Summer break and Oats for breakfast
It seems like I took a break from the blog during summer, just couldn’t find the time or the energy to blog! I have been updating my Instagram though, so I hope you haven’t missed me too much 😉
I got super inspired to blog today though, so I’m finally back and will do my very best to update the blog much more often! If there is anything in particular you would like me to write about, please let me know!
I’ve never been a big fan of oats, and always been jealous of everyone who eat that for breakfast since it’s so healthy and nutritious. But, I’ve done some research on how you can change things up from the classic version (in Sweden that means rolled oats with water in the microwave, and then adding milk and berries/jam/cinnamon), and thought I’d share it with you.
- 1 mashed ripe banana
- 1 dl oats
- 1 dl coconut milk
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Microwave on full effect for 1-1,5 minutes, then take out and stir, and put back for another 1-1,5 minutes.
Until here, it’s pretty basic! But the key lies, as always, in the topping! For me what’s been off putting with oats is the blend texture, and the blend taste. I need different textures and flavors to not get sick of it after a few spoons.
When your done with the microwave add:
- 1/2 scoop protein powder (I used salted caramel, I think vanilla or chocolate would be yummy too)
- Toppings of your choice:
- Fresh berries and fruits (if you have frozen berries, add them in when your stirring the oats at “halftime”)
- Nuts, coconut flakes, puffed quinoa, seeds (chia, sunflower, pumpkin etc.)
- Nut butter
- Dried fruits and berries
- Quark, cottage cheese, or greek yogurt (I personally didn’t try this, but found this in another recipe)
I chose fresh blueberries, raspberries, grated coconut, pumpkin seeds, puffed quinoa, and crunchy peanut butter. Yummy!
