Oats…Posted: May 15, 2011
I have missed you!
It’s been so long since I’ve had hot oatmeal that I almost, (but not quite 🙂 ) forgot how good it is. Sometimes it’s just too hot to eat a bowl of steaming oats, especially here in TX when its 90 degrees in April. But lucky me woke up to 50 degree weather this morning and was really craving for a hot bowl of oatmeal. And that is exactly what I had.
Bound to Hold You Over Oats
- 1/3 cup oats
- 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1/3 cup water
- 1 organic egg white
- 2-3 spoonfuls of organic low-fat cottage cheese
I topped mine with blueberries, mango, raspberries, a small dollop of cashew butter, and a sprinkle of chia. This bowl of oats was probably one of the best I’ve ever had. I enjoyed the sweetness from my fruit and the light, but noticeable, salty-ness from the cottage cheese.
Hopefully this cooler weather sticks around so I can eat this again, but I doubt it will. I’ll either have to eat it and sweat…or I can somehow come up with a cold version of this, which I’m already sort of doing in my mind right now. My brains churning and I think I’ve already come up with the ‘bound to hold you over oats’ refrigerator version.
What’s your favorite way to eat oats?
