On weekday mornings, Vore and I have quite a routine. Since he commutes and has to be at work before me, I’m usually on KP (that’s Kitchen Patrol!) We focus on things that can easily be consumed in the car. Think English muffin, egg and cheese sandwich or almond butter + banana on toasted Ezekiel Bread. No messy oats.
But on the weekend…
No one’s in a hurry. There’s time to linger over coffee. Breakfast bowls and spoons are encouraged. Here’s our go to version.
Vore’s Favorite Weekend Oats
2/3 cups rolled oats
1 tablespoon soy granules
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 2/3 cups milk or almond milk, divided
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons stevia
*Heat a medium size non-stick pan over medium high heat. Add your oats, granules and chia. Allow them to lightly toast.
*Add 1 1/3 cups milk to the pan, stirring constantly. After about 5 minutes, your oats should begin to thicken. Just when you think they’re finished, add in the remaining 1/3 cup milk an cook until it’s fully absorbed. This will make your oats extra creamy.
*Add your oats and enjoy breakfast at the table. No driving allowed.
