Wholesome fruit & nut oatmeal


1 cup old fashioned rolled oats

2 cups water/ 1 ½  cups milk ( if you can drink milk by itself once in a day then just cook oats in water)

1 apple cut into bite size pieces

5 to 6 almonds cut into small pieces

2 to 3 walnuts cut into small pieces

½ cup raisins

2 to 3 dry figs (Indian name: Anjeer), cut into small pieces

Pinch of cinnamon powder and cardamom powder


Take water/ milk in a pan and put it on heat. As you see some bubbles add the oatmeal, stirring continuously. As you see the oats starting to cook, add the apples. Cook for about 3 to 5 more minutes, stirring continuously to avoid oats from sticking to the pan. Once the oats are cooked (it will look little swollen and mushy), turn off the gas and add rest of the ingredients and mix well.


A “deliciously nutritious” breakfast is ready. 😛

Note: Add as many fruits as you wish. I usually add banana and either strawberries or blueberries to mine. 🙂

Those of you watching your weight- try to avoid banana
