Happy Sunday everyone.
It’s cold here in Norway, so when I have time in the morning (which I have most days), I love having a warm and tasty breakfast. Personally I’m a huge fan of oatmeal. The reason I love having it is because it fills me up for hours, I’m able to train really hard and not feel empty at all, and it tastes amazing!!
So I thought it was only right that my first recipe post would be an oatmeal one. And also, not only one, but my two favorite oatmeal recipes!
If you are trying the “new year, new me” thing that we all pretend is gonna change our lives every year, than these recipes are perfect!
The base of all my oatmeals goes like this..
- 1dl water
- 1dl unsweetned almond milk
- 1dl oats
- 2Tbls chia seeds.
And then depending on the day I add different things into it. The first one I’m gonna share with you is the “carrot cake oatmeal”. This one is inspired by Niomi Smart who’s a huge inspiration to me. I’ve changed up her recipe to how I like it.
So we begin with the base. Then we add..
- 1tsp cinnamon
- 1tsp nutmeg
- 1tsp ginger powder
- 2Tblsp sweetner of choice.. (I like maple syrup or honey)
- 1 grated carrot.
Add all of that with the base and let it cook until its warm..
Then I top it with whatever I’m feeling that specific day, but I love having some almonds or walnuts, flax seeds, coconut flakes, blueberries and bananas…
Just to let you know.. Having a carrot in your oatmeal tastes soooo much better and it sounds, and it’s also super good for you!
The second oatmeal recipe is something I came up with myself. I love apple and cinnamon – anything, so I decided to make an “apple pie oatmeal”.
Let’s Just begin with the same base, and add in:
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp ginger powder
- 1/2 an apple, garted
- 1/2 apple, cut into pieces
- 1 banana
- A bunch of rasisns
- Sweetner of choice (honey or maple syrup)
Then again, I mix all that with the base and let it cook, just like last time.
And top it with whatever you’d like.
And WALLAH, there you have the my two favorite oatmeal recipes. I hope you guys will try them, and get back to me with what you think!
I just have to explain the pictures.. I made both these recipes for my family, so that’s why it looks sooo much more than the recipe 🙂
