Accents are funny in that they have this odd draw for us, yet we forget we have one, too. No one is without an accent, but the one you’ve got seems like oatmeal to their caviar. – Deb Caletti
I couldn’t decide on what my first post was going to be, and then I whipped up this bowl of oatmeal goodness and had an idea.
- half a nectarine (alternatives: apples, pears, stone fruits)
- 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 – 1.5 tbsp coconut sugar (or any other type of sugar according to your preference)
- oat milk (I only use dairy-free milk)
- 1 cup water
- 3/4 cup rolled oats
Firstly for the nectarines, cut up your nectarine into small cubes and put them in a pot. In the same pot, add about 2-4 splashes of oat milk, just enough to thinly cover the base of the pot and proceed to put the pot over a medium heat.
Next sprinkle over 1/2 a tablespoon of your preferred choice of sugar along with 1-2 dashes of cinnamon. Give everything a good mix in the pot and allow the nectarines to cook and absorb all the flavour, stirring occasionally. You should see the oat milk bubbling in just a minute or so. After about 2-3 minutes, your nectarines should be ready!! (ohhh yasss) Transfer everything over to a small bowl.
For your oatmeal, add 3/4 cup of rolled oats into the same pot and add 1/2 a cup of oat milk and 1 cup of water and put it over a medium heat as well. If you prefer your oatmeal to be creamy, the trick is to stir your oatmeal frequently! When your oatmeal is near done. add in your chia seeds and a dash or two of cinnamon and mix well.
Lastly, transfer your oatmeal to a bowl, sprinkle 1/2 – 1 tbsp of coconut sugar over it and then pour over the nectarines along and there you have it!
I hope you enjoy your oatmeal.
