I make a batch of these oats once a week and have it on hand for a few days. It's great to have in the fridge for busy school mornings and the kids love topping them with different berries and maple syrup. I love mixing up my toppings and make my bowl look really pretty!
What you'll need:
1 cup Rolled Oats (not the “instant oats” variety)
1 cup Water
1 cup Milk (any type of milk will do)
2 tsp Cinnamon
¼ cup Maple Syrup
pinch of Saffron
Toppings of your choice
Add oats and water to a pan, slowly bring to a simmer and let simmer for 1-2 minutes. Add milk and let oats cook through and soften for about 5-7 more minutes. Add cinnamon, maple syrup and saffron. Mix well and let cook for another minute or two. (Makes 2-3 servings)
Top with any fresh fruit, dried fruit, nuts, seeds, nut butters, even dark chocolate!
