Sometimes oatmeal is what you wake up craving for breakfast...well maybe it's just me, but I love oatmeal, especially when it comes together like this recipe! It has no cholesterol, its low in sodium and is loaded with potassium and other essential nutrients!
Maple Cherry Walnut Oatmeal
You will need:
1/2 cup oats of your choice (I like Bob's Red Mill extra thick cut)
1 cup water plus 1 tbsp
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp unsweetened almond milk
2 tbsp peanut butter powder
1 tbsp dried cherries
1 tbsp chopped walnuts
1 tbsp maple syrup
Putting it all together:
First, boil the water in a small saucepan, then add the oats. I hated mushy, sticky oatmeal as a kid, so now I add about 2/3 of the oats when the water boils, then add the rest in after a few minutes so there is a little "bite" to them, not just an amorphous glob of oat-goo 😖 You can try this too if you like! 👍
Next add in the vanilla, cinnamon and dried cherries; cook oats 4-5 minutes or until cooked to your preference. Once they are done, remove the pan from heat. Now add in the peanut butter powder and almond milk. Stir until combined, top with walnuts (optional), maple syrup and enjoy!
