4. Bake at 140-160 for 15mins
5. Stir and bake for another 15 mins.
6. If the mixture has turned a light brown or golden then it's done. If not, then mix it again and put back into the over for another 15 minutes. Continue until done.

* With this recipe add whatever your family likes. Dried Fruits, Nuts, Nutmeg. If you do add nuts, or other grains, be sure to add them at the start so they go through the soaking phrase. This is a great breakfast for those days when you really don't feel like preparing much, or you have a busy morning and need to get going, with out having to compromise the nutritional content.
