Waking up to a cold morning, putting on my slippers, and making a warm bowl of oatmeal is one of my favorite things to do this time of year. And when you soak your oatmeal overnight, making breakfast in the morning can be simple and nourishing. The only thing you need to do is to put your oats into some warm filtered water with a splash of yogurt, lemon juice, or whey. Then you cover it with a towel and enjoy your oats the next morning as they cook up in no time. That’s just another perk to soaking: it saves you time in the morning.
Maple Oatmeal with Coconut Sprinkles
- Combine oats, one cup of warm water and whey in a glass bowl, cover with a towel and let soak overnight or 24 hours.
- Transfer soaked oatmeal to a saucepan, add sea salt and water and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Then lower to a simmer for 2-5 minutes, until oatmeal thickens.
- Scoop oatmeal into bowls and add butter, maple syrup, and coconut sprinkles. Add a little raw milk or yogurt to taste.
