Oatbowl – The #1 healthy power breakfast
Oatbowl, porridge or cereal. No matter which preparation you choose, the basis for all of them is oatmeal. You can conjure up a healthy and satisfying breakfast in no time.
Haferbowl, Porridge, oatmeal muesli, no matter how it is prepared, it is 95% of what I eat for breakfast in the morning. I always have the ingredients for this in my house and so I never have to think about what I want to eat in the morning. I just know.
It is something I really look forward to in the evening!
The First Time
The first time is already several years ago. I remember I was reading the book from Dr Kris Verburgh, The Food Hourglass. You have to know I was a regular toast, butter and cheese guy. However, from the first time I followed up this breakfast suggestion I was instantly HOOKED!
Sure, I admit that I did not expect it to be part of my daily start into the day, but as I had already seen, that is exactly what happened.
I experimented which composition and method of preparation I liked best and I got stuck with two variations. Cold for the summer and warm for the winter.
I also replace almonds with walnuts or linseeds with chia seeds, but everything else remains the same.
3 tablespoons oat flakes
1 teaspoon sunflower seeds
1 teaspoon crushed linseed
1 teaspoon crushed almond nuts
1 teaspoon puffed amaranth
2 – 3 sliced dates
1 up to 3 teaspoons cinnamon
Mix all ingredients. Add milk. Done! Please make sure it’s vegetable milk.
Preparation goes very fast. It will give you the energy you need to start the day and is also very easy for your body to process because of the oat or almond milk.
In the cold season, the whole thing tastes very tasty even when warm.
Boil up oat flakes with oat or almond milk and cinnamon. Leave to stand for 3 minutes and pour over the remaining ingredients.
If you like, you can also put the banana into the pot, then the whole thing becomes a little sweeter.
Want more variety?
Boil up oat flakes with oat or almond milk. Let everything simmer for a few minutes until it gets a little bit creamy. In the meantime, prepare fruits, nuts and seeds for a toppíng instead of mixing all the ingredients. Here, the eye will eat along.
Choose fruits according to taste and season and colourfully combine them. Here are some impressions with the following ingredients:
Apples, pomegranate, kiwi, banana, mandarin, almonds, chia seeds, flaxseed, sunflower seeds, coconut…
On warm summer days, I like to make myself a smoothie bowl once in a while. Instead of oat milk, I use lupine or soy yoghurt with the oat flakes and take fruits of the season.
