I am a fan of quick, and if it can be hearty, even better. Especially when you need to scale 7 days of breakfasts with 3 people in the house, it’s helpful to turn to porridge and smoothies. One of our other staples has been boiled eggs. We all love them, yep including Tara 🙂
But I was looking for something different and ran into the cold oatmeal cult. What a splendid idea to let your creativity run wild. Here’s what I do with them.
Base – Some nut or plant based milk; not regular milk. I’ve tried almond, coconut and oat milk so far. I also use yogurt sometimes but then that becomes a parfait.
Sweetener – Any of these – Palm crystals, Palm sugar, honey or grated jaggery. If you like to add additional sweetness top it with maple syrup.
Grain – Rolled Oats, or Muesli
Nuts and seeds – pumpkin seeds, walnut, cashew, chia, almonds, raisins
Nut butters – peanut or almond
Toppings – figs, berries, seasonal fruits, dates,
Flavor – cacao powder, or vanilla essence, cinnamon, cardamom powder, and nutmeg
I cup grain, 3-cup milk, rest is all up to you 🙂
Now play with these ingredients in any sequence and prepare your jars of goodness. (I bought these Le parfait containers since they looked so chic and so old school all at the same time.) These last for 3 days in the fridge.
