3 Delicious Ways to Make Oatmeal

Hello Friends,

In today’s post, I’m gonna be sharing with you my 3 go to oatmeal recipe ideas. However, before getting into the explanation part, I’d like to explain to you why I find this dish so perfect.

Most people who have known me for a long time, remember the dieting phase I went through in high school. At that time, oatmeal was one of my favourite breakfasts (sometimes even dinners) to have because oat is  really healthy form of carbs. It keeps your sugar levels at a normal rate for a long time, so you most likely won’t feel that unbearable craving you’d normally feel after pancakes. Since then, I stopped dieting, and I’m kind of aiming for a balanced, fully reformed lifestyle, but oatmeal is still at the top on my list as the best breakfast. Today, I’m showing you my 3 favourite flavours which are the super-berry, the apple-cinnamon and tropical flavoured ones. It’s a super easy recipe that you can mix and match with all kinds of different fruit and nuts. I’m the kinda girl who takes her oatmeal only with milk. I feel like simple water make it unenjoyable but please have it your way by any means. I just prefer a richer taste and a more silky texture. Almond milk is my favourite alternative since I prefer making this dish  vegan. So, without further a due, let’s get into the recipe. 🙂

What you need

For the oatmeal base: 

  • 6,8 ounces of almond milk (2 dl)
  • 4 tbsp of rolled oats

For the super-berry oatmeal: 

  • frozen or fresh mixed berries like strawberries, raspberries, blueberries even blackberries
  • honey or coconut sugar for a sweet flavour
  • dried cranberries

For the apple-cinnamon oatmeal: 

  • one sweet apple, chopped (I used Pink Lady but Golden is great too, just avoid granny smith and the sour kinds for this recipe)
  • 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1 tsp of crunchy peanut butter
  • 1tbsp of brown sugar
  • 1 tsp of honey for the very top

For the tropical oatmeal: 

  • frozen or fresh mangoes, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. of shredded coconuts
  • 1 tsp. of honey

What you do

In a small sauce pan mix together the almond milk and oats. Turn up the heat to medium (7-8 on an a electric cooktop) and keep stirring until your oatmeal thickened. It takes about 7-10 minutes to reach this consistency depending on what oatmeal you use. When it’s ready, turn down the heat on low and add the ingredients of the flavour that you prefer today. If you choose to make the apple-cinnamon flavoured deliciousness you’ll need to caramelise the apples with the brown sugar in a separate pan before adding it to the oatmeal base. 🙂 I hope you’ll make this recipe and it’ll help you create a balanced, joyful morning even on the gloomiest day.

As always I used our Yama kitchenware for presentation which is a compostable, green alternative of common plastic. For more info, click on this link.

See you next Wednesday,

Love and hugs,
