Some of you might know that I have moved to Edmonton in Canada two months ago. Even though this is an exciting time in my life, I’m missing my home, my family, my animal friends, and… my kitchen. No more fancy kitchen tools, and only one set of plates, zero linens, and zero props. Nevertheless, I decided to post my go-to recipe for oats. A simple recipe goes well with simple pictures, right?
This recipe for quick oatmeal is frequented quite highly over here, especially since the temperatures dropped to -15°C this week. Sadly, the smoothie season is done and over. The oats are done in 10 minutes max, taking into account that you’re still a bit sleepy. I especially love cinnamon and raisins in my warm oats, paired with maple syrup and some tangy fruits. Fresh fruits are getting scarce this time around, so I’m relying heavily on frozen fruit. I prefer berries in my oatmeal, but pretty much anything goes!
1 cup quick oats
2 cups water
1 cup plant-based milk
1/4 cup raisins
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 handful frozen berries
1. In a medium sized pot heat up the oats, water, and milk. Bring to a boil, then let it simmer for about 2-3 minutes while stirring every now and then.
2. Once it thickened to desired consistency, add raisins, maple syrup, and cinnamon.
3. Spoon into bowls, then top with frozen berries (or any other desired toppings, f.e. nut butter, fresh fruit, nuts, chocolate, etc.)
