I have a confession to make – I’m in love with breakfast. Lately… it’s been oatmeal. I’ve gone the lazy route and used instant microwave oats (I know, shame on me) but I can’t be bothered to sit and wait for steel cut oats. Although – there are now instant steel cut oat packets and the ingredients are just steel cut oats! (If anyone has the scoop on this – please indulge me).
To compensate for the instant-oatage, I sauteed some apple and plum to top it off. It was a thing of beauty… that I will repeat tomorrow… and the next day…
1 Packet Instant Oats (or steel cut, whatever you prefer)
1 tbsp almond butter
1/2 tsp maple syrup
1/2 an Apple, cut into thin slices
1 Plum, cut into thin slices
2 tbsp coconut oil
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tbsp lemon juice
plum jam, almonds, chia seeds & maple syrup (for topping)
1. In a small frying pan, melt coconut oil and sauté apple and plum slices until tender. Add lemon juice, ground ginger and cinnamon.
2. Prepare oats as directed on package. Stir in almond butter and maple syrup.
3. Top oatmeal with sauteed apples and plums, whole almond, plum jam, chia seeds and additional maple syrup.
4. Have an oatgasm.
