This Jamaican oats porridge recipe is simple to prepare and the end result is delicious

There seems to be this great fascination with oats (oatmeal) that one can only wonder why so many people swear by this Jamaican porridge. Maybe it's the easy preparation time or the end result, which is tasty and filling. Whatever it is though, it gives this porridge an edge over some of the other porridges.

Oats is regarded as one of Jamaica’s premier health foods. It is a regular part of MOST Jamaican's diet, especially sports men and women. It is also an easy breakfast menu item that is enjoyed by many children before having a full day at school...

...Easier than preparing toast and eggs if you are running late in the mornings.

It is a very good source of fiber nutrient that keeps you feeling full for about 3 hours after it is consumed.

Just eat a medium sized bowl of Oats (oatmeal) porridge in the morning and drink a tall glass of water and you see how long you feel full throughout the day.

It is also used as an aphrodisiac in many local drinks that are responsible to “put it back.” Well so they say, especially the men! These drinks are usually homemade and are filled with the mixer's desired additional ingredients.

Well, without further delay, here is the Recipe for the Jamaican Oats (Oatmeal) Porridge!
