Shortened version of Jamie Oliver’s Pukkolla

I’ve tried Jamie Oliver’s recipe for Pukkolla and it’s great if 1) you’ve sweet berries available 2) you have enough time to do the grating (apples) and mashing (the bananas are SO much better mashed than sliced). See image below.

Jamie Oliver's Pukkolla. My shortened version looks just like this without the berries and bananas! =P

However after trying several variations, I realized simplicity is still best! After all, why put in all the effort and spend more if it tastes even better without? Here’s my simplified version:

  • 8 large handfuls of organic rolled oats (used whole grain rolled oats)
  • 2 large handfuls of ground bran (used oat bran)
  • 1 handful of chopped dried raisins
  • Another handful of chopped dried fruit (any berry will do or even dried mangoes)
  • 1 handful of crumbled walnuts/unsalted roasted cashews
  • 1 handful of smashed or chopped almonds, hazelnuts or brazil nuts (or any other nut)
  1. Mix em all together in an airtight container (this is good for about a month)
  2. For breakfast the next few days, place a few servings in a container (I use Lock & Lock’s glass container with lid) and add milk just to cover
  3. Place in the fridge overnight
  4. Next day, take out the amount you need and put the rest back in the fridge, it keeps for 2 or 3 days.
  5. To serve: It will be a little thick so add more milk and enjoy!

This is so much better than any store-bought cereal or muesli I’ve ever had!

  1. […] of cashews. Cashews are a famous local product of Phuket. I use them for making banana bread and pukkolla, instead of walnuts. Check out the cashew shopping we did and the  factory store we bought them in […]

  2. Do you like Banana ?
