Normally I do my standard oatmeal:

  • 55 gr. of oatmeal
  • 250 ml of almond milk
  • 1 apple
  • linseed

Of course, sometimes I change the fruit I use for a banana or some frozen fruits. A current favourite is adding some peanut butter  or some soy yogurt. But sometimes you need something different.. Instead of making a few breakfast posts I’d thought I’d share a few of them with you.

Morning coffee oatmeal

This first one is a little simpler version of the ‘Oatmealmochachino‘  I posted a very long time ago, but still very tasteful I’d say. Also, perfect instant wake-up when you had a bad night, you overslept and you don’t have the time to have bother breakfast and coffee 😛

What do you need (1 serving)

  • half a cup of oatmeal
  • 3/4 cup of milk
  • 1/4 cup of strong coffee, I used espresso
  • 1 banana
  • peanut butter
  • agave (optional)
  1. Combine oatmeal, coffee and milk in a pan and leave to simmer for a few minutes until done. For a quick option, put in a bowl and microwave for 3 minutes, mixing it halfway.
  2. Cut banana into slices.
  3. Transfer oatmeal to a bowl, top with banana and the peanut butter. If you have very strong coffee (like I had) you might want to add some sweeter.

Golden Oatmeal

I’ve been reading a lot online about the magic of turmeric. I’m a big fan of the stuff in my dinners, but never thought to use it for oatmeal. So I’d say, worth the experiment

What do you need (1 serving)

  • half a cup of oatmeal
  • 200 ml of plant-based milk (I used Rice/coconut from Provamel)
  • 1 banana
  • half a tablespoon of tahin (sesame paste)
  • Turmeric
  • Ginger
  • Cardamom
  • Cinnamon
  1. Pre-heat oven to 220 degrees Celsius, slice your banana lengthwise and in halves. Put in the oven for about 10 minutes
  2. Cook your oatmeal like you are used to, adding the spices at the end and give it a good stir.
  3. Pour in a bowl, put the banana’s on top and drizzle the tahin on top
