Oats Porridge with Almonds and Dates

This is an another healthy breakfast with a combination of oats, alomnds and dates with lots of fibre, iron and other vitamins and minerals. No artificial sweetners. A Highland hero for centuries, oats are the healthy, slow energy-release cereal that gets digested easily for any one. You can use any variety, either rolled or crushed, still have all the nutrients. Powdered one is used to make instant porridge. I like the traditional, thick, whole oat flakes.
Oats porridge with dates and almonds
½ cup oatmeal
8 – 10 pitted dates
1 Large pinch cinnamon pwd
1 tbsp raisins (optional)
5-6 almonds soaked overnight
1 cup water
1 cup Milk
Oats, Pitted dates, Almonds and milk

Bring water to a boil, add oats and cook till the oats are half done. Add milk, pitted dates and cinnamon powder and cook until they are completely done.
Add chopped almonds and raisins and turn off heat and serve warm.
Dates not only gives nice taste but also loads of health benefits.
