Breakfast in the past wasn’t anything elaborate like the brunch menus we see in the cafes today. It can be as simple as a simple butter toast or a healthy bowl of oatmeal with milk, and we would be all happy and contented.

Here are 2 of our favourite oatmeal recipes with a modern touch, that bring back those nostalgic feelings of the good old childhood days.
