Mini Assignment #4: Remix

Oatmeal is one of the most basic universal breakfasts. It’s very filling, tastes good and is healthy. Having the same thing for breakfast every morning is boring. Luckily oats are incredibly versatile. I’ve come across hundreds of different oatmeal recipes lately so i’ve decided to “remix” an original oatmeal three different times over the next three mornings. Im looking forward to trying these creative yummy recipes!

2.Apple Pie Oats

Note- The recipe below is from:

https://barefeetinthekitchen.com/apple-cinnamon-oatmeal/

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 3 3/4 cups water
  • 3 small sweet apples or 2 cups apple pieces diced small
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • dash of nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup plus 1-2 tablespoons brown sugar, adjust to taste
  • Butter a teaspoon or so for on top of each serving
  • Optional: chopped pecans just a sprinkling for serving each bowl

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Combine the oats, water, apples, cinnamon and nutmeg in a medium size saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, stirring occasionally. 
  • As soon as it boils, reduce heat to low and simmer for just a few minutes, until the oats are soft and the apples are tender. Remove from the heat and add brown sugar to taste. 
  • The sweeter the apples, the less brown sugar you will need. Scoop into serving bowls and top with butter and pecans if desired. Enjoy!

3.Chocalate Peanut Butter Oats

Note- The recipe below is from:

https://www.eatingbirdfood.com/chocolate-peanut-butter-protein-oatmeal/

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 1 Tablespoon natural peanut butter, for topping
  • 1 teaspoon chocolate chips, for topping (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Microwave: Add oats and almond milk into a bowl and stir to combine. Microwave for 1 minute, then stir and continue to microwave in 30 second increments, stirring between each, until the oatmeal is the consistency you like. I usually cook for a total of 3 minutes, but you’ll know it’s done when most the liquid is absorbed and oats are hot.
  2. Add protein and enjoy: Carefully remove from microwave (bowl will be hot). Stir protein powder into oats until completely dissolved and top with peanut butter and chocolate chips, if using.
