GOOD OLD FASHIONED OATS FOR BREAKFAST

Sumptious!

Comforting!

Say goodbye to oatmeal packets and start making your very own oats at home. It is simple and easy to prepare, I promise…much cheaper in the long run and more delicious! It is customizable, you decide how to make it and what oatmeal toppings you prefer.

Let’s get cooking!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice ( I used unsweetened almond milk)
  • a pinch of salt

For the topping:

  • 1 large apple
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp water

Instructions:

  1. In a small saucepan, bring milk and water to a boil. Reduce to a low flame and add in oats.
  2. Cook until oats are soft and most of the liquid has been absorbed, stirring occasionally. Remove oats from the heat, cover and allow to stand for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Now for the stewed fruit, peel, core and chop apple. In another saucepan, add chopped apple , nutmeg, cinnamon and water. Bring to a simmer. Stew the apples until soft.

Assembly:

Stir in the stewed apple. Thin with some more milk , if desired. Serve warm.

Additional toppings to boost flavour: (optional)

  • Seeds, I used a mix of pumpkin seeds, sunflower, flax and chia seeds. You could also use any nut or seed butter.
  • Nuts, I used blanched almonds. Pecans or walnuts are also perfect.
  • Sweetner, Maple syrup, honey, agave nectar, brown sugar, I did not add any, as I prefer the natural sweetness from the apples.
  • Spices, cardamom, nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin spice

Enjoy!
