For the stovetop (one serving):
Bring 4/5 cup of water and/or milk to a boil. Add 1/2 cup Rolled Naked Oats, and reduce temperature to a simmer. Cook for 4-5 minutes, or until a nice creamy consistency is reached. Remove from heat, and add milk and toppings as desired.
Some Fun topping Suggestions:
Add a handful of chopped hazelnuts and a sprinkle of cacoa chips to your bowl.
Grated carrots and crushed pineapple added to the boiling water, and cinnamon & ginger sprinkled on top and maple syrup to sweeten
Applesauce replacing some of the water, with cinnamon, nutmeg, and hemp hearts added with the oats and a drizzle of maple syrup
Dried dates and honey with chopped almonds and cinnamon
Pumpkin puree with a wee spoonful of creamcheese, brown sugar, cinnamon and cardamom
Dried cranberries and chia seeds with honey
Pecans and cinnamon with a bit of honey. Adds crunch and tastes like pecan pie, but for breakfast!
A mushy banana with a dollop of peanut butter and a handful of chocolate chips stirred in
Fresh or frozen (Manitoba!) blueberries or saskatoons with maple syrup and almond milk
Diced apples with raisins, maple syrup, ground flax seeds, and cinnamon
Chopped mangoes with dried coconut, a splash of coconut milk, and a sprinkle of cardamom (yum!)
Turn your oatmeal into oatmeal pudding by cracking an egg into the pot just after you add the oats. Stir like mad to avoid any stringy lumps, and then add your toppings. Chopped bananas, pecans, and vanilla is pretty classic…and pretty delicious!
