Delicious Festive Oatmeal
Christmas is coming, only 12 sleeps until I fly home! We have had a very festive long weekend, the tree and decorations are up and I have managed to do most of the Christmas shopping, pretty productive if you ask me 🙂
These past few mornings I have had more time to make breakfasts as opposed to my smoothies and taking overnight oats into work. I have been experimenting with a few ingredients including strawberry, cinnamon and avocado – yum.
Yesterday afternoon I made vegan dark chocolate and coconut Christmas pudding cakes (which will be on the blog tomorrow) and with the left over ingredients I came up with a delicious festive oatmeal recipe this morning.
These oats are dairy free, using almond milk as a substitute which makes it a great low fat breakfast. I have also used a number of powerful superfoods such as cacao, coconut oil and red currants – this breakfast is packed with nutrition.
- 1/2 cup of oats
- 2/3 cup of almond milk
- 1 small handful of red currants
- 1 small handful of raisins
- 1.5 tbsp. of coconut powder
- 1 tbsp. of coconut oil
- 1 small handful of raw cacao nibs
- In a pan, heat the oats, 1 tbsp. of coconut powder, almond milk and coconut oil over a low heat until piping hot and cooked through
- Serve immediately in a bowl with the remaining ingredients sprinkled on top - enjoy!
Quick and wholesome, this vegan Christmas oats recipes proves once again that you don’t need dairy to make a hearty breakfast. Every single one of the ingredients in this bowl of plant based goodness is beneficial to your body and mind. Why not try these festive oats for breakfast during the holidays or on Christmas day itself? Enjoy! Jess x
