cook until most of liquid is absorbed

Take off from heat, if found too thick, a little milk may be stirred in.  Meanwhile chop the dried fruits if needed. Serve hot with fruits, almonds and honey on top. With big cup of hot tea.
