[contains ad / werbung] People keep asking me how I prepare my oatmeal. So today I want to quickly share with you my basic recipe and my most favorite variations.
To be honest I never used to eat warm oatmeal. I always preferred overnight oats in a way and last summer I even went for raw oats ( I use these: Gekeimte, glutenfreie Bio Haferflocken *) They contain a hell lot of nutrients by the way. The regular oats we buy in stores get vaporized what makes them lose most of their nutritious potential but the thing is that oat contains more fat than other grains do and this fat makes them oats taste bitter after only a short time. Customers don’t like bitter oats. You really need to use them up quickly.
Be that as it may, this autumn I discovered my love for cooked oatmeal. It’s warm, it’s satisfying, the perfect comfort food prepared in just a few minutes. Sometimes I eat it as my post workout meal, adding some hemp protein powder (absolutely optional) and on other days …I eat it twice a day 🙂 Basically you can never get sick of it. And if I, once in a while, want something more protein rich and “lighter” I’ll go for my healthy Cookie Dough Pudding.
During the short time of my cooked oatmeal love story I tried out different things. For example mixing oats and buckwheat flakes. I definitively like that but I wouldn’t recommend to have a higher ratio than 50% buckwheat flakes. I think otherwise your porridge will be too “watery”. Oats just make this perfect consistency. In this context I have to admit though that I prefer cooking my oats with water only. On the one hand you save so much money because plant milk is pretty expensive and on the other hand I like to use as few “refined” products as possible. Just oats, water, banana, spices…
I don’ use any additional sweetener except bananas and some protein powder from time to time but of course you can add more sweetness if you prefer.
My secret tip is to mix fine and rolled oats so that your oatmeal gets super sticky but you still have something to chew on 😀
Oh and if you feel super hungry and don’t want to eat like one package of oats (I already tried this first hand. Won’t recommend it tho. Thirsty as f*** ) always add zucchini.
50 g rolled oats
40 g glutenfree fine oats
1 small ripe banana
1 tbsp psyllium husks
Variation 1 – Chocolate Oats
2 tbsp raw cocoa
1,5 tbsp chocolate protein powder
Variation 2 – Berrylicious
1 handful of frozen red berries
Variation 3 – Nutrient Bomb for hungry moments
1/2 zucchini grated
1 tsp matcha powder
1 tsp spirulina
1 tsp vanilla
(I add matcha and spirulina at the end, after turning off the heat so that the substantial nutrients won’t get destroyed by cooking)
Variation 4 – Turmeric Oatmeal
1-2 tsp turmeric latte spice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp chia seeds
frozen berries (tip: place some extra berries at the bottom of your bowl and pour over the warm oatmeal. So good!)
- Bring some water to boil. Add oats.
- Mash banana and add it together with the other ingredients. Stir while cooking on medium heat. Add water if needed.
- The oatmeal is done when you have a sticky porridge-like consistency
- Pour into a bowl and top with your favorites. I love to use chocolate and frozen berries that both melt on the warm oatmeal.
