Let’s start with the most traditional recipe: oatmeal!
The most practical breakfast option with oats is oatmeal. It’s a simple, quick and filling dish that’s packed with many nutrients
Write down the ingredients:
- 1/4 cup oatmeal;
- 1 cup plant milk;
- 20 g apple (or other fruit);
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon powder;
- 1 teaspoon raisins, berries, etc
- 1 tablespoon honey – if you want it sweeter;
Soak the oatmeal in water for a few minutes. Heat the milk in a saucepan over medium heat and add the chopped apple and cinnamon powder. When the apple is almost cooked (about 3 minutes), add the oats and cook them with the milk.
After 1 minute, when the porridge has the right consistency and the oats are cooked, take the pot off the stove and pour the porridge into a bowl. Stir the honey into the porridge and garnish it with raisins, berries, coconut flakes or other ingredients.
The second recipe is Overnight Oats – (oatmeal and plant milk prepared the night before).
This recipe is very convenient and easy to make. You can prepare it on Sunday night for the whole week or for the next day.
For this you’ll need ½ cup of oatmeal, ½ cup of plant milk, 1 teaspoon of chia seeds and 1 to 2 teaspoons of maple syrup or pure honey.
Mix the oatmeal and chia seeds in a canning jar. If you like, you can also add cinnamon or cocoa powder. Then add the plant milk and mix all the ingredients until the oatmeal is completely covered. Let the mixture sit overnight or for at least 2 hours in the refrigerator.
