Healthy oat breakfast with Currants.

Total Time
Prep 1 min
Cook 2 mins

I enjoy this healthy fast breakfast about 4 times a week. Oats are very healthy and this uses currants for sweetness rather than sugar. If you are used to eating very sweet oatmeal it will take a while to adjust to the flavour but once you have, you won't look back!


  1. Combine ingredients in a microwave safe bowl.
  2. Microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds on high.
  3. Stir and microwave another twenty seconds.
  4. Stir and enjoy!
  5. You may need to adjust the cooking times according to your microwave and'doneness' preferences.

Love this with the milk (though I did use skim as it is all I have). I used dates instead of currants and you are right, it gave it a nice sweetness without added sugar. It did, for my taste, make a very small bowl of oatmeal. But I will probably make again! Thanks.

YUMMY! I had this for breakfast today and I LOVED it! I did substitute the currants with raisins, though. Thanks for sharing! I am going to make this as often as I can! Very yummy, indeed!
