Warm, creamy oatmeal is such a comforting breakfast favorite, especially on cold winter days! And when it’s prepared using the traditional method of soaking, it’s a hearty meal that packs a solid nutritional punch as well.
Yet, as much as my family adores soaked oatmeal, sometimes it can be … well … boring! So in an effort to keep things fresh and exciting, I’ve developed a few new variations on our favorite cold morning breakfast, which I’ll be sharing each week this month. This first one is my new dream breakfast – it’s so incredibly yummy that you may find yourself daydreaming about it!
What’s not to love? It’s wholesome soaked gluten-free oatmeal with a generous handful of candied pecans, a drizzle of pure dark maple syrup and a big ole splash of creamy milk. It sounds pretty basic, but the flavor combination is so delightfully complex with subtle hints of cinnamon and rich pecan and maple undertones. Yum!
This is just one delicious way we like to spice up our morning oatmeal. For more ideas, check out my special recipe section devoted to Wholesome Breakfast Porridges. Enjoy!
