Raw Vanilla Oats

| Breakfast

IMG_4555So pretty!  My husband enjoys food but isn’t half as adventurous as I am.  This frustrates me at times because I am always trying new things and want to share the experience with him, but his philosophy is often,”If this works for me, why try something else?”  So when I discovered the wonder of raw steelcut oats and wanted to share it with him, his reply was,”I already eat cooked oats so I don’t need raw oats.”  Sigh….

So I made him raw oats anyway (hee hee:) in a fancy glass with a heart on:D  He couldn’t help but smile and after eating it, he said it was delicious.

Personally I prefer something more rich and flavourful, like my chocolate peanut butter oats, but since he likes to keep things simple, I made a plain vanilla version.

IMG_4558Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 2/3 cup steelcut oats (I don’t pre-soak mine)
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice (I used almond milk)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla powder
  • 1 heaped teaspoon cinnamon (or more to taste)
  • Sweetener of choice to taste (agave, maple syrup, honey…)
  • pinch salt

Instructions

Add all ingredients to your blender and blend until smooth.  Taste and if you approve – serve and enjoy.  If you would like it thicker, feel free to add 1/2 teaspoon xanthun/ guar gum.

Spread the love;)
