It’s FREEZING in Toronto. Fall who? Kidding. I really hope we get a proper Fall, not the usual 3-days-then-hello-winter sort of thing.
Anyways, with the temperatures severely dropping outside, I like to keep them high temp inside…? As in... in my stomach. This sounded less weird in my head. I make this oatmeal/porridge recipe at least 4 times a week, and I LOVE it. The great thing is that it’s so simple and customizable, you can easily substitute one thing for another. Heads up - I eyeball everything!
Oats (rolled or steel cut)
Toppings are customizable. I added almond butter, hemp seeds, coconut & blueberries
Approximate portioning I go for, for 2 bowls
Start off with portioning your oats in a pot and cover with hot water
Leave on medium heat for 3ish minutes
Add a handful of chia seeds and stir
Mash banana, add in and stir (this is KEY for creamy and flavourful oatmeal)
Add a little (or a lot) of cinnamon
Keep stirring and lower heat
Add a splash of milk and take off the stove
Add your toppings and DIG IN!
The most photogenic breakfast! & yummy.
