Oatmeal with Oriental Twist


With 3 days of Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebration & festivities, I’m feeling rather lazy today. So this post is specially reserved for occasion like this. A short & sweet post about my breakfast oatmeal variation or creation.

I discovered or created this oatmeal variation after I posted my Banana Oatmeal recipe. With my usual oatmeal, I top it with loads of fresh fruits, nuts, seeds, peanut butter, grated coconut, jam/fruit preserve.

Then the big AHA moment.. why not use some Chinese Herbal ingredients?

DRUMROLL… here I present my Oriental Oatmeal

Put a handful of Dried Red Dates (Jujube), WolfberryΒ / Gojiberry, Dried Figs & Dried Longan to cook with oats & milk. Top with more dates, wolfberry, figs & longan..

Nom nom nom..

For complete oatmeal recipe, refer to my Banana Oatmeal post.

Well maybe someone have already thought of this before, but I’m happy as a bunny when I discover this πŸ˜› Share with me if you have other variations πŸ™‚

Just As Delish, or even betterΒ 


  1. Ping: Yes it’s a bit unusual, but i love it πŸ™‚

    Sylvia: Not everyone like the same things.. sometimes i snack on these chinese herbs, my chinese medicine shop owner thought me this trick, chinese healthy snacks πŸ™‚

  2. I like chinese herbs and i like oatmeal but i’m not too sure if i’ll like them together! haha i definitely love banana oatmeal though! πŸ˜‰

  3. Now this is unusual. I love my herbal soups but have never attempted herbal oatmeal. Looks interesting tho.

  4. So interesting. Somehow I thought it was going to be savory, but these ingredients sweetish, very eclectic.

  5. Looks wonderful! Thanks for sharing.

  6. looks yummy! never attempt this in oatmeal before … good idea!
