a favorite breakfast recipe
Saturday, November 17, 2018
I thought I would share a favorite breakfast recipe today.
I've been making this baked steel cut oats recipe off and on for a few years now, I put whatever fruits I have on hand for variety, and have used different "milks" and sometimes I will use a "flax egg" instead of a "chia egg" if I don't have chia seeds.
Above is a link to the recipe I use. But like I mention above, I have made some substitutions. I will generally double the recipe so I can use a whole carton of "milk" typically I use vanilla oat milk. It has a bit more protein than almond milk. I generally don't put dried fruit in my bake either, but I use more fresh fruit than the recipe calls for. I've used apples and pears, I have sliced bananas and put them on top, sprinkled with a little sugar for caramelization. I will sometimes add unsweetened shredded coconut in the mix (it's especially good with the bananas!) I get 8 servings out of a double recipe, and I freeze them to bring to work over the week. I generally add fresh berries after I've heated it up, to get another serving or 2 of fruit for breakfast. The last time I made this I added a can of pumpkin, ginger and nutmet along with the cinnamon and put thinly sliced pears over the top to make it pretty, and it tasted pretty good too!
