Soaked Oatmeal

Soaked oatmeal

Oatmeal can be such a quick nourishing breakfast, especially when properly prepared. 

Recipe:

1 Cup thick rolled oats, or steel cut oats

2 Cups filtered water (or 3 if using steel cut oats)

1 Tbs. whey or lemon juice

Toppings for each serving (about ¾ Cup):

1-2 Tbs. grass-fed butter or extra virgin coconut oil

2 Tbs. grass-fed cream (optional)

2 tsp. (or to taste) sweetener; pure maple syrup, raw honey, coconut sugar, etc…

1 T. crispy nuts; almond, walnuts, pecans, etc…

1-2 Tbs. fresh seasonal fruit, diced, or dried fruit such as raisins, dried apricot or dried coconut

¼ tsp. powdered cinnamon

2 Tsp. freshly ground flax seeds or chia seeds

(These toppings are optional and the choices are endless, get creative!)

Instructions:

Place all ingredients in a stainless steel pot, leave overnight on stovetop. In the morning, bring to a boil, reduce heat to low covered, stir every minute as it thickens to prevent sticking. This should take only about 5 minutes. If using steel cut oats, it may take a little longer.

Serve hot with optional toppings.

Notes:

You can make a big batch at a time and re-heat portion sizes daily for breakfast (this is great for school aged kids or a quick breakfast). Should last for about 5 days stored in fridge.
