Honey Porridge with Fresh Berries

It's a first! The first time in my entire life that I eat porridge and the first time that I prepared it myself. And yet it has become my favourite Sunday breakfast dish! It's really easy to prepare but with the nice honey and the fresh berries you can pimp the oats a bit. Depending on whether you add the honey immediately to the milk or if you add it later on you'll receive a different type of sweet. I opted the latter version. 

The honey I used comes straight from Bosnia. Honey is probably my favourite food item to bring back from the Balkans. Once you tried it, you will hardly accept any other taste ever again. My favourite still comes from Serbia. A friend's mom knows a honey producer and provides the family with it on a regular basis. I admit, I am jealous. 

No that I have become a big fan of porridge I'll check what options I have to pimp it a little more. I was thinking about nuts. Cashew- or probably hazelnuts and maybe also banana. In any case it's a healthy breakfast and everyone can add what suits him best.

For 4 small bowls you need:

140g oat flakes
350ml hot water
200ml warm milk

fresh berries

Put the oat flakes and the hot water into a saucepan and boil for around 10 minutes. Add the warm milk and cook for 5 more minutes on a middle heat.
Pour the oat-milk mix into small bowls.
Now pour some honey over it and add the fresh berries.
Cut them in two if they're too big and mix with a spoon.
