A million ways with OATS !

Oats

Hot or Cold

Water or Milk

Thick or Runny

Breakfast or Bedtime

Overnight night or Instant

Microwave or stove top

You can have oats so many ways that they are such a versatile and under rated meal option. I’ve lined out all the different ways that you could possibly have oats so that you never get bored. I usually have oats everyday post or pre workout for a great way to recover, sometimes I have bedtime oats or it can just make a great snack. I’ve linked up recipes and also written a simple how to guide at the bottom of the page.

TOPPINGS

  • Fresh fruit
  • Dried Fruit
  • Nuts
  • Nut Butter
  • Yoghurt
  • Granola
  • Buckwheat/Rice Puffs
  • Avocado

How To:

  1. Add oats + Volume booster + liquid to a bowl and stir until combined. (Note: add optional egg white here)

For thicker oats add less liquid, alternatively add more liquid for runnier and creamier oats.

  1. Microwave for 2 mins or stir constantly on a stove, or rather bake in the oven for 20-30mins for baked oats.
  2. Once cooked add optional protein powder. (Add protein powder before baking oats)
  3. Then get busy with your toppings (Note: if using dried fruits such as dates add these before cooking, the heat turns them gooey and caramel like)
  4. To make overnight oats follow the above recipe but do not add your toppings. Wait for your oatmeal to cool down before putting it in the fridge overnight. In the morning either reheat your oats or have them cold and then top them. Note that eating food straight from the fridge causes it to loose its flavour a bit so you may want to get them to room temp or do a quick blast in the microwave.
