I love waking up with a warm bowl of oatmeal in the morning. Whether slowly cooked and creamy or soaked overnight – oats provide your body with many benefits. Eating oatmeal can lower your cholesterol, especially your LDL, or ‘bad’ cholesterol. If you’ve been diagnosed with high cholesterol, consider adding oatmeal to your daily menu. Oatmeal is also a really good source of fiber. That means when you eat oats for breakfast, you’re going to feel full for a long time!
The best thing about oatmeal is that you can get really creative with it: you can add fresh fruit, dried fruit, superfoods, nuts, honey, peanut butter, coconut oil, raw cacao, fresh herbs, dried herbs – you name it. This version with almond milk, cinnamon, grilled pear, walnuts, honey & bee pollen is sweet & creamy. I got the recipe idea from my personal trainer Benjamin, check out his website here!
What do you need for one portion?
- 250 ml almond milk
- 4 tbs oats
- 1/2 ripe banana, sliced
- 1/4 pear, sliced
- 2 tbs raisins
- 1/2 ts cinnamon
- 2 tbs walnuts
- 1 tbs bee pollen
- 1 tbs honey
This is how you make it:
- Place the oats and raisins with the almond milk in a small pan, heat it up until it boils and stir occasionally
- Put it on medium heat, add the sliced banana and mash it well with a fork
- Grill the pear (pan/oven) until it’s soft and golden brown
- Heat it until the banana is ‘melted’ with the oatmeal, this takes about 3 minutes – stir to avoid burning
- Add the cinnamon and stir
- Put it in a small bowl, add the grilled pear, walnuts, honey & bee pollen
That’s it, easy right? Enjoy your creamy oatmeal breakfast!
