‘Breakfast is the most important meal of the day’. Is it true? As long as I can have this Breakfast Bowl, I am not sure if I care.
I found the recipe for this version of oatmeal in Instapot’s 4th version of their app. I eliminated some ingredients, added what I like, and I do ❤️ the results.
1 C steel cut oats
2 C water
1 C milk of choice
Cinnamon to taste
2 drops of vanilla extract.
Put all of the above in your Instapot. Stir so all of the oats get wet.
3 minutes of high pressure, natural release, and we have creamy oatmeal.
(I may have shown my Breakfast Bowl of Yum to SpecialK and called it “Porridge or Gruel”.)
I enjoy it fresh and refrigerate remainders. I reheat each 1/2 C serving approx 45 seconds and this is the time it all gets interesting.
To the top of each bowl, I add fresh blueberries (soon to be frozen ones as I am out of fresh), toasted walnuts and some Maple Grove Farms Sugar Free Maple Flavor Syrup.
Creamy, crunchy, juicy, and sweet; have I missed anything? Creamy oats because they were cooked with milk, juicy blueberries, buttery crisp walnuts, and some sweetness. I tried pecans, and they just weren’t right.
Being that fresh blueberries will not be fresh year round, I foresee apple cinnamon oats in my future. While there are blueberries, I have this bowl of yum. Good to the last spoonful.
What is your favorite ‘no thought’ breakfast?
