Wow, we’re here again. Who would’ve thought? The blog has once again been incredibly silent but for a moment like this, where I’m sharing my favourite oat recipe I thought it needed to be uploaded somewhere you can find it easily again. Whilst I am a massive fan of Instagram and I’m still fairly active on there, I think this is the best place to keep it in case you are ever inclined to give it a go.
This recipe came to me because I absolutely love banana bread, I love blueberry muffins and combine this with cinnamon it’s like a match in heaven. This oat recipe is like eating cake for breakfast and it’s my main motivation for getting out of bed in the morning to have this bowl of deliciousness (if I may say so myself). S
o, without further ado, here is my latest life’s work when it comes to recipes, my oats. Thank you granddad for cooking them for me growing up. This is dedicated to you, even though he would deeply question this recipe. It is definitely not the traditional Swedish style oats he would serve us haha. One thing I am adamant about, which he was too, is they must be made on the stove. No microwaves here. Unless on days when I bring mine to work and reheat them in the microwave. Cold oats are just depressing.
Vegan “Blueberry Banana Bread” Protein Oats
A sprinkle of chia seeds
A sprinkle of flaxseeds
A pinch of salt
1 scoop vegan vanilla protein powder (Massive fan of White Wolf Nutrition if you’re in Australia and Form Nutrition if you’re in the UK)
About double the amount of water to oats
40g frozen blueberries
Cinnamon to taste
10g almond butter
A sprinkle of cacao nibs
A pinch of salt
1/2 cup of Rebel Mylk (Semi skimmed)
Grab a pot, throw in the oats, water, chia seeds and flaxseeds and the salt. Bring to a boil and let it simmer until desired consistency. You may need to add water as you go. I like when they are cooked through and creamy. Not too thick.
Whilst they are cooking, heat your frozen blueberries. I do this in a little pan on the stove too. Once they are cooked through I put them aside and then I chuck in the banana that I’ve cut up and get it all nice and caramelised. God it’d good.
When you’ve got the oats to your desired consistency it’s time to add the protein powder. This will make the oats go really thick, I usually add more water afterwards and let it reheat slightly before pouring them into my coconut bowl (yup I have a specific porridge bowl and wooden porridge spoon).
Top the oats off with the banana, the blueberries, almond butter, walnuts, cacao nibs, the pinch of salt and finally the cinnamon (the more the better in my book, okay there is such a thing as too much cinnamon though). The cherry on top is the Rebel Mylk, I am obsessed with their mylk. It’s amazing but any plant mylk you like will really do to be honest. Pour that on top, sit down and enjoy!
I hope you love them as much as I do!
