Old-school oatmeal is filling and delicious. This recipe is with almond milk, but you can also use ordinary milk if you prefer. It doesn’t take more than 10 minutes to make, and it will keep you full for a long time. Perfect for those days, when you’re so busy, lunch might not happen.
Oatmeal Recipe (1 serving)
½ cup (1.25dL) water
½ cup (1.25dL) almond milk
½ cup (1.25dL) rolled oats (without additives, not the instant ones)
½ teaspoon cinnamon
A pinch of salt
A few drops of honey
If you ask my mom, she would tell you that you should only add water and let the oats simmer for a couple of minutes before adding the rest of the ingredients, and that’s probably the right way to do it, but I would just add everything at once. Bring it to a boil and let it simmer for a couple of minutes until you get the right, thick texture.
You can say a lot about oatmeal, but it’s definitely not pretty, so add a handful of nice toppings to make it look more appetizing. Figs, cocoa nibs, walnuts and banana always work, but sliced apple and cinnamon is also a quick and tasty topping. Drizzle a little honey on top and your oatmeal is ready to eat.
