So 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.
Ingredients (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
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;)
