The wonderful autumn flavours that intertwine in this extremely tasty bowl make it irresistible.
Autumn is here and this also means slightly lower temperatures. On these colder and foggier days, hot breakfasts are a necessity. We love making oatmeal because it warms you up as well as fills you up. We like to add seasonal ingredients, so in the fall we often make porridge with hokkaido pumpkin and spices, which create a wonderful taste and smell that is impossible to resist! This delicious oatmeal is very easy to prepare, and it fill the apartment with a wonderful aroma of cinnamon, cloves, ginger and anise, which will create real autumn atmosphere. You don’t need sugar or other sweeteners as mashed banana adds just the right amount of sweetness to the oatmeal. Just make sure you use a really ripe banana with some brown spots, because it is the sweetest.
We simply adore porridges as they are extremely tasty and healthy and can be prepared in so many different ways. You can add various spices, proteins, fruits, vegetables (pumpkins, carrots, zucchini…) to it and add any toppings you desire. Decorating is definitely the best part of the preparation, you can make a real masterpiece from a seemingly boring bowl. You can add vegan yoghurt, nuts, dried and fresh fruit, chocolate, nut butters and more. Let your imagination run wild and create crazy delicious and wonderful oatmeal bowl.
If you also love oats, then you should definitely try baked oats with raspberries, which is a great healthy breakfast that tastes like a dessert!
